Virtual Reality

We introduced Virtual Reality during activities this afternoon.  The ladies experienced a magical story in an enchanted forest where things came to life.  They came face to face with a dragon in a deep colourful forest where nature came alive.  We look forward to the next experience!

Thank You

Our local Waitrose in Gerrards Cross kindly offered to enter Swarthmore into their Community Matters Scheme in May. We have received a generous amount of £333.00. We will put this towards an area for activities for our residents in due course when we have put some ideas together. I would like to thank Ketki Mehta, Partner & Community Lead at Waitrose and Partners for organising this opportunity. Thank you from all at Swarthmore Care Home

VE Day Celebrations

We made the most of VE Day celebrations with resident's and staff.  The day started with a couple of minutes silence to remember the fallen. Ann Marie and Torrie arranged a lovely day for everyone. Our Chef Ana arranged a celebration lunch in keeping with the theme. Corned beef sandwiches, sausage rolls and amazing cakes were enjoyed by all.   We spent the rest of the afternoon dancing which followed with laughter and some tears too. We all sang along and talked through memories of the end of the war.  A lovely day enjoyed by all.
