March Activities

1st April



March has been a busy month with a sweet ending!

We say farewell and thank you to the girls who have finished volunteering for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. They've been a real breath of fresh air. Zoe who is a work experience art student, worked together with Wendy to produce some very seasonable sheep! A therapeutic art class with residents.  Zoe has been on placement and working on something special... watch this space for more updates! We are very fortunate that we have so many talented people at Swarthmore.

Chris Brown visited and talked about his time as Mayor and then as councillor for GX. An interesting chat about council work in GX from the Christmas Lights, the common and highways.

Monty, one of our Pet Therapy dogs enjoyed a fuss with residents and was keen to see the birthday card from the King as Peggy enjoyed her 100th birthday with everyone at Swarthmore.

On Thursday 28th March 2024 the TVAP Community Choir invited family and TVAP friends, including residents from Swarthmore Care Home to watch (and join in with) their heartwarming Spring Singalong. We were treated to a wonderful spread, as always, of homemade treats so thank you to everyone involved with our Refreshment Branch. Crafts were available to help raise funds, largely thanks to friends from the Crafty Little Monday's group. Claire mentioned that it has been a year of emotions to see how much the group has grown together and not just progressed vocally, but accepting, including and supporting abilities.

Residents and Staff celebrated Em's 21st birthday, enjoying a slice of cake and a cup of tea together.  Congrats - Em.

Easter bingo and a quiz - Trixie guessed the name of the chick which was Penny! Well done to all that took part. The Easter bunny came to Swarthmore ... we had some happy residents and an amazing carer (sorry bunny) that always goes that extra mile to make people smile.  

Throughout the month, our residents enjoyed a plethora of activities, ensuring both mental stimulation and physical well-being.

Let's hope the weather improves as we move forward into April.
