Residents at a care home in Kingston took to the water for an exciting afternoon of boating

To top off a fun-filled summer, residents at Sherwood Grange care home on Robin Hood Lane were treated to a luxury river cruise on the River Thames.

Residents and team members at Sherwood Grange departed from Kingston upon Thames as they set off on their adventure down the Thames. As well as taking in the beautiful scenery, residents also spotted a number of famous landmarks along the way such as Hampton Court Palace, Walton Bridge and Raven Ait Island.

Following an afternoon of sightseeing, the boat moored up while residents were treated to a delicious champagne lunch, complete with smoked salmon blinis. After a relaxing dinner surrounded by wildlife, residents discussed their highlights of the day as they sailed home.

Rick Mayne, home manager at Sherwood Grange, said: “At Sherwood Grange we are always looking for exciting events and activities that residents can take part in within the local community as part of our Activity Based Care approach. We have a few keen sailors here at the home, so the trip has been excitedly discussed among the residents for quite some time.

“The residents had a wonderful day on the boat, and enjoyed taking in the scenery and feeding the birds. Many residents will have grown up in the local area, or have spent a lot of time here, so revisiting some of the well-known landmarks proved to be a great reminiscence activity.”

Sherwood Grange has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full time residential and dementia care, as well as short term respite care.
