Arthur House care home in Wimbledon, part of Priory Adult Care (formerly Amore Care), welcomed students from Ricard’s Lodge High School as part of the school’s annual Community Day.
Three students visited Arthur House, Nadia Ahmad, Anne Thomas and Megan Schiller, and spent the day with residents. They exchanged stories about their lives, listening to the fascinating memories of the older people and joining in a number of activities.
Arthur House is a small and intimate residential care home, supporting up to 15 older people. It provides high quality care for people with physical needs who require assistance and care. The homely and comfortable environment enables Arthur House to provide person-centred care tailored to the needs of our residents.
Noreen Cecil-Purvis, home manager, said: “We were delighted that the students took the time to visit Arthur House and spend time with the residents.
“It’s so important that the older and younger generations have mutual respect and understanding. Our residents thoroughly enjoyed hearing all about the exciting lives of the students and in return shared their own life experiences and memories from their youth.
“I’m sure that the young people gained a lot from spending time at Arthur House and firm friendships have been forged. This was a very positive experience for everyone involved.”
