Swaffham Nursing Home Receives Fundraising Boost For Sensory Equipment, Thanks To Lions Group

The staff and residents at Meadow House Nursing Home in Swaffham would like to extend their heart-felt thanks to the Swaffham Lions for its fundraising efforts, which led to the group raising an incredible £800 for the home.

The Lions Club held a special quiz night in support of the home, which is aiming to raise £7,000 for some new, top of the range sensory equipment for its residents.  A cheque was handed over to staff and residents, before Lions Club members received a tour of the home and met with residents.

Meadow House provides residential and nursing care and specialises in supporting people with neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis.  Many of the residents have complex needs and equipment such as this is vital in enabling staff to provide them with the best support and stimulation possible.

The home, which is rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, supports residents with a range of activities and facilities, including dedicated physiotherapy centre, led by specialist, experienced staff. The equipment they have bought, will specifically help with mobility and social interaction.

Home Manager Joanna Jankowska said, “We were absolutely thrilled to receive this incredibly generous donation from the Swaffham Lions.

“We work to provide the very best care for our residents, many of whom live with extremely complex challenges caused by their medical conditions.  By helping us fundraise for this new sensory equipment, the Lions are helping us to improve the quality of life for our residents and to ensure they are happy and stimulated.  The impact of their generosity really is quite significant and we are so grateful.”
