Enjoying the Fruits of a Healthy Donation

Staff at The Chiswick have been kept nutritionally ‘powered’ to help fight the COVID 19 virus with the kind help and support of Fruitful Office Ltd.

The fruit delivery company has generously supplied us with weekly donations of fruit boxes that have been a real morale booster for our staff and helped to maintain their fitness and energy levels during this difficult time.

Eating fruit delivers a range of well documented benefits but employers who make fruit readily available for their workforce see additional advantages. For example, a recent survey showed that 81% of staff thought that having fresh fruit available improved their quality of life at work, 70% started eating more fruit and 45% were eating fewer unhealthy snacks.

The Chiswick team positively look forward to their weekly delivery, which has become a talking point and something that brings a ‘feel good’ factor. Centre Director, Steve Winter said: “The concept of fruit box delivery to each of our Departments and services where staff need an extra nutitional boost to keep them going is a great idea.”

“Our staff have enjoyed the kind donations from Fruitful Office Ltd and we are extremely grateful for their kindness during a time that has been, and continues to be, difficult for our workforce.”

Off to the Flicks

Residents look forward to our regular film afternoons where they sit back in their social bubbles and enjoy re-watching a much-loved movie or something they may have missed first time around. The aftermath often prompts lively conversations as viewers share their opinions and highlights.

Some popular films include:

On Golden Pond, My Fair Lady, Singing in the Rain, Grumpy Old Men, Driving Miss Daisy, The Wizard of Oz, Billy Elliot, Mama Mia, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and anything with Laurel and Hardy.

Our former Cinema Room has not seen much use of it due to the restrictions arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. We are having this area revamped to provide a much better and more accessible space where residents and their families can go to enjoy a coffee and cake, herbal tea, and just spend time away from their bedrooms. Our film afternoons will remain available in the communal lounge areas at the nursing centre.
