Residents at Heathside care home in Woking have completed their virtual cruise of the world by experiencing some American culture.
The virtual cruise project has seen the staff and residents visit six different countries over the last six months, all from the comfort of their lounge.
Care Home Manager Jag Singh said the residents and staff have really enjoyed immersing themselves in each new destination: “We wanted to create the most realistic experience possible, learning the language, listening to native music, cooking the local cuisine and swapping stories about our holidays.
“Our chef was recently trained on taster sessions so this was a great chance for them to put this into practice and show off their culinary skills.
“We made a scrapbook to document our virtual travels, which is a wonderful memento for the resident to look back at all the fun we’ve had.”
