Reconnecting loved ones with virtual care home cruise
Family holidays are all about magical moments and spending precious time with your loved ones. And our first-ever two-month long virtual cruise is doing the very same - just like on our Birchwood Residential Care Home cruise-liner.
Usually a care home in Essex, it has transformed into a ship as part of the national Sanctuary Care Cruise. The Birchwood cruise-liner has brought together two particular passengers - Mr and Mrs Walker, who are both residents of the home.
Albert Walker explains: “My wife and I both live on board but in different suites and we are having the most wonderful time on our Sanctuary Care Cruise. After every day I just want to go to the crew to thank them for the wonderful time I’m enjoying with my wife. We’ve even enjoyed a romantic Portuguese tapas style supper - complete with local port!
“It’s such an amazing experience, I have a passport and individual boarding passes - it’s like a real holiday, a real holiday with my wonderful wife.”
