Game, Set, Match at Home of Compassion

It was Game, Set and Match for the residents and their families at the Home of Compassion in Thames Ditton.  To get everyone in the Wimbledon mood, staff sported painted tennis balls on their arms and faces.  Our very own Nancy Kirk, donned a tennis dress, sweat band complete with racket and served strawberries and ice cream to all those who packed in to this popular event.

For the Ladies final, the general consensus of opinion backed Garbine Muguruza as the new pretender.  The rain fell and the roof on Centre Court certainly earned its money.  Oh’s and Ahh’s were abound during the first set, and it soon became obvious that Venus was not at her bountiful best.  Beating such a champion in straight sets makes us suspect Garbine is one to watch in the future.

The following day we all reconvened for the Gentlemen’s Final and the atmosphere got a lot more serious.  Only the most avid tennis fans ignored the sunny day outside to watch Federer show Cilic the ropes in a show of grace culminating in a variety of shots not normally evident in the modern men’s serve dominated game.  In contrast to the Ladies Final, brains and experience triumphed over brawn and youth and the room was quietly pleased when the charming Swiss man held the trophy aloft.

Home of Compassion provides residential, nursing and dementia care in a luxurious care home, set in delightful surroundings in the heart of Thames Ditton. The impressive Grade II* mansion has been recently restored and extended to create an extremely comfortable, modern care home which sets new standards for care for up to 70 elderly people.
