Residents at RMBI Home Prince Edward Duke of Kent Court in Stisted, Essex, have travelled around the world and swum with sharks from the comfort of their armchairs, thanks to cutting edge virtual reality technology. Residents marvelled at being able to virtually visit a host of different countries by wearing a high tech VR headset. They enjoyed exploring beaches and many other exotic locations, seeing wild animals and other extraordinary sights. Some of the residents even chose to try a ‘shark experience’ where the wearer feels like they are in the sea with sharks.
At 99 years old, Cornwallis Court resident Jean Wood shows that she is still young at heart as she jumps onboard a Harley Davidson. After telling staff at the Home in Bury St Edmunds that she’d never been on the back of a motorbike, they were keen to help Jean build new memories and have an adventure to remember. 
Residents at Devonshire Court, in Oadby, enjoyed a special spring time treat when three adorable lambs came to visit. The arrival of Larry, Laurence and Malteser delighted residents and staff alike who were only too happy to give them a cuddle and take turns feeding them with milk from a bottle. The lambs, who are around six weeks old, were brought to the Home by local charity The Phoenix Children's Foundation. The charity provides therapy animals for people of all ages.
