Silver Wishes Explained...

 As part of the Silver Wishes initiative, we asked every resident at a Quantum Care home to make a wish. No matter how big or how small, we are determined to grant as many of those wishes as possible, but we need your help.

From one resident’s dream of reaching dizzying heights with a trip in a hot air balloon, to another’s dream to get in touch with their wild side and cuddle a monkey – we certainly have our work cut out.

This is why we are asking the local community to get involved and help make these dreams a reality. So please, have a look at the list, and get in touch if you think you can help.

The response from the local community has been amazing in helping us deliver many wishes already.
