Touching the Past at Glenmoor House

At Avery Healthcare we are only too aware of the restorative power of collective reminiscing, across our care homes there resides an unbelievable archive of shared memories; reflections on past times that reach out across the generations enriching us and binding us together.

At Avery we see this kind of work as a privilege and relish the opportunity to explore our collective pasts and celebrate our shared experiences as one through organised sessions.

Facilitating this particular project was Azma Dar, a local writer who helped bring to life the stories of our Glenmoor House residents. Focusing on our residents experiences of life on the home front during WW2, the work was organised by Made in Corby, an Arts Council funded initiative aimed at exploring local history.

Read for yourself some amazing tales including a visit from Adolf Hitler himself for one of our ‘lucky’ residents.

We neglect the past at our cost and across all Avery homes we support this celebration of the past, bringing it into the present for us all to enjoy and reflect upon.
