Ringwood Care Assistant jumps from 15,000ft to raise funds

6th June 2018

Care South’s St Ives House care home near Ringwood is celebrating the achievements of one of its Care Team Leaders Nadia Clark, who recently completed a skydive from 15,000 feet to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Society.

Nadia completed her skydive at Dunkeswell, in Devon. 15,000 feet is the highest skydive which can be completed without the need for additional oxygen. Passionate about dementia care, Nadia raised £430 with her challenge.

Nadia said: “I really enjoyed completing the skydive. I was nervous, but I loved every minute of it, no words can describe the experience! I wanted to raise as much money as I could for Alzheimer’s Society to help people and their families affected by dementia and to fund research into a much-needed cure. I have been working with Dementia patients for over ten years and have seen first hands the affect it can have on people’s lives.”

Beverley Lockhart, Home Manager at Care South’s St Ives House care home, added: “We are all so proud of Nadia. The residents and staff here at St Ives House were supporting her every step of the way. Everyone at the home loved hearing about her skydive.

“Nadia has a real interest in dementia, she is always looking at resources to help to further her learning and knowledge of the condition, which in turn helps our residents and colleagues here at St Ives House.”
