With the COVID restrictions lifted, residents are able to get out and about again. With the help of our community we have been able to travel!
Residents’ travel log!
We braved the changeable weather and spent a wonderful morning at St Peter’s Garden Centre. This was made possible with the support of Worcester Wheels and their extremely helpful and caring team. Plus our wonderful volunteers Mick, Matt, Jane, Sarah, Heather and Sue and carer Lisa. Residents enjoyed a browse through the plants and gifts. It was an opportunity for some retail therapy and early Christmas shopping. Tea, coffee and delicious cake at the café rounded off the first successful trip of many.
There was travel too from the comfort of home. We armchair travelled to Mexico – the next stop in our series of holiday adventures. A very refined trip to start with, learning lots of interesting facts and enjoying delicious Mexican tortillas, dips and nibbles. Then there was some Mexican beers to be sampled. The afternoon became all the more amusing as residents dressed up in ponchos and sombreros! So much fun and laughter!
As the weather has turned more autumnal, we brought the gardening indoors, creating miniature gardens to brighten our home. There was a real sense of achievement and memories shared. Residents recalled making these as children for village shows and school projects.
We have a sewing club project underway, with residents still buoyed up from the tremendous Jubilee quilt they made. Watch this space! The National Art in Care Homes Day was a wonderful opportunity to showcase some of our residents work. From framed pebble art, to landscape paintings, collage, knitting, floristry and gardening. We ensure that residents are able to continue to pursue their hobbies and also try their hand at new things. Supporting them in living their best lives.
And with Halloween fast approaching, we had a visit from Tom, our local conservationist and Sarah a volunteer, who gave us a fascinating insight into the life of bats. Such beautiful creatures, and not as scary as people think!
