Whatever the weather our bus still takes our residents and daycare clients out from each home two to three times every week. In total that's been over 4000 bus trips over the past seven years!
This month we have had simple trips to a local pub or cafe for a pint or tea and cake, we have also had more planned excursions like taking a group of residents ten pin bowling at the bowling alley.
We have dogs that live at the homes, so residents have the opportunity to walk them in the local parks and on the sea front.
We also take residents on one to one trips, for example, at Whitebriars the residents had an activity of 'indoor gardening'. One of the residents went with the member of staff shopping for all the items that were needed at the garden centre.
Very often if a member of the team needs to pop out to the supermarket or on another errand, a resident or day care client will accompany them if they wish too. Everyone likes a change of scenery.
