Our team here at Ivybank House Care Home weren’t monkeying around when our residents made a Wishing Wells request to visit Longleat Safari Park.
Many residents had fond memories of visiting the safari park with their family and wished to go again. We had an action packed day, starting with a boat trip where we spotted sea lions and hippos!
Resident Eileen said: “I used to come quite a bit over the years and it's great I’m still able to come here.”
Next we had a wander around the park to see all the animals and a highlight of the day was feeding lorikeets.
We ended our fun day out by driving around the safari park, which residents loved as we could see the animals up close. We joked that the monkeys thought our van was their playground!
Resident Kay said: “It was like being on holiday and so lovely to see all the animals so close!”
Everyone couldn’t stop smiling all day and our residents asked to go again soon.
Magic Moments Coordinator, Sue said: “It was so lovely to see our residents' faces, taking it all in and remembering so many lovely times here.”
