Hungerford Care Home’s wild day out to Beale Park

Hungerford Care Home’s wild day out to Beale Park – Residents Elizabeth and Lillian accompanied by Magic Moments Club Co-ordinator Frances Small admire the geese

On the 17th September, Hungerford Care Home in Berkshire had a fantastic day out to Beale Park admiring the wildlife.

We looked around at all the animals there finding, meerkats, lemurs, otters, peacocks and turtles to name a few. It was great to see all these animals as well as some farm animals such as pigs, cows and goats. The residents also had a great time visiting the new attraction at Beale Park called ‘Treasured Toys,' an exhibition of toys and games from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. They had a great time reminiscing about the toys and games they used to play with when they were children!

Magic Moments Club Co-ordinator, Kanika said “It was magical to see the residents enjoying their time at Beale Park creating memories forever, looking at all the animals and birds, and on such a gorgeous day the sun was shining! The Treasured Toys exhibition re-kindled residents’ love for their forgotten toys!”

At Hungerford Care Home we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents. The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.

Hungerford Care Home is located in Hungerford Newtown, Berkshire and provides ​dementia carenursing carepalliative care and respite care.
