A trip to Winchester Christmas Market for Flowerdown Care Home

Resident Betty, Magic Moments Club Coordinator Katie and resident Doreen at Winchester Christmas Market

On 6th December, residents at brighterkind’s Flowerdown Care Home in Hampshire enjoyed a trip out to explore the delights of Winchester Christmas Market.

Doreen, Betty, Kitty and Pat did some Christmas shopping and were especially impressed with this year’s festive light displays.

Katie Ford, Magic Moments Club Coordinator said “The ladies loved being at the Christmas market again, something they used to do every year before they came to live with us. It’s really important to us to arrange trips out so residents can stay involved with their local community.”

At Flowerdown 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.

Flowerdown Care Home is located in Winchester, Hampshire, and provides nursing carepalliative care and respite care.
