On 15th November, The Cedars Care Home in Salisbury enjoyed a day out in the beautiful village of Beaulieu, to Fairweather Garden Centre.
We are piloting the Oomph! Out and About service, so that homes can arrange exciting excursions for residents to go further afield. This is part of our Fresh Air strategy, which aims to get everybody outside and out into the community as much as possible, as this can really lift the spirits!
At the garden centre, residents chose flowers and bulbs to go in our garden as we love to have their say in what is planted! We also looked at the Christmas decorations to give us all inspiration for how to decorate the home this year. To round off the day, we enjoyed tea, coffee and chocolate cake in the café.
We are now all feeling seasonal and ready for the festivities to begin!
Emma, Magic Moments Club Co-ordinator said, “Everyone had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoy themselves, it was lovely to watch everyone who went having fun and laughing!”
At The Cedars 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.
