The Cedars Care Home take a trip to The New Forest

The beautiful New Forest in autumn

Residents at The Cedars Care Home in Salisbury enjoyed a trip out to The New Forest and historic town of Lymington on 30th October.

We were lucky that the weather was bright and sunny and enjoyed seeing horses, donkeys, sheep, cows and of course the region’s native ponies. After exploring the beautiful surroundings, we visited Carlo’s ice cream parlour for tea, cake and lots of ice cream!

Emma Petley, Magic Moments Club Coordinator said “It was lovely to see our residents enjoying their day out. The New Forest is especially beautiful in the autumn, and we all wanted to take one of the donkeys home with us!”

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.
