On 8th October, Ivybank House Care Home in Bath had some special visitors from Zoolab.
They brought along many different animals for the residents to see, including snakes, rats and a centipede! Zoolab introduce each creature and explain all about the animal, where they come from and what they like to eat. Then residents get a chance to be up close to nature and hold the animals, almost everyone was brave enough to have a cuddle!
Magic Moments Club Co-ordinator Sue James said, “We all had a great time and enjoyed the animals!”
At Ivybank House 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.
