Here at brighterkind’s La Haule Care Home in St. Brelade we are very lucky to be surrounded by beautiful countryside and we take every opportunity to get out and about into the fresh air for a little exercise.
The 22nd November was a lovely sunny winter’s day so we decided to wrap up warm and take a stroll along our local country lanes. As we walked past a field of our famous Jersey cows we were surprised but very delighted when they all came over to say hello!
Resident Doreen Berthou was enchanted by the friendly creatures and we took time out of our walk to get to know them a little better.
Magic Moments Club Coordinator Rion Moore said “The cows were as pleased to see us as we were them and loved being stroked - a very ‘moooving’ moment indeed!”
At La Haule 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.
