Collective Purchasing’s Very Own Day-Out List for Care Homes, Take a Look!
Going to a museum at any age is interesting – even more so if you are into the theme of it. A group outing to a museum on a mini bus would definitely brighten up a resident’s week. In the UK we are very lucky due to the high amount of museums there is on offer to visit. From The National Gallery, Natural History Museum & lots more in London, we also have a lot of local and rural museums to choose from.
There are three botanic gardens in the UK, The Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Ventnor Botanic Garden on the Isle of Wight and The University of Oxford Botanic Garden. Perfect for a sunny day out – but make sure you remember your sun cream! Being outside and having a change of scenery is vital for care home residents – whether they can walk about themselves or have a carer push them in their wheelchair, the fresh air and pretty flowers would 100% be the perfect treat.
We all love animals, and seeing them up close! Why not treat your residents to a day at the local zoo? Take a picnic and make a day of it – even the staff will have a great day too!
Back when our Parents and Grandparents were younger, Brighton was a popular holiday hot spot. Taking care home residents to Brighton for an outing will bring back loving memories for them – as well as creating new memories. Other hot spots are Blackpool and Bournemouth!
