Residents from Heywood Court Care Home in Heywood enjoyed a trip on a Par Bold Barge a couple of weeks ago.
Gillian, Personal Activities Leader, said: “I booked this trip for the residents as it’s a full day out for them, it’s a total change of environment and it doesn’t matter what the weather is as the views are stunning. The residents love floating along the canal with peace and tranquillity without a care in the world.”
Resident Martin said: “It’s just so peaceful being sat watching the nature of the world, not listening to cars or main roads, it’s like we are in a different world for the day without bothering what’s going on in the world. Then we get back home and our tea is on the table, and I slept like a baby.”
Melissa Johnson, Home Manager, said: “Providing special experiences like this one is part and parcel of what we do here at Heywood Court. By making a difference to our residents’ wellbeing it means they’re happier here. Plus care home life needn’t be dull, where’s the fun in that?”
