That is why Cornwallis Care Services fully encourage their homes to provide regular meaningful excursions and days out, for their residents.

A trip to the seaside or to the countryside is a real treat for someone with a fading memory, making a change from the daily environment of the nursing home. Photographs taken during the trip provide something to talk about back at the home, bringing the memory back to life for the resident.

A day out can be a stimulating way of recharging the batteries for residents and staff alike.

Cowbridge Care Home organised a trip to Mevagissey for a small group of residents. They strolled in the sunshine, watched the boats in the harbour, relaxed with a cream tea and enjoyed fish and chips at the harbour side. Truly a day to remember!
