Sledging at a snowdome, orienteering in Sherwood Forest and watching a festive panto are just some of the winter activities enjoyed by the individuals we have the privilege to support at Home From Home Care.
With snow yet to fall this year, some of the individuals decided to hunt some out for themselves with a trip to a snow dome. This provided a great sensory experience, with heaps of frosty fun including sledging in giant rubber rings.
Walking is a popular past time enjoyed by many of the individuals we support, with some choosing to walk several miles at a time around their neighbourhood and further afield. A recent orienteering activity gave the individuals the opportunity to travel to and explore new surroundings while enjoying a shared interest together. The beautiful Sherwood Forest also presented an opportunity to try new skills like map reading and leadership while learning about the history of the area.
And, who wouldn’t want to visit the Panto? Beauty and the Beast was the choice here at HFHC. There was much laughter and engagement throughout the performance. Other recent outings have included a trip to a football match, an afternoon at the iconic Kinema in the Woods at Woodhall Spa, a leisurely walk to feed some horses and plenty of meals out. As the popular song goes… ‘the cold never bothered us anyway’!
