Residents at RMBI Care Co. Home Prince Edward Duke of Kent Court in Stisted, Essex have been treated to a safari around the home’s grounds.
To ensure residents were not missing out on the usual fun, sociable and stimulating excursions staff created a safari ride around the grounds, complete with a safari truck and wild animals to spot amongst the trees.
The Association of Friends of Prince Edward Duke of Kent Court donated a golf cart, which was redecorated as The Stisted Safari Shuttle.
Resident, Eileen Sims said: “It’s been a lot of fun going out in the safari truck to get some fresh air.”
Aggie McDonald, home manager said: “Our residents absolutely love going out in our new safari truck, so much so that we are introducing it into our weekly routine.
“As well as ensuring they get out in the fresh air, it has proved to be a powerful sensory experience, triggering happy memories and prompting lots of lively conversation.”
