New Care has been getting out and about on Oomph! trips. One recent trip for The Grand Care Centre scored a goal with residents, who went to Notts County Football Club.
The trip was intended to build friendships between the male resident attendees away from the home, and fulfil one resident’s wish of visiting the location.
The group went out for a meal first, before enjoying a personal guided tour by sporting legend Les Bradd, Notts County’s all time leading goal scorer!
A member of staff at The Grand Care Centre commented, “The residents said it was a great experience, as many had played football in their younger years and it brought back lovely memories.”
Another member of staff said, “[It was a] fantastic day out. All the residents had a fabulous day. It was the first time two of the residents had been inside a football ground, but they were very interested and would recommend to other residents.”
Oomph! are working in partnership with New Care to take residents out on regular minibus trips to a wide range of local destinations, including Woolaton Park, National memorial Arboretum, Blue Diamond Garden Centre and Stonebridge City Farm. You can find out more about the partnership here.
