This week Caring Hands announced they will be introducing a new ‘Weekly Outings’ initiative for older people and will be working hard in 2019 to tackle loneliness within their local communities.

“We want to make sure everyone feels included and has something to look forward to. Weekly outings can benefit an older person’s overall wellbeing and significantly improve their quality of life which is most important to us at Caring Hands. A professional mini bus service will be in place to ensure everyone can attend.” – Greg Bamber, Managing Director of Caring Hands.

Maintaining relationships and spending time with others is essential to an older person’s emotional and mental wellbeing. By taking a trip to the local garden centre, going for lunch or afternoon tea can brighten up someones day or week for that matter!

Outings will be to local venues such as Barton Grange, Rufford Old Hall and Lowther Pavilion to ensure attendees feel safe and remain in familiar settings. 

Our new weekly outings initiative will also include trips to our local ‘Singing for the Brain’ group which is popular amongst our older friends.

Singing for the Brain is a service provided by Alzheimer’s Society which uses singing to bring people living with dementia together in a friendly and stimulating social environment. The sessions will include fun vocal warm ups and a sing-along to a wide variety of familiar and new songs.

It’s the perfect opportunity to express yourself, feel positive and make new friends. Our compassionate and experienced carers will be on hand to support you with anything you need.

We are looking forward to our first outing on Wednesday 23rd January – give us a call on 01772 747 386 if you would like to join in.
