A group of residents from Trinity House Care Home set sail on an adventure this month as they embarked on the Seagull's Trust barge in Ratho. The excursion proved to be a delightful outing, filled with joyous moments and cherished memories.
The residents, accompanied by the activities team, expressed sheer delight at the opportunity to get out on the water. The day's adventure included a delightful sing-along, where residents and staff sang in harmony, enjoying the tranquility of the river and community spirit. A tasty packed lunch added to the day's pleasures.
One of the highlights of this memorable trip was when one of the gentlemen among the residents had the special honor of becoming the "skipper for the day." His moment at the helm brought a smile to all, as the residents took turns navigating the barge, making the experience even more unforgettable.
The trips on the Seagull's Trust barge have proven to be incredibly beneficial to the residents of Trinity House Care Home. The peaceful setting and gentle sway of the water provide an ideal backdrop for reminiscing, a cherished pastime for many residents.
The close relationship between Trinity House and the Seagull's Trust has been instrumental in facilitating these outings. The care home team, together with the Seagull's Trust, continuously strives to provide enriching experiences for the residents. These trips not only bring immense joy but also connect residents with the natural beauty of their local surroundings.
In a further development, Trinity House has increased its swimming club sessions to once a week. This initiative allows residents with an interest in swimming to enjoy regular swimming with the support of staff. For families interested in having their loved ones participate in this club, please do not hesitate to contact the activities team at Trinity House Care Home.
