Supported Living Chester Zoo Visit
Saturday, July 23rd, 2016 | Blog
Some of our supported living customers in Wolverhampton recently got the chance to visit Chester Zoo, Kare Plus staff work their hardest to give all of our supported living customers an excellent quality of life, so trips out like this are common!
The day began with Emma(Manager) and Sheila (Senior Care Worker), preparing for the day and travelling to pick up the customers. Even though it was a very early start (8am!), everyone was excited for the day ahead. Someone even brought some CD’s for the journey, so the group could listen to Elvis and Status Quo on their way to Chester! One of the customers who attended is wheelchair bound, she is non-verbal and expresses her feelings emotively. As she was getting into the specially fitted wheelchair accessible van, she was smiling and laughing, showing her excitement for the day ahead!
With sun cream and hats packed, they had a quick stop off to get some water as the day was already very warm - now the group was ready for the day ahead. As they arrived at Chester Zoo, food was the first thing on the agenda, alongside more sun cream of course – it was almost 30 degrees! One of our customers absolutely loves dinosaurs so he wanted to go see the snakes, and another just wanted to see everything she possibly could.
We love to see our supported living customers enjoying a day out, it shows just how committed and passionate the Kare Plus staff are. We look forward to seeing the next trip!
