2009-2010 update
Saturday, 01 May 2010 08:46

2009 was filled with holidays, activities and outings of every description.

We provide distractive therapy and our activities change and develop all the time. KorCare clients voluntarily participate in the music, games or quizzes that happen regularly every week.

We often escort clients on cruise ship holidays and last year was no exception. Often we subsidise these holidays to make sure that all clients who want to go away - do go away to a destination of their choice. We have been carrying out these types of holidays for a number of years and we ensure that client passports, insurance and medical information are all in order prior to departure.

Our first trip was to Florida in May (6/5/09 - 20/5/09). Three female clients and one male client enjoyed two weeks in Florida, a welcome change of scenery with plenty of attractions to see and experience. Experienced KorCare staff members ensure that clients have complete security and can adapt to different surroundings. The sunshine is an added boost for everybody's morale.

The next two trips were Mediterranean cruises (16/6/09-23/6/09 & 7/7/09-13/7/09) - three clients on one trip and two on the second trip. It is not an easy task to find suitable holidays for all of our clients and we find the Cruise ships offer very different, compact, and secure surroundings. Our clients and can enjoy travel, and experience the destinations that they read about or see on television daily.

Next came a holiday in Rhodes (1/7/09- 9/7/09) which three clients suggested as their preferred destination. Greece has a character all of its own and our three female clients enjoyed plenty of sunshine whilst they visited the tourist sites. A return visit is on the cards for the very near future.

We match client characteristics and personalities for each trip and we had one further trip to Florida (4/10/09- 18/10/09) with a female client who was best suited to be away on a solo trip and a trip to Gibraltar (21//9/09-25/9/09) with a male client who had requested this holiday in particular. In all cases clients were escorted throughout the entire day and night, and a Senior member of staff was always available to monitor the proceedings.

We have three company vehicles to transport clients to local destinations and during September and a mild October we regularly travelled to the countryside as well as our coffee mornings and popular Ten Pin Bowling trips in a local alley in Torquay. Our latest vehicle a Renault Trafic 9 seater is ideal for small group outings.

Leading up to Christmas, the activities range from Restaurant outings, evening theatre trips, and many shopping outings with the clients who like to purchase presents or cards for their relatives and friends.

The lounge and communal areas are decorated, the furniture is rearranged and the home emanates the atmosphere of Christmas.
We have, over the last three years, invited friends and relatives for a pre-Christmas party at the home. Tables are set, we have a professional entertainer and good food is supplied. This function is well supported and provides activity which is genuinely appreciated by the clients and family members.

Just before Christmas, we normally have the local schoolchildren in to sing carols (63 students this year!), and then on Christmas Day, have a grand traditional turkey meal with all the trimmings, followed by presents for all. A real Christmas!

This part of the South West Coast is geared to catering for the holiday maker and there is always a show or two in the local theatres, or those in Torquay or Dawlish.
Christmas productions include Pantomimes and shows which appeal to most of the clients.

DSC07115.JPGWe intend to expand our outside activities this year and the most recent development to the home is our decking area shown in the photograph. This was previously an area covered by lawn with a plant border.  Everything was dug up, the decking and rail erected, and new plants planned and planted by a reg. horticulturalist. The area is in full view of the lounge and full view of any activity which we organise there. The clients will be consulted as to what we use the area for and whether we develop it further.
