Greater Manchester care home Residents take a trip to Stamford ParkToday Residents from the Beeches residential care home, in Dukinfield, took their first trip out of the home in over 18 months! 

Residents enjoyed a trip to the local park for some fresh air and some sort of normality.

Residents Christine, Kath and Susan, all pictured, enjoyed the trip to Stamford park. 

They fed the ducks, enjoyed a walk looking at the flowers, and indulged in a delicious hot drink and cake while watching a game of boules. 

Residents and Colleagues enjoyed chatting to people passing by and sharing memories of bringing their children to the park.   

Susan remarked, “It’s been so nice to be out, I have fond memories of Stamford and bringing my family here.”

Fellow Resident Kath commented, “I have really enjoyed myself. It’s been lovely coming out.”

Likewise, Christine had similar views, “I have enjoyed being out in the fresh air, it makes such a difference and we have really had a good chat.”

Wellbeing Coordinator, Sade, described the day, “I was so happy to be able to take the Residents out today for the first time in ages! A trip to the local park was lovely and the memories we all shared about us all coming to this park. Seeing the ladies smiling and waving at people really made the day!”
