A group of our Service Users from The Mews went on a day trip to visit the Sealife Centre in Birmingham. They took a tour around the whole of the centre and got to see a wide variety of sealife including:
- Bowmouth Guitar shark
- Native Ray
- Asian Short Clawed Otter
Of course they bought souvenirs in the gift shop and then opted to go for a spot of shopping at the Bullring Shopping Centre in the Birmingham City Centre. A lovely Italian lunch was enjoyed to close off the outing.
We encourage many different kinds of experiences for Service Users and welcome their own suggestions for things they are interested in. The purpose of this Sealife Centre visit was to provide a change of environment – for pure enjoyment and to strengthen relationships with each other and staff. The visit also enabled our Service Users to learn more about sea life (and perhaps peak their interests!)
We have made a note that the ladies wanted to spend more time shopping than the men so that can be changed for next time!
If you would like to learn more about the life in our Homes, and about the variety of experiences we offer our Service Users, please contact our Admissions and Referrals Team on 01604 791266 or Tweet them on @RPC_Residcare
