Now that Spring is here, we’re really enjoying getting out and about as much as possible. Some of our service users have been on holiday to Devon, or to West Midlands Safari Park. Closer to home, there have been fishing trips, shopping trips, cinema trips, canal-side walks and a visit to Sywell Aerodrome.

Supported home visits, holidays and a range of activities are all part of an individual’s care plan. Our aim is to empower each individual within our homes to live a fulfilling life. This may include starting a new hobby or continuing one. We find this important for quality of life and maximising rehabilitation.

Many activities involve groups of service users and staff. We support service users to choose what they want to do, where they would like to go and who they would like to go with. This helps them to feel part of their community and to further develop their cognitive, communication and social skills.

Music and dancing

In one of our services for adults with acquired brain injury, we threw a Jamaican themed all day party! With a visit from Darren at D & P Music Ltd, the whole house was engaged – from listening to the music and feeling the beat, playing drums along with Darren to a room full of dancing!

At Richardson Care we know the importance of music following a brain injury and how music can play a positive role in rehabilitation, as it can help with social skills and cognitive functioning as well as bringing joy and improving mood.

Our ethos has always been to treat each person as an individual, with dignity and respect and to empower them to feel part of their community. Read more about our values
