Back in July, Carricks and Oakdown teamed up to hold a sports day for residents and staff. The weather was great and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day! There were egg and spoon races, games of football, running races as well as wheelchair races. The residents enjoyed watching the Managing Director and the Home Manager team up for the 3-legged race!
As always, the residents of both homes have been enjoying some fun times out and making the most of the lovely weather. They have enjoyed trips to local cafés, the seaside, the Van Gogh Experience in Brighton, the Sealife Centre, the beach, rides in monster trucks, visiting National Trust properties, walks around the local area, sailing, Chessington World of Adventures and lots more!
Staff at both of our homes are great at seeking out interesting trips out for our residents! This winter they have had so much fun in Sussex and beyond.
I hope you have all enjoyed the amazing weather we experienced this summer. Everyone at Oakdown made the most of the sunshine.
