Brooklyn House visits Gorleston on Sea

It was all aboard for an outing to Gorleston On Sea for residents at Brooklyn House this week.

In tradition with the regular Brooklyn House trip residents were treated to fish and chips, a stroll on the promenade and rounded the day up with an ice cream before the journey back.

Resident Sybil Stevens said “It was wonderful outing. The fish and chips were delicious and I will sleep well after all the fresh air!”

Doing something different and changing our residents daily routine is a good way to stimulate the their minds, and also to do something fun and entertaining so as to make great lasting memories with them. Taking a trip out for a day is a great way to do this, going out somewhere with them can enhance the relationship shared between the residents and care team.

Outings out with our residents are great for alleviating stress as they look forward to the trip which in turn helps increase their mood, making them happier. Outings are great for increasing mental stimulation by introducing new surroundings and experiences, and the new smells, sounds and different foods we get to try all help our residents remember similar activities they have done in the past which helps with both emotional and mental health.

These in turn help us make new memories with our residents, providing us with more conversation and memories that can be shared with family and friends of our residents. These memories also help us form a bond with our residents which we can build on and if families join in with us it can help them continue to be a part of their loved ones life and new memories.
