Stephen’s skiing adventure

Caring Homes’ newly introduced ‘Living’ programme was initially developed as a structured way of exploring residents’ interests, however wild and wonderful.

Marchglen service user Stephen had never skied before and thought he would not be able to, but when he discovered recently that it was possible to ski in a seated position, he was eager to give it a try.

A session on the ski slope of Xscape Braehead was soon booked and he was placed in the safe hands of expert instructor Gordon. As it was his first time, Stephen was understandably nervous and knew he could pull out at any time, but after his first time down the slope he was raring to get back to the top and go again. He managed a total of seven times down the slope in the 30 minute session and enjoyed it so much that he is already looking into booking another session.

Marchglen Care Home is an innovative collection of four houses providing a range of specialist care and forming a unique community on the outskirts of Fishcross. The state of the art facility supports up to 36 people including those with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and acquired brain injuries.
