Outstanding care is what we would all wish for our loved ones and when they need care they are at their most vulnerable. Depresssion can so easily compound and exacerbate dementia symptoms because access to Dementia Adventure (dementiaadventure.co.uk/about/larry-gardiner) asked me to lead some workshop sessions with Care UK (careuk.com/tall-trees) at their Tall Trees care home in Colchester. The work programme was scheduled over three days, During day one I worked with the leadership team and staff to develop an out of doors activity which they would lead with support from Dementia Adventure. On day two Neil and Lucy joined the staff and residents on their activity at Maldon in Essex together with their children and some family member volunteers. On the third day I visited the care home again and met with some of the residents and I worked with managers and staff to extract the learning from this experience and to make plans for regular out of doors activities in the future.
