The Glens care home residents have a day of retail therapy in neighbouring Montrose

A number of our residents really enjoy a trip to the shops and indulging in some retail therapy, so for our latest Oomph Wellness bus outing that’s exactly what they did.  Residents chose Montrose as their town of choice as it has a new Home Bargains they were keen to visit.  Susan loved the array of home-wear items and decided to purchase a few bits and bobs to add to her collection.  She stated ” it’s been one of the best days out I’ve had in a long time.”

There were smiles from ear to ear from all our residents who took the day trip and the ladies took a particular shine to their new Oomph bus driver Frank who chauffeured them around for the day.  And of course no shopping trip to Montrose would be complete without a visit to the beach front for an ice-cream!

Trips and visits out and about like this are very important to many of those in our care.  Residents enjoy the opportunity to socialise further afield and make connections out with the home, along with a change of scenery, engaging surroundings and some fresh air.  Roll on our next day trip!
