Outings

We organise outings with Sammy Community Transport throughout the summer months to destinations chosen by the residents at their meetings. A favourite is a mystery trip, with cream tea or ice cream by the beach.

Transport

We usually arrange transport for outpatients appointments via the resident’s GP, relatives, or voluntary services. Should transport not be provided for free by NHS, the Home will ensure that Residents can attend their appointments. We use a number of local wheelchair taxi services for which the resident is responsible for settling their accounts should family be unavailable to accompany residents, a member of staff is available at a cost of £10 per hour.

Visiting

Visitors are asked to visit between 10 am and 7pm and are usually offered a ‘cuppa’. We try to remember, but do ask. Please try to avoid meal times.
