At Somerset Care, we do all we can to support those in our care to live the life they choose.
All of our residents and customers are individuals, and they all have different goals and dreams. Whatever they want to achieve in life, we do all we can to help them.
Some ambitions are more adventurous than others, and a recent request from one of our residents at our Grovelands care home in Yeovil, certainly falls into that category!
Tere, who lives with Parkinson's disease and uses a wheelchair, decided that she wanted to set herself a new challenge.
Rather than seeing her mobility as a restriction, Tere saw it as an opportunity for adventure. She told her care team:
"I want to do things I haven't been able to do before."
Top of the wish list for Tere was a zip wire experience.
Spurred on by her fellow residents, the team at Grovelands arranged for Tere to fulfil her ambition, and booked her a zip wire experience in Cornwall.
