Residents and team members at Sunrise of Winchester care home are setting sail on a 12-week journey visiting new countries each week from the comfort of their care home.
The ‘Around the World in 12 Weeks’ initiative will see the care home celebrating each country they visit by organising various activities and events. These are set to include language lessons, virtual tours of famous landmarks, enjoying local music, and experiencing each country’s culinary delights as prepared by the care home’s dining team. Every week will also culminate in a ‘Celebration Day’ where Sunrise of Winchester will come together to celebrate and immerse the care home within each country’s culture.
Starting on 12th April in France, Sunrise of Winchester will go on to visit countries such as Italy, South Africa, Mexico, China and India.
The extensive travel itinerary has been launched as part of Sunrise Senior Living UK’s #NewDawnNewDay campaign to encourage those who may be considering moving into a care home to take the step with a sense of reassurance in this new chapter of their lives.
The campaign, which comes as the country gradually emerges into a new dawn after COVID-19, also aims to reveal the meaningful lives led by care home residents and encapsulate their dreams and ambitions for the months ahead. Sunrise Senior Living UK also hopes that #NewDawnNewDay will inspire people to join the care sector to pursue rewarding and fulfilling careers.
Speaking of the campaign, Antoinette Roberts, the General Manager of Sunrise of Winchester, said:
“We believe that every person deserves to live a life of purpose and self-worth, no matter what their age. This year, we will all be enjoying our homes and the beauty that the UK has to offer. However, we can all dream and reminisce of far flung places, enjoy exquisite foods that evoke memories of a past holiday and soak up the ambiance of countries around the world. We are all looking forward to getting “around the world in 12 weeks” but from the safety of our home – Sunrise of Winchester.”
