Residents and team members at Sunrise of Frognal 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 Frognal will come together to celebrate and immerse the care home within each country’s culture.
Starting on 12th April in France, Sunrise of Frognal 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, John Cunningham, the General Manager of Sunrise of Frognal, said:
“We believe that every person deserves to live a life of purpose and self-worth, no matter what their age. And, as most of us won’t be able to go on holiday abroad this year, we at Sunrise of Frognal are looking forward to our own holidays with those we cherish most, our residents. We are all excited to be visiting new places virtually and enjoying the different lifestyle and cultures of countries most of us have never visited. All this from the comfort of our home. I hope that those thinking about their longer term future can see that far from being a staid lifestyle, Sunrise of Frognal will take you on a new journey with new experiences each and every day.”
