Care home residents to enjoy trips out in new minibus


Akari Care-care industry newsSeale Pastures House care home, in Acresford, Swadlincote, has made a significant investment that will further enhance the lives of its residents.


The home, which is operated by Akari Care, has taken delivery of a new minibus that will allow its residents to go on more day trips and visit some of the local sites and scenery.


Previously, staff and residents relied on using one of the local coach firms but cost and availability became an issue, restricting the number of trips out.


The purchase of the minibus comes on the back of a refurbishment at the home, which included the creation of a hairdressing salon, coffee shop and extensions of the conservatory and lounge areas.


Diane Leary, Manager at Seale Pastures House, said: “At Seale Pastures House we are always looking at ways to provide our residents with further enjoyable activities. Day trip opportunities have been restricted because of availability issues with some of the town’s coach operators, but this is no longer an issue, which is excellent news for the home.


“The minibus looks fantastic and the residents are excited to take advantage of it and visit some of the town’s attractions and venues.”


Based on Burton Road, Seale Pastures House care home specialises in residential care for up to 40 elderly residents
