How We Support Clients to Stay Connected Locally at Home Instead Poole

Discover how Home Instead Poole’s Care Professionals support older adults to engage in enjoyable local activities and maintain independence within the community.

At Home Instead Poole, our Care Professionals are passionate about more than just day-to-day assistance; they’re committed to enriching the lives of older adults through companionship and engagement in the local community. Our beautiful local surroundings offer so many opportunities to get out and about, helping clients maintain independence and joy in their golden years.

From a scenic drive in the New Forest or to the local beaches or a ferry trip towards Swanage, there’s nothing quite like enjoying the familiar beauty spots of our local area with our clients. These outings are more than just an excursion; they’re a breath of fresh air for many older adults, offering a sense of freedom and often the chance to reminisce and make new memories.

Tea gardens are a favourite with clients and Care Professionals. Pair a gentle walk with the simple pleasure of a visit to a local tea garden, and you have a perfect outing. For those who are able and keen on a bit of friendly competition, how about a round of crazy golf? It’s not only fun but a wonderful way to stimulate memories and encourage gentle exercise all under the gentle guidance of our Care Professionals. Many of our outings align with local events, we sponsor the local bowls club and often bring along our clients who can be spectators, or join in the events, engaging with the others and keeping active.

Tea time with others

We also have to mention the weekly highlight for one of our clients – the afternoon tea dance. Our Care Professional ensures that he can go, and it’s a lovely time for music, movement, and socialising with peers, many of whom he has known for years. It’s a great way to build on the essence of companionship, allowing older adults to connect with their generation and with their Care Professional.

A trip to one of the local theatres in Christchurch for a performance is a wonderful treat. Whether it’s a shared interest in a certain play, or a celebration of a birthday, this can offer both entertainment and something to look forward to, with a sense of occasion.

The National Trust properties around us provide another space for a leisurely stroll followed by afternoon tea. With many offering accessible paths for those with less mobility, these historic settings enable older adults to enjoy the outdoors and connect with the local heritage.

Our commitment at Home Instead Poole goes far beyond care—it’s about empowering older adults to continue enjoying the things they love. By fostering strong, trusting relationships, our Care Professionals strive to ensure that each person lives their ‘normal’ life as much as possible, surrounded by care and companionship.
