Partnership with Cultural Services and Learning Team
Home Instead Senior Care Southampton have continued to provide the highest level of home care service possible to our Clients during this current pandemic. However, many of the community events and outings we would normally run have been cancelled or postponed due to the virus.
We had a discussion with the Southampton City, Cultural Services and Learning Team to explore the idea of organising special educational and stimulating videos for our Clients and the local community. Southampton City aspires to become an international city of culture and we are excited to work with the Cultural Services and Learning Team to further shape this ambition.
As part of their community outreach program we can announce we have partnered with the Southampton City, Cultural Services and Learning Team to bring weekly educational and entertainment videos of local attractions to Clients and the whole of Southampton during the coronavirus pandemic. The first set of videos are to organise a virtual tour of the Titanic, as well as the Tudor House and some other smaller videos.
We made sure to look at local attractions where our Clients would typically go and attractions that would interest people in the Southampton area, so we had to think creatively. The virtual history tours of the Titanic and Tudor House are perfect, as it allows the community, who may have already visited the attractions, to see them in a new light, as well as with a tour guide.
In addition to providing landmark location tours, we will also be creating videos to get people singing, doing arts and crafts and chair aerobics, to name a few.
We are hoping that these will provide additional support for our CAREGivers to watch these videos during their home care visits with clients, as well as anyone in the local community who is interested.
We are looking to partner with other community businesses or groups who can give tours or show the history of their building, so please get in touch if you want to work collaboratively.
Please watch, like, comment and share the videos to anyone you feel would benefit!
