JUNGLE CAMP EXPERIENCE FOR GOLDCREST HOUSE IS A HIT

Jungle camp experience for Goldcrest House is a hit as service users get into the spirit of the hit programme ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here’.

JUNGLE CAMP EXPERIENCE FOR GOLDCREST HOUSE IS A HIT

Embracing the Australian based action packed trials and tribulations of 10 celebrities, service users at Goldcrest House were keen to experience what it might feel like to be part of the jungle celebrity camp.

Making it happen, but not a trip to Australia, service users were treated to a trip to Madame Tussauds in Blackpool to see first-hand the life-like wax work characters of Ant and Dec, and pose for photos in their very own cockroach filled Bush Tucker Trial.

Ralph Parish, registered manager at Goldcrest House says: “As part of our person-centred activity plans we hold a monthly consultation with service users called, ‘You said we did’. The consultation encourages open communication about how they would like to engage and participate with the wider community and their friends. I’m a Celebrity is a big hit here within the house, and even though we couldn’t get a trip to Australia organized, we could certainly make a much more local trip to ensure the people we support experience the hit show first-hand.”

GOLDCREST CREATE A SOOTHING ENVIRONMENT

Goldcrest house create a soothing environment with the development of a very special multi-sensory room to create a haven where service users can relax.

GOLDCREST CREATE A SOOTHING ENVIRONMENTThe specially designed room offers a multi-sensory experience with soothing lighting, sounds and textures proven to ease anxiety, encourage communication, and generally stimulate the senses.

Ralph Parish, manager at Goldcrest says: “The new room is a place where any individual at Goldcrest House, service user or staff, can go and relax. It shuts out the noise or stimulus from everyday activities within their environment, and replaces it with an experience of lighting and music that can be modified to suit their needs. It really is a nice place to go to get away from it all.

“Some of our service users go to have fun with the lighting, others go to listen to music, it can be an exciting place or a relaxing place, but importantly it’s there for each and every individual to use as they wish.”
