Outings & Excursions

We encourage our residents to continue doing what makes them happy while living with us at Bothwell Castle Care Home. Residents are given an abundance of opportunity to enjoy a new activity every day; whether residents wish to explore the home’s beautiful gardens, socialise with friends and family, or stretch their legs and explore Bothwell’s stunning conservation village, there really is something for everyone.

Our outings and excursions are planned with our residents in mind, to ensure we’re giving them exactly the kind of outlet they’re looking for; staying active and exploring new places is key to staying healthy, no matter how old you are.

Fun Outings For All

Whether residents want to focus on staying active or they wish to spend their days roaming the local area, we think that no two days should be the same, and want nothing more than to make every day different and exciting for our residents.

We have a dedicated team of Activity Coordinators who ensure that an active and social calendar is always planned; taking the time to get to know all of our residents to make sure that there’s days out that suit everyone. Come rain or shine, we place a big emphasis on taking our residents out into the local community, whether that be for woodland walks or shopping trips, and often invite loved ones to join in the fun too.
