Ideas for Days out in Hampshire for the Elderly

With thanks to Access Care

Who provide peace of mind for the whole family by arranging the finest carers to live with your loved ones in their own home

The stunning Exbury Gardens hosts a collection of landscaped woodland, a huge range of flowers and a Steam railway, all set on a beautiful riverbank. A sea of colour provided by seasonal plants and flowers makes it the perfect memorable day out.

What’s particularly great is that the Zoo has really put some thought into considering different needs, creating viewpoints for those in a wheelchair, providing sign language video narration, plus carers go free if assisting an adult with accessibility needs.
