Creekstone Care Centre, a sister home to Gemstone, works in partnership with Cycling Without Age – North Shore Chapter to take Residents out for bike ride in that community. Recreation staff have been trained as pilots to operate the trishaw, which can hold up to 2 passengers, and travel along the great multi-use trails and low traffic roads in the area. The program supports Residents to get out and enjoy fresh air and scenery from the front seat of a trishaw.
It’s really no surprise that Residents are keen to go for a ride! One passenger said, “I so love it! It looks like a parade and I am waving to people and they wave back to me.” Another said, “I love this so much! You just made my day.” Family members have also embraced the program and share glad they are for Creekstone to offer this to Residents. Family share support by saying, “What fun! You guys are the best!”
