A Day of Fun in Stockport: Bowling, Lunch, and Laughter!

At ivolve, we’re passionate about delivering care and support through our Strive Model. Strive is the ivolve way—infusing every interaction with energy, passion, and positivity to make each day an opportunity to thrive. Today, we exemplified this approach during our delightful outing to Stockport, where we combined active support, total communication, and health and wellbeing in a day filled with joy and friendship.

Our day began at the Cinema, where we took part in a game of bowling. The people we support showcased their competitive spirits, each determined to excel. *Callum emerged victorious with an impressive score of 100 points, which he was incredibly proud of. This activity highlighted our commitment to active support, encouraging busy, happy lives with engaging activities.

Following our bowling fun, we took a leisurely walk around Stockport. This gave us the chance to explore the town and being part of our community. The stroll was a wonderful way to incorporate physical activity into our day, promoting health and wellbeing.

For a lunchtime treat, we headed to McDonald’s, where everyone had the opportunity to choose their favourite items from the menu. This is a great example of our total communication approach, ensuring that people are involved in their choices and decisions. Even something as simple as choosing your order for lunch can make a big difference to somebody’s day. The resulting long list of orders was a testament to the fun everyone had in making their selections! 😂

Back at Phoenix House, *Henry summed up the day perfectly, exclaiming, “I’ve had the best day ever, I want to go again soon!” This feedback reflects our approach, creating safe and empowering spaces that respond to individual needs and foster resilience.

Our Strive Model of Support represents our commitment to a dynamic, person-centered approach. By combining larger planned activities with everyday goals, we support existing interests and inspire new ones, always tailoring our support to meet unique needs and aspirations.

Why Strive Matters:

Strive is about providing a positive, preventative approach to care and support. By being proactive, we reduce the need for reactive interventions, resulting in:

Less tension, reduced stress, and fewer worries.

Reduced need for restraint and fewer injuries.

Increased energy, positivity, and a nurturing environment.

More stable placements.

This comprehensive approach sets us apart in the specialist care sector, positioning iVolve as the leading provider of support. Today’s outing to Stockport is a shining example of how we put Strive into practice, making every day an opportunity to thrive.

Stay tuned for more adventures from the ivolve Care team as we continue to embrace the Strive way!
