PKAVS Adult Carers Hub took 22 cared for and their carers to enjoy a 3 night dinner, bed and breakfast break at Lovat Lodge in Nairn.
Five staff also attended the trip to drive and assist carers in their caring role. They enjoyed various day trips to Baxters, a shopping trip in Nairn, the Simpson Garden Centre and a drive around Loch Ness - the views were stunning and everyone had a fabulous time.
Our holiday was subsidised by successful funding applications and we are hoping to return to Nairn in October.
The was a vital hoilday for our service users and their families to have some repite and support within their caring role.
