Here at connect we like our members to be involved in every part of our day, including decorating and furnishing the building. With this in mind we began thinking about including trips to IKEA as part of our social integration program. Whilst it is a lengthy round trip we started to take members around at first just to look and eventually spending full days wandering around picking things out and staying for lunch. This included decision making, queuing and being in a busy environment, and the effect was amazing, giving everyone a joint task to complete kept them focused on the task and not their anxieties. It has become a sought after activity that members can’t wait to do again and makes supermarket trips and trips into town much easier for them.
