Complete with a ticket office, this simulator treats elderly residents to a first-class experience.
To make the whole experience even more lifelike, the care home has also built the cutest ticket office for its residents to buy their tickets. The rail trip seems very real to the residents, many of whom are disabled and are no longer able to ride a real train. Through empathy and understanding, the care home has identified the need for seniors to still feel they can get out into our beautiful wide world, with one couple already booking their 60th-wedding-anniversary getaway.
