We believe it is important for
every resident to be offered a choice of activities to
suit their wishes and abilities. These help to keep
residents mobile and alert, encourage them to take an
interest in the people and the things happening around
them, and enable them to maintain their hobbies.
Residents are encouraged to join
in with activities and the choice is naturally up to
Because it’s important, we employ
a social activities coordinators who ensures that a range
of activities are organised either on a one-to-one basis
or as a group to encourage each resident to join in. A
‘Life Story’ booklet is completed with each resident who
wishes to record the important events in their life.
All major events throughout the
year such as Christmas, Easter, and other religious
festivals as well as VE Day are celebrated with parties
and in other ways.
Theatre and other cultural
outings, strawberry and cream tea afternoons, summer
fetes, games, discussions, music, hobbies, reading,
quizzes, and reminiscing are just a few of the
activities on offer. We organise a summer barbeque and a
Christmas party to which families are all invited.
