Activities & Entertainments

Welfare improves through mental stimulation

We believe strongly in the importance of keeping minds and bodies as active as possible to assist a person's welfare and therefore provide a full range of stimulating activities and entertainment.

We have dedicated activities coordinators who spend time with each resident individually to understand their interests and capabilities.
The activities programme is then developed to ensure all residents have as much involvement as possible.

Every activity we engage in with our residents is selected for a variety of reasons. Activity is rewarding, it enhances daily lives and promotes the maintenance of skills, relationships, interests, and health.

We think carefully about the activities we engage in with our residents and the appropriateness of them.

Our activity programme includes:

Entertainers, music therapy, musical memories
Exercise (walking in the garden is encouraged)
Church service
Cooking class & Flower arranging
Creative art-based activities
Reminiscence, Sparkle newspapers and memory boxes
Bingo, board games, jigsaws
Sensory blankets, rummage boxes and gadget boards
