Activities

Each home has an activities coordinator who organises a wide ranging programme of activities.

We are keen to tailor the programmes to the interests and hobbies of individual residents. Many activities take place in small groups, but we also arrange activities on a one to one basis to ensure everyone has the opportunity to take part in something which they find interesting and stimulating.

Our facebook page is full of photos highlighting a variety of activities from around the homes (scroll to the top of this page and click the ‘f’ in the top left hand corner)

We have in-house activities such as gardening clubs, crafts and exercise groups.

When the current Covid-19 restrcitions can be lifted we will resume welcoming a wide range of speakers and musicians into our homes to give talks, recitals and performances.

We have our own weekly 'bus service' to support residents to be as independent as possible, foster engagement with the local community and provide a wider range of stimulating activities by linking our homes together. We look forward to restarting this service when circumstances allow.

We are delighted to have strong links with local schools and colleges who regularly visit our homes, and currently many have kept in touch by sending letters and postcards to our residents.

We have a fleet of vehicles including a minibus, which facilitates our wide range of visits to local places of interest and even our annual holiday.

For those who stay in their bedroom, either by choice or due to ill health, we work to find things they enjoy on a one to one basis. This might be playing a board game or reading to them.

In normal circumstances families are welcome to be involved in as many of our activities as possible and we always welcome new suggestions and ideas.

“Wow.  The staff at this home go above and beyond what is expected of them, always having a smile and chat and the best bit, they do not rush the time they have with residents giving high-class care to all. Care is always at the forefront of what they do, from day trips to holidays ad daily activities. It’s a home from home. I would thoroughly recommend them.”
