Activities & Entertainment

Our dedicated Activities Co-ordinators really get to know our residents, their interests, hobbies and their life stories. This knowledge helps planning and designing the activity and entertainment programme to make sure that activities not only interest but are meaningful and encourage social interaction.

Our residents are free to join in but some just prefer to watch the fun. We aim for an unstructured approach towards daily leisure, tasks and normal life supported by our programme.

Leisure activities such as gardening and baking are encouraged and accompanied visits to the shops or helping with errands are always popular. Gentle exercise to music, joining in a Wii exercise game, reminiscence, arts and crafts and bingo are all part of our programme designed to ensure that there is always something for everyone to enjoy.

With regular entertainers, live music provides the opportunity to dance or have a traditional sing-a-long. We encourage family and friends to come along too, so nobody has to miss out.

When the weather is fine, the outdoor areas are used as much as possible. Our residents thoroughly enjoy the warm sunshine and lovely gardens with a cup of tea and biscuits.
