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.
We use a combination of the activities coordinators and visiting entertainers
to facilitate the sessions that take place most days.
Examples of activities and entertainment include:
Giant Scrabble games
Visiting musicians including organists, accordion players and singers
Children's choirs at Christmas
Seat based exercise programmes
Animal therapy including dogs and falconry
Newgrange has completed installation of a state of the art Cinema Room which includes a 144 inch screen, high quality surround sound and black out blinds. We will be providing regular film showings and other great entertainment for our residents and their families. Major televised events can also be shown.
