Wellbeing 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:

Massages and one to one pampering sessions with essential oils.
One to one 'talk time' woth supportive care team.
Meditation group classes (Namaste sessions).
Exercise three times a week.
Church service.
Cinema afternoons.

Bingo, board games, jigsaws.
Hairdressing once a fortnight offered.
Quizzes, word games, crosswords, word searches.
