Our residents are encouraged to be independent and enjoy the freedom of organising their own social events. We have dedicated social activity co-ordinators to support our residents and to discover any new interests.
A variety of events are organised by staff and everyone is encouraged to join in. Indoor activities like bingo, dominoes, flower arranging, birthday parties, pantomime, making light crafts and shopping trips, although other suggestions are always looked upon positively. An area in the garden is also provided for any resident wishing to pursue gardening.
A combination of group and individual activities are undertaken regularly by the activities coordinators in the Home.
Outdoor activities during the summer months include several outings to such local venues such as pubs/bars, boat trips to the canal, cream teas, barbecues etc.
In addition to the above, we celebrate many calendar events throughout the year, not only Christmas, New Year, Halloween and Easter, but also some of the long forgotten ones such as May Day – Crowning of the May Queen & May Pole, St. George’s and St David’s Day and a host of other events – all of which we regard as opportunities or excuses to organise a little extra with treats in store.
