Residents are encouraged to join in with activities whether in a group or one-to-one, although as a former resident said ‘this is a rest Home and I intend to rest!’ The choice is given to each individual. We employ a full-time Social Activities Coordinator who ensures that a range of activities are organised either on a one-to-one basis or as a group to encourage each resident to join in. A ‘Getting to Know Me’ document is completed with each resident when they come in to the home to better understand their preferences.
Theatre and other cultural outings, games, discussions, music, hobbies, reading, singing, quizzes and reminiscing are just a few of the activities on offer. The Activities Planner is led by the residents. All major events throughout the year such as Christmas, Easter, Diwali and VE Day are celebrated with parties and in other ways.
