Day to Day Activities
Through our Activities Co-ordinator, the Nursing Home provides a wide range of daily therapeutic and leisure activities. Favourites include arts and crafts, bingo, reading and poetry groups. Outings are arranged to local beauty spots, gardens, theatres, shopping trips, and sometimes a drive out for a cup of tea and cake. All residents who have a special interest or hobby are encouraged and, if practicable, facilitated to enable them to continue. From time to time we provide special entertainment from external organisations and clothes shows. Our library contains a varied selection of books including large print and talking books. Newspapers and magazines can also be delivered at extra cost.
Our Activities Co-ordinator also spends time with residents on an individual basis reading newspapers to them and helping with their post. Each month a social calendar is delivered to each resident with a programme of activities and space to enable personal additions to be included such as hospital visits or family occasions.
Talk To Us
On behalf of my dad and my husband, I would like to express our thanks for the care shown to mum and us during her two and a half years in the home.
