Great emphasis is placed on meaningful, daily life tasks which stimulate the mind and memory. The uniqueness of our residents life history and interests are central to our activities program. Through residents meetings and day to day interactions our residents influence what is on offer. Having said that, there are always a few old favourites that are never off the table … Bingo anyone!
Ensuring our residents remain involved in the life of their local community helps them to remain independent and active. That is why we maintain excellent ties with charities such as Age Concern, Alzheimer’s Society, local schools, religious organisations and with outside entertainment groups. This allows our residents to spend time interacting with a variety of different people.
