At every stage in life, maintaining your physical and mental health is important. A dedicated Activities Co-ordinator creates a daily activity program, in conjunction with residents requests and personal areas of interest. These can be scheduled throughout the day to encourage participation for all and to create a fun family environment.
Independent activity, hobbies and day-to-day tasks can boost an individuals’ self-confidence and as part of our person-centered care, we adapt this each individual. Our homes take pride in arranging special activities including birthdays or special milestones, religious celebrations, national days of celebration and events.
The local communities support us in maintaining an active healthy lifestyle within each home and we develop relationships to promote socialising, mobility, interaction, independence and self-confidence.
Activities can be both indoors and outdoors and our patio areas and gardens are utilised as much as possible. We offer local and national day trips where possible for residents to enjoy within the community.
There are several options, including part and fully funded care. Prospective residents are advised to read our funding guide to understand the asset threshold requirements – this determines how much you are expected to pay.
