Activities at our home

Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.

St Patrick's Day

To celebrate St Patrick's Day, we were visited by an Irish dancing group who showed off their best moves to residents. It was a great day and we hope to see them again next year.

Stars in Our Eyes

Every year, we host a 'Stars in Your Eyes' competition, where staff members get the opportunity to dress up and either sing or mime as their favourite singer or group.

Amy Campell was declared the winner with her rendition of 'The Wee Cock Sparra'.
