Activities at Ashby House
Our Activities Coordinators are constantly striving to enrich peoples lives here at Ashby House. We stimulate people both physically and mentally by organising fun filled, group and individual activities to promote the well-being of those we support.
There are regular outings in our very own minibus and visits from PAT dog therapists, church services, musicians, dancers, and local school children. We also have our very own 'Good Life' gardening club, where we grow our own produce, which we then use in our cooking club. We also host weekly bingo sessions which are proving very popular and are growing in numbers.
Life at our home
On Christmas day the residents, relatives and staff all had a wonderful day. With all the decorations that were up including our lovely trees, we were ready for Father Christmas to arrive, which he did, handing out presents to all our residents. The dining tables were set festively for our Christmas meals and a lovely dinner was enjoyed by all. Festive music, fun and laughter filled the home.
Here at Ashby House we are in full swing for Christmas. We have been busy with putting up our decorations, partying and now it is time to decorate some cards to give to our relatives. Our residents had a fun afternoon with the activities team making Christmas cards for their loved ones, they used stickers, glitter, paints and their creativity to design their own cards and write in their Christmas cards themselves. Everyone enjoyed reminiscing about past Christmases and time with their loved ones.
