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.

Zoo Lab come for a visit

Zoo lab came for a visit and brought with them a host of different animals. The residents enjoyed asking questions and finding out about each of the animals. We were able to have a hold of them which showed us that some of us are braver than other!!  The animals included, a snake, tortoise, giant snail, giant cockroach, tarantula and even a guinea pig which was everyone’s favourite.

Trip to Little Basing

Residents enjoyed a trip out in the minibus on a beautiful sunny day to Little Basing with a stop at Barton’s Mill to enjoy a cold drink in the beer garden. The ducks came up from the river to see what crumbs we had left from our crisps. One resident stated how this was the life and would happily have stayed all day.

An afternoon of cheese, biscuits and Pimms!

The great weather recently has meant we have spent a lot of time in the garden and on this particular afternoon we thought the best way to spend it would be to have lots of cheese, biscuits, and Pimms!
