Activities at Canmore Lodge Care Home
Our Activities Coordinators are committed to organising a variety of events as well as offering tailored programmes to stimulate residents both mentally and physically. There are regular outings in the minibus to local places of interest, such as trips to the beach for ice cream, pub visits for a pint, and regular trips to Dobbies for tea and cakes. Georgie Girl, an old English sheep dog, also stops by the home on regular basis for pet therapy. Musical entertainment is a big hit with residents as well, so we book fan favourites to come and play at the home each month. At Canmore, relatives are always encouraged to join in on the fun too.

Life at Canmore Lodge Care Home
Valentine's virtual event
Across our homes we had a fantastic time joining, Kathryn Delve, Master Florist, for a Valentine’s-inspired live virtual flower arranging demonstration. Kathryn shared brilliant and creative ways to decorate our tables with beautiful flowers that are sure to make your heart swoon!
Those participating in this virtual event put their skills to the test and followed along with some amazing creations of their own. Residents truly enjoyed the experience.
Medical Detection Dogs
Across our services residents had a fantastic time during a special live virtual event, led by Emilia from Medical Detection Dogs. Emilia took us on a journey to discover how the organisation began training dogs to support people with complex health conditions, saving their lives on a daily basis.
Using their amazing sense of smell, these dogs can identify odour changes emitted prior an episode and alert the person to take preventative action.
We were introduced to the wonderful dogs and the science behind the sniff. It was a delightful experience for everyone, especially our canine-loving residents.
Big Quiz of the Year
All over the country our care homes and hospitals linked up for Barchester’s Big Quiz of the year!
Residents tested their knowledge with a variety of questions, from historical humdingers and musical musings to pictorial puzzlers and connective conundrums.
Everyone who participated had a fantastic time and enjoyed some friendly competition.
Mince Pie Making
Got to love a wee mince pie at Christmas time! Some of our residents had their hand at making a few of their own. Just some time to decorate and chat about all of the fun Christmas baking we used to do.
Bob Ross Painting
What a better way to carry on with our festive activities!
Today our residents painted some Christmas landscapes by the famous Bob Ross RIP
What a wonderful job they all did fun, laughter and off course a cuppa and cake
Thank you Bob Ross RIP for inspiring so many people with your wonderful paintings and the magic you put on canvas.
Deer Centre Park
What a treat!
Our residents at Canmore enjoyed a festive treat to the Deer Centre in Cupar to meet the reindeers.
There were so many different types of deer’s but our favourites were the Reindeers and the Fallow and Sikka deer’s.
We all enjoyed feeding the deer’s.
Time for a bit of lunch and some hot drinks.
To finish off we had a browse in the gift shop.
