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.
Life at Castle Care Village - Castle Keep
Day of the Dead
Residents celebrated the Mexican 'Day of the Dead' by enjoying nachos covered in cheese, salsa, guacamole and jalapenos, all whilst wearing sombreros.
Residents were assisted by the staff to create pumpkins for display within the home, and also enjoyed the Halloween snack trolley, which was taken through the home filled with ghoulish treats and drinks!
Due to COVID-19, the annual fair that comes to Hull at the start of October was cancelled for the first time in 75 years, therefore, our Activities Coordinators decided to bring the Hull Fair to residents.
Care Awards Celebration
Team members and residents celebrated Barchester's Care Awards recently. Kerry, a carer at the home, received a Divisional Award and a special certificate. It was a wonderful day, enjoyed by all.
At the Marina
We took a resident out to the local Hull Marina for some breakfast and a nice walk looking at the Spurn Lightship, which is docked in Marina.
Residents celebrated World Smoothie Day by taking part in making homemade smoothies out of of kiwis, apples, bananas, strawberries and melons!
