Activities at our home
We understand that the people we support have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events are organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.
Life at Castle Care Village - Castle Rise
It’s been a rubbish year, so we’ve used our rubbish to bring some Christmas cheer!
Castle Rise residents, staff and the local community have been busy turning their rubbish into Christmas decorations to take part in the Hull Christmas Trees 4ever tree trail.
Over 80 locations around Hull have trees decorated, with the theme this year being: reduce, reuse and recycle. Trees will be decorated from 5th December to 27th December, so why not pop along to admire our work.
Our Divisional Winners
Congratulations to Mark Newcomb, who has been named as a Divisional Winner in the 2020 Barchester Care Awards. Mark is a finalist in the Maintenance Champion category and has been invited to attend a virtual awards ceremony on 8th October, where he will find out if he has won overall.
Also, well done to Laura Taylor, who has been named as a Divisional Winner in the Learner of the Year category.
The Christmas Spirit
We switched on our Christmas lights on 3rd December and were joined by Santa and his little elf.
Our residents and staff have loved spending lots of time in our gardens recently as the weather has been so great! We hope the fine weather continues for the rest of the summer so we can spend even more time in the garden.
Karaoke is always a popular event here at Castle Rise. Singers perform to a small but enthusiastic crowd, and all performances receive a warm round of applause and requests for more.
Castle Rise Bake-Off
Baking is a particular favourite of many residents here at Castle Rise; they really enjoy getting creative and, of course, having a taste test once everything's finished.
