Activities at Cepen Lodge Care 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.

Cepen Lodge Sports Day!

GET BARCHESTER MOVING! What a fantastic afternoon we have had with students from Hardenhuish School with our very own Sports Day! This week is all about moving as we fundraise for The Barchester Charity Foundation, and today we went head to head to compete against the students in egg & spoon, space hopper, relay, three legged and hula hoop races as well as a BBQ and ice creams all round! We all had so much fun and the residents loved interacting with the students, who were brilliant at chatting and listening to stories from the past. Thankyou to all those who have donated and sponsored us.

Trip to The Rowdy Cow

This afternoon we took more of our lovely residents out in our minibus. This time we visited The Rowdy Cow in Rowde where we sampled their homemade ice creams which we all agreed were delicious. While some of our residents stayed to have a chat the rest of us visited the animals. Everyone had a great time, staff included!


Dementia café with Wiltshire Police

We had a lovely visit from PCSO Cunningham and PCSO Staples today to launch our first Dementia Cafe session and to advise about the Herbert Protocol and dementia wristbands! Whilst there they got to meet one of our residents, who served as a PC for Wiltshire Police from 1965 until 1990, he was PC 576 Jennings and policed in Chippenham from 1966-1968. This turned into a fabulous reminiscence session, and Dave had a great morning! We will release further information on our next dementia cafe shortly, keep your eyes peeled! Chippenham Police will be joining us again too to discuss this important subject and share advice and support.

Granting wishes

Making wishes come true! We asked Stan if he could wish for anything, what would it be? His answer: a romantic meal with his wife. Our chef prepared a special 3 course meal for Stan and his wife, and they had a private dining experience together. Stan was so grateful and they both had a wonderful evening together. Tailoring our services to individuals needs doesn't just include their care, our residents wellbeing and understanding what is important to them is a priority for us. Our team will go above and beyond to support our residents.
