Activities at Cubbington Mill

Every day we run different activities throughout our home. The activities are designed and adapted to each individuals personal needs. The activities are designed to mentally and physically stimulate the people we care for and also to enhance their life skills and feelings of purpose and self-worth. The activities encourage interaction on a one to one basis, in small groups, in large groups and some are designed for the whole home including staff to be involved in.

We are registered with the National Activity Providers Association (NAPA) which ensures we are able to achieve and continually progress to enhance the quality of life for those we support in the home. We provide entertainers such as singers, musicians, magicians, puppeteers, poets and dancers. We also have regular exercise classes and arts and craft classes. Relatives and visitors will be able to see what me make in these classes on display around the home. We have regular trips out on the mini bus to visit garden centres, enjoy high tea, visit the butterfly farm and spend the day at the zoo with a picnic. We encourage the local community, schools, colleges and relatives to come and join us for activities, tea and cake and to visit to share their skills as much as possible. 

Staff from across the home are always willing to help and share their knowledge and skills across a whole range of activities we have had everything from carers preforming Bollywood style dancing to cooking classes from the chef. We feel activities are a vital part of the residents lives to ensure they are stimulated mentally and entertained.

Seated Exercise Session

We have great fun at our weekly seated exercise sessions with Mel. We sing along to all the old time favourites as well as exercising, flexing our joints and stretching our muscles. We really look forward to these sessions every week.

Creative Mojo

We tried out an art session with Creative Mojo again, and we all painted and decorated hearts using all kinds of materials, glitter, sequins and paint. All the hearts were then fastened onto the tree of hearts ready to be displayed in our home for all to see. We had a lovely time and are already looking forward to our next session.

Preparing for Baby Group

Residents gathered together the toys and games donated by the local community for our new baby and toddler group. The residents tested out the toys, cleaned them and disinfected them. The residents had great fun testing the toys and talking about what they had when they were younger.

Cinema Afternoon

After a busy Christmas period the residents decided they would like to have a cinema afternoon for New Year's Day. There were plenty of refreshments, and everybody settled in for an afternoon of Mama Mia, singing along to the ABBA songs and talking about past experiences at the flicks.
