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.

Football Fever

We made our bunting to show our ongoing support for the England football team, who are doing so well in the World Cup. We decorated flags and footballs and displayed them in the lounge. We are all looking forward to the upcoming games.

Football Fever

We were joined by the local school and the pupils had lots of fun talking to the residents. Everybody was able to design and colour their own football kit to celebrate the 2018 World Cup. The session was finished off with refreshments and chocolate biscuits. We look forward to the children returning in September after the long summer break.

Motoring Memories

We had a visit from Motoring Memories this afternoon, and the session was interactive from the very start. We were able to look at parts of cars, learn and talk about the history of the British motor industry and tell stories about our own experiences with automobiles. Residents had great fun blowing the horns and looking at the models and driving licences. We are looking forward to seeing them again in the future.
