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.

Birthday Celebrations

We celebrated Ivy’s birthday with her; she had her hair and nails done and indulged in her favourite cream cake, which was baked and presented to her, along with some nice, loud "hip hip hoorays"!

Ivy said she didn’t want a fuss, but had been feeling under the weather and was happy that everybody was around to celebrate her birthday with her, including her friends and family.

Colouring Competition

Cubbington School children came to visit and entered into our Children in Need Colouring Competition. Residents and children had fun chatting and colouring with some friendly competitive banter. They were able to discuss what Children in Need meant to them and how they were able to help children in the local area.

For the Love of Music

We had a great afternoon full of singing and laughter when Barry came to visit us here at Cubbington Mill. He entertained us with his singing and danced with his wife for us too. Residents enjoyed their turn on the microphone, singing their hearts out for all to hear.

It was cooking club today at Cubbington Mill. We had a chat earlier in the week and decided to bake some chocolate cupcakes. The residents had great fun mixing up the ingredients, chatting about who they would bake with at home, what their favourite type of cake is and much more.
