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.

Cooking Club

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. The residents individually decorated their cakes and enjoyed eating them with a cup of tea.

Flower Arranging

We had a go at flower arranging recently. The residents requested flowers in pink, purple and coral. We chatted about the beautiful garden at Cubbington Mill and created our own flower arrangements to display around the home for other residents and visitors to see. We worked so hard, so treated ourselves to choc ices and ice lollies to round off the day.

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.
