Activities at Dudwell St Mary

Our activity coordinator provides our home with a fun-packed weekly programme to engage all residents. Past activities include bread making, pottery, knitting, and card making. Not only do we run regular exercise programmes for the residents but we also have our regular entertainers come in to entertain our residents and their families. The activity coordinator visits residents on a one-to-one basis, for a chat, manicure and hand massage. The activity co-ordinator said "Residents love the one-to-ones and especially enjoy the manicure and hand massage, as not only is it stimulating but it boosts their confidence and pride in their appearance.''

Motivation with Glynis

Motivation with Glynis is split up into four sections: the first section of her one hour session is a general knowledge quiz, then we play some seated ball games, next there's singing and finally some armchair exercises.

This range of activities allows residents to develop their hand-eye coordination, strength, stamina, memory, general knowledge, musical memory and social interaction skills. Most importantly, though: it is lots of fun!
