Activities at Emily Jackson
Our activities team continues to offer a wide range of activities to both mentally and physically stimulate our residents. Our activities include one to one shopping, group outings in our minibus, and regularly attending our local church and bowling club. We also enjoy the entertainment from the musicians who come and visit us as well as our PAT dog. We have a range of activities so residents with all abilities and talents can join in activities and social gatherings. We encourage families and volunteers to share the joy with us by taking part in our social events as well.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies
Life at Emily Jackson House Care Home
We have bible study every Tuesday and residents really enjoy. It’s always relaxing morning for all of us; we are talking about what we are grateful for and what we can do better.
We had a chocolate fountain in August, and everyone loved it!
Arts & Crafts
For our virtual ballet event, we made ballerinas and their skirts.
Exercise in the Garden
Our residents absolutely love exercise sessions with music, especially when it’s held in the garden. After every exercise, refreshments are served.
Prayer is our conversation with God and we were so delightful to have local people from CRC Church Sevenoaks in our home. We prayed for staff and how we went through the pandemic. We served nice grazing plates, croissants, selection of fruit and selection of beverages.
We are so happy we have a Head Chef who is always helping us with baking activities. We baked cupcakes and we also decorated them. Baking is very popular in our home; everyone likes to participate in this activity.
