Activities at Epsom Beaumont
At Epsom Beaumont, the daily activities always aim to be enjoyable for all. Our Activities Coordinator is constantly working to mentally and physically stimulate each resident and ensuring that our programme is define moulded to the wants and needs of those we support. We host weekly outings to many local coffee shops, and also some bigger trips to Brighton and the Brooklands Museum. Our outings tend to be a new and exciting experience for residents, but are sometimes repeated for those who could not make the trip the first time. The activity schedule changes weekly, but there are some regularities, such as our crossword and bar nights, where families are invited to join their loved ones for a social evening. Activities are one of the most important aspects of a care home and we are proud to say we have a dedicated Activities Coordinator who is supported by all of the care team to really make it successful. We have received excellent feedback from residents and relatives, which only makes our bond with them stronger.
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

The Golden Years
A big thanks to the Rah Rah Community Theatre Company, who transported a group of residents back to the golden years of the 1950s, with a performance of 'Rock Around The Clock', which was a musical comedy and love story, set in the '50s, containing all the popular tunes of that time.
The show has been devised to whisk audiences back to this memorable era, allowing them to participate and reminisce.
Epsom Beaumont had lots of fun celebrating Eid. Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.

American Independence Day
Happy 4th of July celebrations to all our American family, friends & colleagues.
We enjoyed celebrating this day of independence at Epsom Beaumont with a day of enjoying food, drinks and laughter with our residents, friends, relatives and team members.
Epsom Beaumont staff arranged a reminiscence virtual reality therapy session The residents’ likes and interests were taken into account before they were shown a VR film tailored to their personal interests.
The films are shot in 360 degrees to make the experience more immersive. Headsets are then placed over the residents’ eyes so they can glance in any direction to get a different view.
