We have regular outings in our minibus to different places of interest including local country parks, the Tramway museum, Matlock and a number of Ice cream parlours. When we are not out on trips we are busy baking, making different craft projects, using the sensory equipment and Pet Therapy. We have entertainers who come in and get our residents up and moving.
Activities are one of the most important aspects of a care home, so it is essential that our team are dedicated to ensuring that residents are entertained, and that life at Forest Care Home is fun and active. The activities at Forest Care Home are planned to be person centred and adapted to cater for everyone's abilities and all staff participate. For example one of our residents enjoys house work and everyday she assists the housekeepers to tidy around the unit.
Life at our home
Employee of the Month - April
Congratulations to Jackie Lidgett, who was named as our Employee of the Month for April. Well done!
Outing to Mansfield
Residents enjoyed an outing to Mansfield to watch a brass band and too enjoy the lovely sunshine. They all had a fabulous time and enjoyed some ice cream whilst out.
National Dance Day
In celebration of National Dance Day we held our very own version of 'Dance through the Decades’.
Happy Easter from everyone at Forest Care Centre!
In April we had Zoolab come in with some new animals that we haven’t met before.
Meet the Manager
In March, we held a Meet the Manager Day and welcomed Ami from Bluebird Entertainment. All the residents enjoyed singing and dancing to the Spring Show.
