Activities at Four Hills Care Home

Our activity and lifestyle programme is arranged for all our residents to participate in and is updated regularly based on ideas from our residents group during our resident forum. Our Resident of the Day strategy ensures each person receives at least one day each month where the focus is all about them.

We have a monthly concert and to date this is appreciated and enjoyed by most residents. The Four Hills Taverns is open for business every Friday afternoon and is an area where residents and staff socialise, hold pub quizzes and partake in a little refreshment.

The team at Four Hills try hard to meet everyone's needs and encourage all residents and their families to join in the fun.

Life at Four Hills Care Home

Valentine's Day

Love was in the air at Fourhills this month, the whole home was decorated with hearts and flowers, on the day itself Fourhills hosted an afternoon tea for residents, their significant others and family members to join us, we all enjoyed getting tucked into all the delicious baking the residents had made for it. Then in the evening our head chef Paul pulled out all the stops and created a delicious romantic 3 course meal for our couples who live here together, we set the mood by decorating the room, having romantic music playing all washed down with a few glasses of bubbles.

Chinese New Year

Resident at Fourhills celebrating Chinese New Year and the year of ‘The Dragon’, we marked the day by decorating the home with traditional Chinese decorations, on the day itself we had a quiz themed around the history of China, we used You-Tube to take a stroll around the markets of China and saw all the fantastic light shows. Then in the evening our chef made a delicious Chinese themed meal which lots of the residents really enjoyed.

Wish You Were Here

This month at Fourhills we were treated to fantastic play from our visiting theatre group called ‘ Wish You Were Here’ telling the story of a Glasgow family going their annual holidays to Blackpool.

The show involved lots of comedy and our residents were splitting their sides with laughter. There was also lots of singing of some of our favourite Scottish songs. The residents would all love to see another one of the shows so we have one pre-booked for April to look forward to.

Valentine's virtual event

Across our homes we had a fantastic time joining, Kathryn Delve, Master Florist, for a Valentine’s-inspired live virtual flower arranging demonstration. Kathryn shared brilliant and creative ways to decorate our tables with beautiful flowers that are sure to make your heart swoon!

Those participating in this virtual event put their skills to the test and followed along with some amazing creations of their own.  Residents truly enjoyed the experience.
