Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Debbie Pardey & Liam Grist

We aim to promote interaction among residents so that their quality of life is not diminished. This is done through good quality, stimulating activities for each individual, taking into consideration personalities, abilities and backgrounds.

It is important to us to ensure that each resident feels significant and we will always try to alleviate feelings of isolation and depression where necessary.

Activities at Friston House

Our activity coordinators are constantly working to stimulate our residents both mentally and physically by organising group and individual activities for every one within the home to participate in. We have regular outings in our mini bus to various attractions within the area and in the summer we like to take our residents to the seaside, where they can enjoy fish and chips by the beach. Our activity programme is just one of the important aspects of the care home and we try our best to arrange the activities that our residents will enjoy.
