Activities at our home

We understand that the people we support have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events are organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.

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

VE Day Celebrations

VE Day was a great chance for all staff and residents to get together to celebrate this remarkable occasion, we had singing, dancing, reminiscing and everybody was very upbeat making our ‘We’ll Meet Again’ video.


Chelsea Flower Show

Chelsea Flower show at Hawthorns was a great activity and all residents really enjoyed making flower displays, and naming all the flowers in a quiz we set.

Displayed by our lovely Manger Denise Findley, our balloon arch which took the puff out of us but have to say it looks amazing and very eye catching.

Balloon Ping Pong
