Activities at our home

Activities, hobbies and interests make up the most important part of our days and who we are as people. We provide a varied activities programme that reflects the interests and capabilities of all the individuals we support. All of the group and individual activities are designed to not only mentally and physically stimulate the people we care for, but to enhance their life skills and feelings of purpose and self-worth. We achieve this through a constantly updated activities programme and one-to-one sessions with residents that are tailored to suit individuals needs. We also offer a range of outings in our mini-bus.

Caroline Evans

Activities Co ordinator

Hi there I’m Caroline Evans and I’ve been at Hethersett Hall for 7 years now and been in the care sector for 13 years and believed it was time for a change in my career at Barchester,

I’m extremely motivated for my new role as activities coordinator. I hope I will bring joy and fun to everyone’s daily lives. I am a highly active and bubbly person. Looking after other people has always been my priority and I will do my best every day to make sure everyone is happy, safe and smiling.

I look forward to meeting you and hope you will all join in the events and activities that I will bring to Hethersett Hall.

Visits from our little friends

At Hethersett on a Friday we have mums and dads who bring their children along for a heartfelt session with the residents, we have been building this group back up and now it’s such a success, the residents look forward to Fridays they get to have cuddles play games and eat treats together. The smiles on the residents faces is priceless. On one occasion we had the Alzheimer’s society here to do a talk with families, staff or anyone that’s of interest, one of the ladies from the group said the feel of the home Is just so warm and that’s hard to do she said well done to us. We really enjoy our Fridays at Hethersett hall, one of the Dads is a civil servant and is going to do a blog on all the days and stories and share it further which is fantastic. Parents have been saying this is their favourite day of the week.

It was a perfect day, some of our residents used to be in the military so it was lovely for them to see.

We had a Jazz band also at this event with cheese a wine all the residents could sit outside as the weather

Was good to us, lots of residents families came also, we even had our own little solider he dressed up in his military gear he felt so proud.

Lots of residents had chats and had looks around the cars some of us even got to sit in the vehicles.

We offered the ladies and gentlemen with the military cars some lunch and they indulged in some scampi and chips they said this is the best treatment they’ve ever got and they’ll be back soon.
