Activities at Hollyfields Care Home

Our Activities programme is formulated using resident requests and feedback from resident meetings. Residents are involved in planning the programme with things they they would like to do throughout the year. There is a mixture of activities that take place including both group and 1-1 engagement. Residents at Hollyfields particularly enjoy movement to music activities enabling them to increase their level of physical abilities and have fun at the same time, whilst others enjoy musical singalongs and food based activities throughout the week.

We have a mini bus that enables us to reconnect our residents with their community in ways that suite themselves as individuals. This can be achieved by visiting local farms, Georgian towns, local attractions and even the local public house for lunch with friends. Hollyfields have a great relationship with their local community and have visits from local organisations such as The Wyre Community Land Trust and are currently undertaking a 12 week funded project from Arts Etc. Residents at Hollyfields enjoy Pet Therapy visits from their pet rabbit 'Thumper' and like to help clean and feed him daily. Relatives can be encouraged to join us for activities and again are very supportive with delivering theme days and fundraising events within the home.

St. Patrick's Day

Here at Hollyfields and Ivy house we celebrated St. Patricks Day by listening to some Irish songs whilst having a laugh with some selfie sticks.

Some of our residents got up and had a dance some sat and tapped their feet to the music.

We had a talk about what they would had done for St. Patricks day when they was young, Mavis said she would have celebrated with a Guinness as it would have been her wedding Anniversary, she didn’t fancy a pint so she chose the Steak and Guinness pie instead.

 We all had a lovely day full of fun and laughter.


Fruity Friday

Our residents enjoyed a selection of fruit and fruit smoothies. They went down a treat.

Eating foods such as fruits that are lower in calories instead of higher-calorie food may be useful in helping to lower calorie intake. Fruits provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body, such as fibre, vitamin C, potassium, and folate.

Fruit can also support in lowering blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar.

Valentine's Day

Love has certainly been in the air here at Hollyfields and Ivy House. We had a wonderful day celebrating, our residents thoroughly enjoyed the music man who visited to serenade us through our romantic lunch. 

Some of our residents were left crying happy tears.. they said that the music bought back happy memories for them. 

Our staff had to hold back their tears, listening to tales of old and watching as loved ones joined in the celebrations with us. It really was a beautifully emotional day. 

Thank you again to Sarah and her team in the kitchen for providing such a wonderful lunch and to all the staff for such a warming, loving atmosphere.
