Activities at Longueville Court Care Home

Our activities coordinators are committed to organising a variety of activities that reflect the interests and capabilities for everybody we support ensuring a person centred approach.

The team have a flexible approach to our programme and we are constantly reviewing and updating our programmes to ensure we cater for everyone's needs and varied abilities.

The activities programme includes regular trips utilising the homes minibus, these include a number of destinations of local interest. We are particularly proud of the relationship we have built with Peterborough Sailability. This registered charity offers the opportunities to those with restricted mobility to enjoy the thrill of sailing on the open water and the sense of independence that brings in specially adapted boats.

Involvement in the local community is something that the whole team are very passionate about and we provide regular visits to a number of different facilities including local schools and churches. These activities also extend too visits from "Pat dogs" and local entertainers to aid in our ongoing quest to give each individual as much support and stimulation as they require.

We are sailing!!!

Sailability is back, and our residents couldn't be happier. The weather was perfect for a nice sail around Ferry Meadows, our residents who didn't sail enjoyed a nice coffee sitting by the water

British Sign Language course

Today was the first of our 5-week British Sign Language course. It was really fabulous and fun. We also had the pleasure of having Werrington Lodge join us. We can't wait until next week!

Rugby time!!

Today we took Louise to watch her favourite team play, she had a great time and it was made even better that they won. What a great day


Revd Canon Tim Alban Jones Visits

Today we had the privilege of having the Revd Canon Tim Alban Jones, the Vice Dean of Peterborough Cathedral, visit our home. He gave a fascinating talk about the history of the Cathedral, that we all enjoyed, as well as showing our residents images, on the projector!! Our residents enjoyed the morning and are looking forward to a follow up visit, to see the Cathedral in person!!!


Irish Dancers

It has been lovely to enjoy the Solas group of Irish dancers, here at Longueville Court, as part of our celebrations for St. Patrick's day. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their display and we were happy to present each of the students with a thank you card and Easter egg. All of our residents and family members, are still talking about your visit!!!


Cornish Pasty Week

This afternoon we had a Cornish pasty Taste test , we had 5 different style of pasties with all different fillings, surprisingly the chicken Tika pasty was a big hit with the residents.
