Activities at our home
Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
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
Life at Marriott House and Lodge Care Home
Virtually and perfect Virtual Quiz
Marriott House and Lodge’s staff and residents pulled out all the stops by dressing up in their glittery Christmas best to link up with all the other care homes in the south of the country for a whole host of different fun activities culminating in the Barchester Big Quiz of the Year. When they weren’t quizzing, residents enjoyed a feast of festive foods prepared by the home fabulous Head Chef.

The Mamouth task of wrapping up our wonderful Residents Christmas Gifts.
Its been a busy time here for our staff at Marriott House and Lodge getting ready for Christmas. After non stop shoping for our residents gifts we are now non stop wrapping the gifts. However the end result on Christmas Day will be so worth while.
It's starting to look a lot like Christmas
Marriott House and Lodge’s residents and staff have been busy creating lots of beautiful Christmas displays to make the home as festive as can be. The residents have also been crafting home-made decorations for the Christmas tree which they all helped to decorate.
