Activities at Newlands

Activities within our home are tailored around the requests of the residents. Our Activities Coordinator holds regular activity meetings with the residents and staff to seek new thoughts and ideas. The home is committed to offering a varied range of activities for all residents from hand and nail care to gardening for those who have green fingers. We carry out reminiscence activities including planned entertainment days utilisng our PoDs, bringing the seaside into the home or a Dance Hall evening. We are proud to be part of the OOMPH Organisation, which offers upper and lower limb exercises to music, we have strong links with the local library offering visual and audio books for residents to enjoy.

We hold strong links with the community, especially schools and local children's sports teams who visit the home to provide entertainment and engagement with residents. We also maintain relationships with the church to ensure that residents spiritual beliefs are met. Externally we have our own mini bus and outings are planned and carried out again tailored to residents preferences, whether it be a shopping, visit to the local pub, tea and coffee afternoons or a scenic day out in the lakes and lovely countryside that surrounds us. However the fun does not just stop at the residents we care for but we also hold family nights for example our Pie and Pea Suppers, and various fayres throughout the year.

Newlands trip to Keswick!

We recently had a day trip out in the minibus to the beautiful Keswick! The weather wasn't that great on the day, however we still got to take in the stunning views and enjoy a delicious packed lunch made by our Head Chef. We can't wait for the next trip!
