Ludmila has been working at Shelburne Lodge for many years and has really enjoyed her time in the home.

Activities at our home

Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

Woburn Safari Park

We were thrilled to be able to give the residents an opportunity to visit Woburn Safari Park! The Jumbulance arrived early and everyone was up and excited and keen to get on the road. The view from the window was perfect, enabling everyone to have a great view of all the animals. The warm weather gave everyone the opportunity to enjoy lunch outside whilst admiring the penguins.
