Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.
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 Spen Court Care Home
Just passing through
Our residents across our homes had a lovely time joining Daniel Snowman, for an exciting virtual event to discuss his book ‘Just Passing Through’.
Author of over a dozen books, Daniel Snowman’s long and active life has led him to interact in countless ways with the wider world and with some of its most famous inhabitants. His memoir evokes these experiences via a series of vivid literary vignettes.
Our residents found the talk very intriguing and informative, and were happy to learn more about Daniel’s experiences around the world. A great time was had by all.
Our homes had a fantastic time with vocal coach Mark De-Lisser as he led an amazing virtual singing session for our residents to enjoy.
Our residents were able to learn different techniques as they sang the famous ‘I’m a Believer’ by The Monkees.
There were smiles and laugher all around. The session was such a success and was great for the mind, body and soul.
Home say fond farewell to retiring colleague
After 6 years of continuous service at Spen Court much-loved Care Assistant, Christine has decided to retire. Staff and residents at the home sent Christine off in style with cards and gifts to thank her for many years of dedication and a farewell party with lots of singing. Everyone at the home has very fond memories of Christine and are delighted that she will be keeping in contact with the home as a volunteer.
A little friendly competition
Residents here at Spen Court took part in a few games of indoor bowls using a set of soft indoor bowling balls and a target for the residents to roll the balls into.
They had great fun! The residents enjoyed playing and started to become competitive trying to score more than the next person! A little light competition never hurt anyone and residents are looking forward to plenty more chances to compete against one another and improve their skills.
