Activities at St Thomas

Our activities coordinator is dedicated to organising meaningful activities on an individual and group basis to fulfill the daily needs of our residents, as we understand how important mental and physical stimulation is for their wellbeing. Our activities are available to everyone who wants to take part and there is something different going on everyday. We often go out on day trips including visiting shopping centres, garden centres, evening meals at the local pubs, visits to local schools and also coffee mornings with other care homes. We have a wide range of entertainers that visit us at our home including musical therapists, Millers Ark Farm, pantomimes as well as our local salvation army and lots more. We encourage families to join us on trips out and also in home activities such as baking, arts and crafts, dancing and singing, we believe this is a great way for our residents to live an active and fun life here with us at St Thomas.

A Wonderful Afternoon

It was a lovely visit from Father Christmas and his reindeer here at St Thomas. Residents had a great time, as did their loved ones, who came to join in with the festive celebrations.

Charlie and he wife, Beryl (pictured), were able to enjoy making Christmas memories together.

We would like to say a huge thank you to 'Santa Sleigh Basingstoke' for visiting us and allowing Santa to come into our home to and visiting some of the less mobile residents we support here.

A Bit of Redecorating

Our beautiful chapel here at St Thomas was in need of a freshen up, so our maintenance men, John and Marios, with the help of some staff members, got together and gave it a completely new look.

The team work was fantastic and the end results look amazing. John And Marios both worked so hard and everyone was really impressed.

Work Experience Wonders

Our work experience volunteers were caught singing and playing the piano and the ladies and gents walking by stopped to listen. Joyce gave them a round of applause when they had finished their song – she thought they were fabulous!

Flower Power

The lovely ladies – Valerie & Joy – along with a few other residents, arranged these beautiful flowers for our front desk in our reception area! They worked together to cut and put the flowers in the oasis and the finished result was lovely. What great teamwork!
