Activities at our home

Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.

Come and join us at our Open Day

Meet our dedicated team on Saturday 19th January, who can answer any questions you may have about our home.

Christmas Time

We were joined by Goldsbough School, who came in to sing to residents. We were also joined by some baby lambs, and everyone loved making a fuss of them – and lots, lots more! It was a very merry Christmas!

Winter Wonderland

We enjoyed a trip out to Winter Wonderland st Stockald Park. Residents loved it; there were loads of things to see and do and, to top it off, we enjoyed a delicious lunch with some hot chocolate.

Children in Need

The kitchen staff made some Pudsey cakes for Children in Need, and got into the spirit of things by dressing up. We also hosted a raffle and managed to raise £40 for a great cause.
