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.
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 Tyspane Care Home
Residents have been getting out on to the terrace and planting up strawberries in our new wheelchair-friendly raised beds. Everyone, including the staff (and the birds), are now eagerly awaiting the first ripe strawberry.
Games club and, in particular, Scrabble is officially a hit! So much so that the activities team have had to buy a new board game and residents are asking to play on a daily basis.
Residents enjoyed a visit from pet therapy dog, Gozo, and his owner Paul. It was a little bit of an emotional reunion for some, as they hadn’t seen Gozo for over a year!
Residents enjoyed a Royal Ascot-themed ladies day at Tyspane with hat decorating. Tea on the terrace and an afternoon of watching the races live on the television.
Residents at Tyspane celebrated VE Day with Bletchley Park-style word games, chatting about their experiences and afternoon tea and music.
Residents took part in an afternoon of bowling, first as single players and then a teams. It got quite competitive and we are always surprised what good aim our residents have.
