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 Vecta House Care Home
We all enjoyed our chocolate eggs over Easter with many other activities going on, including arts and crafts, where we made Easter bonnets.
We enjoy our garden space here a Vecta House, and we all love taking part in doing the garden and getting our hands dirty. We have been taking part in planting the seeds ready for them to go out in the garden.
Greek Independence Day
We had our own fun by listening to some Greek music whilst playing with balloons and doing what the Greek do with plates, but ours was paper. We also looked around Greece virtually, then in the afternoon we settled down and watched some movies that were set in Greece.
Our lovely ladies enjoyed a day of treats and gifts on Mother’s Day and enjoyed a lovely roast dinner and chocolate cake for lunch.
World Book Day
Residents around the home enjoyed one-to-one time reading books they enjoy.
World Wildlife Day
We had a lot of fun painting the bird boxes and looking in the garden to see the wild life we have around the home.
