Activities at White Lodge
Our Activities Coordinators here at White Lodge enjoy the fulfillment of helping residents feel important and a part of something. Meaningful moments are created through laughter and comfort. A varied activities programme is offered for the betterment of residents' bodies and minds, including music for health, 'Oomph' sessions and chair Zumba, in addition to coffee and cake groups that all inevitably lead to giggles and old fashioned singalongs. Also, we organise parties, trips out, walks in the country, bus outings and wonderful entertainers to visit our home. A sneaky tipple is always welcomed with cheese and crackers and, at the end of the day, it is important to go home knowing our activities have made a difference.
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

Fall Fighters Campaign in the Community
Today Ramona, General Manager and Ioana, the Deputy Manager of White Lodge went out in the community to talk about Barchester's Fall Fighter Campaign. This campaign is in conjunction with ROSPA every year one in three people over the age of 65 have a fall every year and when over 80 this increases to a 50% chance of a fall so prevention will change lives. Ramona and Ioana visited Blunsdon Court Retirement apartments in Swindon to talk about the campaign as well as respite care at White Lodge.
