Activities Are So Important

Each house has televisions and music players in the living and dining rooms. Board games, books and talking books for the blind are provided and residents may also participate in weekly craft sessions. Accompanied walks in the gardens are frequently arranged, as are visits to shops, cafes, the library, church and local fetes.

Outings to the White Rock and De La Warr theatres also take place regularly, not forgetting the annual afternoon of tea and cakes at Buckhurst Park stately home. A pianist and singer visits Edendale twice weekly when residents may appreciate the music, request favourites and dance along.

Weekly exercise and stretch sessions are also held in each house for those who wish to participate and although residents are free to pass their time as they wish, every encouragement is made for them to use the communal living areas, thereby avoiding isolation. Edendale’s residents are visited fortnightly by ‘Motivate’, an organisation of professional therapists. These therapists specialise in delivering activity sessions aimed at stimulating the minds and bodies of the elderly and mentally ill.

 Finally, every effort is made to make Christmas a pleasant time for our residents. A ‘Christmas Carols’ evening is held, during which punch and snacks are served and, in the week before Christmas, staff and residents celebrate with a pre-Christmas pub lunch. Birthdays, Easter and New Year are also celebrated as appropriate.
