At Field House, we are passionate about supporting residents to manage their health and wellbeing and be active and happy. We want to make sure the daily lives of our residents are as comfortable and fulfilling as possible and ensure that they get the most out of life. We offer a wide variety of daily activities including activities and games designed for those with Dementia.
Residents will lead a happy and satisfied life here at Field House.
We work with our residents to ensure they maintain positive and provide activities that provide entertainment, pleasure and fulfilment. These can be social and stimulating activities, encouraging them to continue or to take up new hobbies, to arranging events that encompass not only residents and staff, but also family members.
Part and parcel of creating a comfortable home for our residents, is supporting residents to share with us their memories of their past. This helps them connect with our staff and other residents, and also allows them to express their personalities. Divulging little anecdotes and stories also enables residents to feel more relaxed, as though Field House is a home from home.
We have created games, such as ‘What is in the box?’ which entails a suitcase full of memorabilia, designed to trigger memory and stimulate residents’ thought processes. Numerous studies show that memory retention is aided by such methods, helping residents remain much more self-reliant.
Our stimulating activities and games are not just led by staff – we engage residents by asking them about their likes, hobbies and interests, so that we can involve them with tasks for the whole house, and residents’ relatives and friends who visit us.
