Activities Are So Important

The activities team works extremely hard to get to know each person in our care, as well as their health needs. Using their personal ‘this is me’ booklet, we take a holistic, individual approach, and tailor all events to match the individual needs of each resident. We establish their history, hobbies and interests and incorporate this rich historical information into all the daily activities planned by our creative team to organise activities they interest our residents.

Our home has an environment that is ideal for people living with dementia and can help improve their quality of life. We enable residents to stay safe, whilst being physically active and engaged. We have may visiting groups who entertain our residents. We have welcomed the local police force, who visited with riot vans and the JJ Galway Band who played music for the residents.
