Activities Are So Important

Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Manton Heights is a key focus for our dedicated team.

By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes and dislikes as well as activities they may like to try.

No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.

In addition to keeping fit with chair-based exercises, baking, quizzes, movie nights and our knit and natter club, we also take great pleasure in welcoming visiting entertainers, schools, nurseries, and groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents.

Our team and residents also love pottering around the local garden centre, visiting local attractions, such as country parks and wildlife centres, and getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year  complete with themed menus and decorations!
