Activities Are So Important

Individuality and community are important to us; everyone at Mountford is part of our community, including residents, staff, relatives and visitors. You can sense the homely and relaxed atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door and there is always laughter and music coming from our main room. We have lots of activities to stimulate the mind and body, as well as regular trips to nearby towns and fun local events. We have our own Oomph activities co-ordinator to keep you busy. We have quite the active social life!

We offer a range of activities designed to stimulate body and mind and each week, our Activities Co-ordinator will prepare a varied list of organised activities designed to meet the social, physical, spiritual and environmental needs of our residents. We encourage friends and family members to join us. In addition to our regular activities, entertainers and performers visit on a frequent basis and seasonal events, such as Christmas and birthdays, are always celebrated. Residents' loved ones are welcome to visit and we are able to accommodate small parties and gatherings to celebrate these occasions on request as well.

We understand how people have different interests and abilities and try our best to provide meaningful activities to suit each individual. Our staff get to know what stimulates, engages and gives purpose to each individual and we take feedback from our residents to make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy.

We also employ the organisation 'Oomph', an award-winning social enterprise dedicated to enhancing the mental, physical and emotional well-being of older adults. They deliver ground-breaking, cost effective solutions to give older people the best possible quality of life.
