Activities Are So Important

We think life is to be loved. Moving into residential care shouldn’t change that.

Of course, everyone has different interests, tastes and preferences. You’ll be pleased to know that because we provide maximum choice and variety, everyone who comes to live with us can have the lifestyle they prefer.

Breakfast in bed or in the dining area with company. A relaxing bath or straight into socialising. Reading the paper or watching a little light entertainment – however you might want to spend your time, we provide the right space, for solitude or socialising.

And then there’s our entertainment team. They work tirelessly and continuously to create a stimulating timetable of individual and group activities. Everything – of course – is optional, but we encourage involvement wherever it’s appropriate and beneficial. Regular activities include bingo and movie nights, arts and crafts, gardening, inclusive exercise sessions, games and visits.

Chatterbox

Chatterbox is unique to Westgate Healthcare and is all about building meaningful relationships with our residents. The idea of Chatterbox is that at each staff handover, every member of our team will take a card from the box and ask their residents a question.

Encouraging conversations that are generated by a simple question helps us to get to know our residents, including what they like and dislike, their favourite memories, and their job prior to retirement.

Oomph!
