Activities Are So Important

We advocate activities that promote physical and mental wellbeing but we don’t believe in waiting for an Activities Coordinator to organise them. Our team members have a collective responsibility to support our residents to continue with their hobbies or pursue new leisure activities, when they want to and not as part of a set timetable.

We provide a combination of fun and therapeutic activities that help our residents to be more physically active, mentally stimulated and socially connected. Working together with our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach all of our residents benefit from a Personalised Wellbeing Programme, which is reviewed every four weeks. The programme uses data from medical records, past employment history and personal experiences, interests and social activities, and assesses current levels of physical and mental ability, to create a supportive and nurturing lifestyle.
