Activities

 

We provide a mix of activities and events with variety to appeal to all our resident’s individual tastes.

The activities reflect the needs and abilities of the residents.  These include – professional entertainment, quizzes, bingo, arts and crafts, exercises, sensory & relaxation, visiting library, tea parties, and memory lane sessions.  There are also outside trips organized for shopping, afternoon tea or a bus ride. Suitable transport and escorts are provided for external trips.

We also have visits from “Wayne” our adopted Donkey and his friend “Garth” from Ivybridge Donkey Sanctuary.
 
Our “Daily Sparkle” & “Weekly Sparkle” reminiscence newspaper contains news items relevant to that particular day or week in history, stimulating memories and topics of conversation between residents, visitors and carers alike.

 

Other services on offer include a weekly hair dresser, a beautician / aromatherapist, a chiropodist and an in-house shop selling toiletries, sweets and treats.  Seasonal visits are provided by a retail clothing company.

    

We are a multi-denominational home, with the local vicar providing a monthly service in the home. Ministers will hold services in resident’s rooms if required.  

 

Participation in all activities and events is purely voluntary and we look forward to residents families making suggestions and actively sharing in the social calendar.
