Activites and Events

Our Activities Co-ordinators ensure that there is always something different happening every day. Service Users can enjoy coffee mornings, barbecues during summer, music sessions, days out, arts and crafts, quizes and Karaoke.  Service users are supported and encouraged to access the local community, enhancing their social participation—building trusting relationships and engaging in community activities. Activities are tailored to each individual service user as part of their care plans.  The home received an excellent rating for our activities programme on our last inspection report. All of our entertainments and activities are organised with the input of our Service Users.
