Activities & Outings



All residents undergo an individual assessment to plan their activity likes and dislikes, interests etc. This is carried out by the resident’s key nurse and a member of the activities staff and is incorporated into the residents’ care plan.

We encourage all residents to participate in weekly activities and trips organised to local places of interest. Our experience is that residents really enjoy our stimulating programme. The programme may include an in-house movie screening, art & crafts, games, barbeques, shopping, external afternoon tea, park walks, concerts and theatre trips, to mention but a few. Our weekly bingo is also a great way for our residents to unwind and socialise with their fellow residents. Our travel vehicle is wheelchair accessible. Our garden at the rear of the building is also an excellent amenity available to all residents and family.
