We arrange a variety of regular activities throughout the year, including entertainment and activities in the home. This includes outings to places of interest.
We try to place advanced notice of all our activities on the notice board and we also involve residents and relatives in choice of activities. To participate or not in any activity is always the resident’s choice. We are members of NAPA (National Association for Providers of Activities for older people). Val our activity organiser has completed her QCF Level 2 in Health and social care and her Certificate of Dementia awareness. She has also completed a level 2 Award for Provision of Activities. Val organises Resident meetings throughout the year
Our hairdresser Roz visits every Tuesday. Residents can have a trim, shampoo set, or perms etc; and they thoroughly enjoy the experience. Families comment on how good the service is.
Kris visits on a Wednesday bringing relaxing massage for feet and hands. After a short session residents report feeling wonderful!
Well everyone needs it and residents are no exception. Scott from LincsBodyfit puts residents through their paces twice a week with seated exercise that helps reduce falls, improve posture and grasp. It also brings people together with Scott working his magic on those who think that the ‘can’t do it’!
