Life in a Caring Home is viewed as a continuum of life – an opportunity to gain new experiences and learn new things – whilst maintaining your existing hobbies and interests.
At every Caring Home, there is a dedicated activities co-ordinator who is on hand to support residents in learning new hobbies and maintaining existing ones.
An activities programme is developed by the activities co-ordinators who work in conjunction with the clinical team in reviewing each individuals occupational interests and tailoring an activities programme that addresses them.
For further information about activities please visit our “living with us” section.

"The home is bright and cheerful and my mother is well looked after. I am always made to feel welcome when I visit and any concerns I may have are always dealt with promptly. I like the large sitting room with small areas to sit in groups rather than around the walls as is found in some homes. Plenty of comfortable chairs for the residents. Activities good and 'one to one' excellent." - Christine C

"The initial ambience of this home is attractive, warm and welcoming. I visited quite a few homes, but after being shown around by the Head of Care, felt Frethey would be the right place for my Husband. Sadly he has deteriorated in the time he has lived here, but his care plan has been adjusted to provide the appropriate care for him. Not only is he, I would almost say, lovingly cared for (as are the other residents)... carehomes.co.uk" - Stella Vincent
