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.

"I would certainly recommend this care home very highly. My daughter was hospitalised for a year, before getting this placement. While awaiting this place, I lost my husband and my daughter became unable to walk. She was very depressed. It was a godsend when this place became available. She has settled in extremely well, and I am very much reassured that she is being well looked after. Staff are very friendly and cope with my daughter's every need... carehomes.co.uk" - Lilian Hepburn
