8 reasons to stay with us this autumn

1st September 2021

Autumnal arts and crafts

Nature at this time of year offers a range of elements that can be incorporated into fun arts and crafts from, pressing leaves to conker and acorn decorations. Arts and crafts activities are a great way to keep hands and minds occupied, as well as providing an outlet for individual’s creative sides. Activity-based care is a key ingredient for our residents to feel engaged and helps socialisation within our homes, which is why craft sessions like these are so popular with our residents.

Changing of the colours

There is nothing better than enjoying time outside in the garden or local area over the autumnal season to see the leaves change colour and spot wildlife who love this time of year. Light exercise and fresh air is important for our residents health and wellbeing.

Halloween celebrations

The spookiest time of year sees our homes putting on parties with fancy dress and spooky sweets and treats. Decorations of various shapes and sizes add to the drama of the day, with pumpkin picking, painting and carving being a favourite amongst our homes and residents.

Stimulate the senses

The autumnal smell of spices and flavour of pumpkin are ideal for baking, while apples and blackberries are perfect for jam making. Baking at our homes is a popular activity as who doesn’t like an afternoon tea or a natter over tea and cake? Whether it’s a cake, biscuit, or savoury it is great to see the residents in our homes working together to mix up some treats for all to enjoy. It’s good for joint mobility and the smell of baking can help to stimulate appetites too.
