Christmas cheer at Bradbury House

The Residents at Bradbury House in Braintree this week helped put up the Christmas trees and the lights in the lounge whilst listening to Christmas music.

Most of our residents enjoyed doing this in their homes before they moved to Bradbury House, and is seen as an important part of the beginning of Christmas celebrations.

We realise offering our residents opportunities during their day to participate in spontaneous and planned activity that is meaningful to them and that promotes their health and mental well being is very important. Meaningful activities are an important part of every day life, at Bradbury House we will do all we can to make sure the residents can continue to do what they enjoyed before they moved here.

It is important to remain active, including maintaining everyday skills. Meaningful activities should be enjoyable, and may be linked to hobbies or interests that the person enjoyed before moving into a care home. Activities such as taking a walk, cooking or painting can help preserve dignity and self-esteem. Some of the most beneficial activities can be simple, everyday tasks such as setting the table for a meal or folding clothes, or putting up decorations. They can help a person feel connected to normal life and can maximise choice and control. Some activities offer an emotional connection with others and provide a sense of belonging.

Bradbury House provides residential care in a 17th Century converted building for up to 20 elderly people.
