Fantastic Fun Day at East Hill House

Earlier this week, East Hill House, care home in Liss, hosted a free family Fun Day for their residents and the local community. Everyone had a great day despite the poor weather. The activities included a very popular petting farm and a Penalty shoot-out. Peekaboo, a local make up shop, were kept busy decorating the faces of many visitors.

A belated visit from the Easter Bunny and an Easter egg hunt kept everyone entertained throughout the day. Adding to the fun and excitement on the day visitors and residents enjoyed watching a range of beautiful Butterfly’s from the East Hill Butterfly Farm hatching too. The East Hill House Fun Day certainly proved to be very popular with all the visitors and the care home residents alike.

With recent studies showing that many residents admitted to care homes may experience shyness and loneliness when they find themselves suddenly in a strange environment, it is of vital importance for our team here at East Hill House to provide activities that create and maintain a nurturing environment. Activities we know have a positive effect on our residents’ welfare include board games, communal cafe areas, cooking classes, gardening and community gatherings.

Encouraging our residents out of their rooms to join in with activities also gives them greater levels of confidence, improves their memory and dexterity, with further benefits evident such as an improved appetite and overall well-being.

And after all, if our residents are happy. so are we.

East Hill House which provides residential and dementia care for up to 32 elderly people, was awarded ‘Best Dementia Care Home of the Year’ at the prestigious National Dementia Care Awards in 2017. Rated ‘Good’ by the quality inspector, CQC, they continuously improve the lives of their residents through offering wide ranging activities and events both in and outside of the home involving members of the local community as often as possible.
