At Benson House Care Home we believe in enabling residents to continue the hobbies and interests they love, staying as active and independent as possible.
We have a team of talented Health and Wellbeing Co-ordinators who ensure there is always plenty to do, and they take guidance from the residents and their families to plan varied and fulfilling activities to suit them personally. We recognise that everyone is unique and so are the daily activities they choose to do.
Within the home, our lounges are a popular place to entertain visitors or meet friends for morning coffee or afternoon tea. Residents and visitors can also enjoy our lovely landscaped gardens, whilst our hairdressers help residents look their best, whatever the occasion.
There are opportunities for relaxation and reflection either alone or as part of a larger group through creative activities such as story-telling, music, song, dance and arts and crafts. All residents are given the opportunity to contribute suggestions and to be involved in the development of the programme of activities.
Typical activities include:
- Film screenings in our cinema
- Afternoon tea with homemade cakes
- Arts and Crafts
- Gardening - tending to raised beds or pots
- Reminiscence sessions
- Light exercise
- Knit & Natter with other residents
- Visiting Musicians and Entertainers
and much more
