“Mental stimulation is very important in both a nursing home and dementia setting. Everyone is encouraged to get involved and activities are adapted to suit our clients living with dementia.”
We employ a full time activities co-ordinator, Lucy Thompson, who cares for the mental stimulation and social needs of all our residents.
Lucy is a bundle of energy who delights in the time she spends with the people in our care.
Lucy loves nothing more than organising sing-a-longs, garden parties and painting classes; she recently arranged for the local bird of prey centre to visit with some of their amazing birds. Lucy has even been known to turn one of the lounges into a beach for the day, complete with sand and, on another occasion, a pub.
As well as these activities, we also provide:
- Daily newspapers and magazines
- Day trips, excursions, leisure activities
- Visiting GP, hairdresser, chiropodist, dentist, physiotherapist, library and talking newspapers
Armchair Zumba - Monday Afternoon at 2.30pm, a fun way to keep fit with great music and lots of fun.
Church Service - Goostrey Methodist Church one Tuesday per month.
Various trips to the local cinema and shows.
