Activities play an important role in the daily living of our residents and it is with this in mind that this area is centered around variety, enabling something for everyone regardless of physical condition and in order to make each day as memorable as the next, here are a sample of some of our resident’s chosen activity involvement. 

Whilst the home is keen to ensure any activities provide some stimulation, residents and their families are involved to determine choices that will help provide this element as well as in an entertaining way to try and make everyone feel special.

We are also mindful of residents who may not be able or desire to participate within a group setting, and the activities organiser will visit residents in their room for a personal chat, a reading, religious or otherwise, and generally bring a spiritual element into their lives.

 


Activities are usually carried out within the home however, others take the form of outings which makes a change of environment all the more pleasurable.      Recent trips have included visits to Bradford's premier park, Lister Park, together with Cartwright Hall where memories of scenes and paintings of bygone Bradford are displayed.    There are also regular exhibitions of world renown local artist, David Hockney, with many variations of his talent displayed in the main picture gallery.
 

Outings to places such as tea rooms, garden centres and locations where residents have expressed a desire to visit are organised by the home’s activities co-ordinator according to weather conditions and available transport.   

 

 

 

 

 

Residents express their likes & dislikes in different ways

however it is clear that when people are enjoying themselves,

this is not difficult to understand, whatever their incapacities,

and a smiling face will take the place of a thousand words.
