Variety is the spice of life
Our Activity Co-ordinator always ensures that there are enjoyable and stimulating activities, entertainment, visits and events for residents, family and friends throughout the year. We encourage healthy bodies and minds- a ‘Positive Living’ approach, designed to improve appetite and humour, strength and energy as well as an opportunity for social interaction and the development of friendships with staff and other residents.
Activities and entertainment are both physically and mentally stimulating, providing structure to their day.
From daily helping to tidy up, flower arranging and bingo to arts and crafts, beauty therapy sessions, hairdressing and chiropody are but a few. There are also visiting entertainers from musicians and singers to magicians and theatre. The home also includes a wide screen TV and music system.
We also organise visits and trips to the local towns for shopping, garden centres and village pubs for the occasional lunch. Friends & relatives are always free to join us on these trips.
Peace of Mind
The Elderly can often experience feelings of loneliness, insecurity and anxiety, the warm and safe environment cultivated at Brookside allows residents to feel secure and enjoy peace of mind, confident in the knowledge that they will at all times be listened to and cared for.
Although the area is well provided for all religious beliefs, regular services of worship are provided at the home and we enjoy frequent visits from the local clergy.
