Activities and Entertainment We create a varied weekly activity programme which is person centred and enhances our resident’s daily living. We encourage social interaction and we pride ourselves that we take time to talk with our residents and their families to find out about their lives prior to joining us at St Andrew’s and structure our entertainment accordingly. An example of our activities includes visits from musicians/sing-a-longs, choirs, dance and keep fit classes and reminiscence therapy. In addition to this, we take time to sit and chat or reminisce with our residents and we have little quizzes, film nights & TV, board games etc. The list is limitless, from pet therapy to planting sunflowers, from mosaic art to a visit from Santa! We take residents out to the local shops, library, garden centres, coffee houses etc whenever it is possible to do so. We are lucky enough to be situated opposite a beautiful park and we are only a short drive away from Waterperry Gardens and local ‘open farms’ which we like to take advantage of in the good weather. Everyone’s birthday is celebrated in the traditional way and other special occasions are always an excuse to have a party to which everyone is welcome. Newspapers, magazines, fresh fruit and sweets are available throughout the Home daily. The Home can arrange visits from ministers of any denomination as requested.
