Our vision for activities is to eliminate loneliness, helplessness, and boredom. There is a great sense of community thanks to a full activity program that’s developed to meet each individual’s interests and capabilities. With a constant emphasis on maintaining dignity and independence, these activities and social events play an important role in achieving this.
Our music sessions are eagerly anticipated and give an opportunity for everyone to show off their fancy footwork and vocal talents. Quizzes and Bingo are keenly contested and ensure friendly rivalry and fun.
But more importantly it is the variety and spontaneity.
Our Hairdresser is here every week and is an important part of the community.
Mass is celebrated every Thursday.
Our Residents Committee meets regularly to discuss and plan these activities.
There is also a children’s playground beside us for when the little ones visit.
Whether you decided to dine in the privacy of your bedroom or join us in the dining room our cooks put a great effort into making it an occasion.
Shortly after you join us a Nurse will sit down and discuss your dietary needs and the cook will chat about your likes and dislikes.
Our dining room is bright and homely. As far as possible fresh seasonal ingredients are used, the produce from the garden and poytunnel being the first.
Special days are celebrated with input from the residents. Paddy’s day, Easter or a special birthdays.
Snacks and drinks are available throughout the day and visitors are welcome to a cup of tea any time.
The Nursing Home is on 2 acres of mature planted gardens. There are plenty of pathways to exercise or you can potter in the poytunnel, at the raised beds or just sit beside the pond listening to the waterfall.
Gardening is a wonderful tonic and Liz our social and therapeutic horticulturist will guide you or you can just sit and watch.
We also have our indoor garden ‘the sanctuary’ with a pond and an aviary.
