Activities & Recreation
At St. George’s, we believe that psychological stimulation is just as important as the physical care that we give and we strive to provide a wide and varied diary of events both inside and outside of the Home, to cater for as many interests as possible.
Our Activities Coordinator Chloe Rust joins us every afternoon from Monday to Friday to spend time running and organising activities with the residents.
She spends time with residents both one to one and as a group and is a valued member of our close knit team.
To give you just a taste of the activities that we offer, our regular scheduled activities include:
- Chair based exercise
- Visiting pianists & musicians
- Arts & crafts
- Going out for afternoon tea
- Bingo & Quizzes
- Scrabble, Board & Card Games
- Themed Meals
- Visiting speakers
- Trips to gardens & the local countryside
For other planned activities please have a look at our calendar of events.
GEORGIE the MiniBus
We love our minibus Georgie & the freedom this gives us to get out & about. Impromptu outings on sunny days, visits to local beauty spots and enjoying seasonal and local activities.
Our minibus does allow our residents to remain within a wheelchair if necessary too.
Our garden has long been a source of pleasure for many residents. Whether you like to feed the garden birds, take a stroll or simply sit on a bench and enjoy the sun, these outdoor activities are strongly encouraged. With the recent addition of raised beds for vegetable growing, we can even enjoy the good life and put a small selection of home grown produce on our menu as well!
As we have a very active social life, we also produce a quarterly newsletter for our residents and their families to keep them informed of all our activities. We actively encourage families to participate in all of our activities, and are very fortunate in the support that we do receive by way of donations of time, donation of items and volunteers for transport and would not be able to do the things that we do without them!
