Activities at our care homes

If you want to take part in activities, you’ll find plenty to get involved with at Springcare Care Homes.  

Friends and family members often join in, too – for example, some of our care homes offer monthly breakfast clubs and give residents the opportunity to help organise wildlife activities in the gardens.

There’s never any pressure to join in, however. If you want to sit quietly in your room, potter in the garden, or simply watch TV, that’s absolutely fine. And, of course, there’s always time to meet and chat with new friends.

Keep mind and body active

To help you keep mind and body active, you’ll find a wide variety of activities on offer, indoors and out, at our care homes. Our activities co-ordinators constantly come up with new ideas that build on people’s interests and hobbies – and suggestions are always welcome! As well as providing group activities, the co-ordinators also spend time on one-to-one activities with residents.

You’ll also find lots of opportunities to mix with the wider community. We regularly open activities to the public, welcome local groups in to visit, and organise events that allow you to meet new people. On top of this, we have trips out at least once a fortnight using the Springcare minibus.

Examples of home-based activities you could be taking part in include:

  • Joining in (and helping organise) birdwatching and other wildlife activities in our lovely gardens (families often invited)
  • Visiting resident-run shops (or taking a turn behind the counter)
  • Keeping fit with our regular exercise sessions (armchair exercises also available!)
  • Meeting the ponies who visit one of our care homes once a month
  • Learning new skills or brushing up old ones at our regular art classes
  • Chatting and playing with children from local nursery schools, who visit some of our homes regularly
  • Socialising over weekly high teas
  • Playing games and bingo
  • Enjoying music and singing with visiting entertainers
  • Taking part in religious services – local churches and religious organisations hold regular services and all spiritual needs can be catered for
  • Using computers to share experiences and prompt discussions
