We recognise that group activities help our residents make friendships, promote general well being and improve their quality of life.
Physical activities are essential for maintaining everyday skills, which most people take for granted, such as hand and eye coordination and mobility, which are essential in promoting independence.
Therapeutic activities on a one-to-one basis are excellent for lifting a services user's self-esteem, making them feel important and that they matter, everybody needs a little human contact.
Validation Therapy is empowering our service users as we walk with them whatever year they are in, thus boosting their confidence, as they are ones doing the talking and we are the ones doing the listening.
Outings to local places of interest, local coffee shops and clubs, are very important as it keeps the service users in touch with the outside world, making them feel part of the community.
In-house activities where we invite entertainers to come and sing are excellent for lifting mood and building bonds and friendships.
Religious services are provided to help with all spiritual needs.
Gainford Care Homes strive to provide a high quality of activities throughout all our care homes.
