Lifestyle – Witham
We promote and encourage the independence of our Residents, supporting them to live fulfilled and stimulated lives. We have a full time Activities Manager who is widely praised for the range of therapeutic and leisure activities that she provides. Favourites include Arts and Crafts, baking afternoons, gardening club and Poetry groups.
During the summer months we arrange outings to local places of interest and sometimes a drive out for a cup of tea and cake or a fish and chip supper on the prom at Maldon.
All residents who have a special interest or hobby are encouraged and if practicable facilitated to enable them to continue. There is a coffee morning every Thursday and relatives and friends are encouraged to come and join in.
Outside entertainers visit the home on a regular basis and we often hold our own themed days. Barbecues are especially popular when the weather permits.
Our Activities Manager also spends time with residents on an individual basis perhaps reading a newspaper with them, helping with their post or simply having a chat.
Every month a Social Calendar is delivered to each resident with a planned programme of events and activities. A regular News Letter is also produced.
We have a visiting Hairdresser, Chiropodist, Dentist and Optician and we hold regular Religious Services
