Our residents are a diverse bunch, they have so many different interests and hobbies. For some it’s indoor pursuits such as crafting, knitting, and baking and for others they love the great outdoors, gardening, walking and, as we discovered recently, playing golf.
Our lifestyle team work extremely hard to ensure that everyone gets a chance to pursue their favourite pastimes, our residents meet up to take part in clubs and events and teach each other about their hobbies and the skills that they have honed over the years.
It is lovely to see our residents learning new these skills and enjoying each other’s company. They have taught us a few things too.
This week a couple of our residents have been spending time out in the garden playing golf. The weather has been beautiful, and it has given them a chance to enjoy both the sunshine and each other’s company.
It can be a bit of an upheaval moving into residential care and it really is a joy for us as a team to watch friendships flourish
