A Varied and Regular Activity Programme for our Residents to Enjoy...

St Joseph’s has two dedicated activity co-ordinators who organise a regular and varied programme ranging from one to one or resident specific integration, group activities as well as visiting guests such as singers. There are also organised outings utilising the home’s minibus.

We encourage our residents to live their lives as they wish, they are able to join in the activities and events if they desire.

Events

Our team tailor the activity programme to suit a variety of interests and hobbies ensuring that all of our residents feel included. We understand how vital it is for our residents to feel part of a wider community and integration is at the heart of what we aim to do.

All of our residents are important no matter what level of care they are receiving they will be invited to join in with the activities whether that be on a one to one basis or enjoying the guest entertainer.

As part of our  programme we encourage relatives and friends to become involved as we feel it makes the activities more enjoyable for our residents.  We also hold special celebratory lunches for Mother’s day and Father’s day throughout the year and invite families to join their loved ones.  These are always very popular and well attended.

The home has its own hairdressing salon and the hairdresser attends once a week.  Any residents that are unable to attend the salon are able to have their hair done in their room.  We also have a Foot Practitioner that visits the home every six weeks and can attend to hands and feet.

We have a monthly communion service which all residents are welcome to attend.  Annual Christmas service and remembrance Sunday.
