HOBBIES AND ACTIVITIES

We believe that moving in to our home shouldn’t mean that you have to stop doing things you enjoy.

Whether you would like to continue current hobbies, learn new pastimes, get out and about or prefer something a little more laid-back, you’ll find something to suit your needs. Our dedicated activity team ensure there’s always something fun to do and develops our social programme with our residents, not for them.

Recent activities and days out include:

  • Pet therapy
  • Crafts
  • Coffee mornings
  • Shopping trips
  • Bowls
  • Seated exercises, plus much more!

St Ann’s Garden’s, a community park with café, is just a short stroll up the road. With a bus stop nearby, residents have the freedom to come and go as they please.

We are able to arrange transport for you to travel to private appointments, social visits, places of worship and local hobby groups. We use our own minibus to take you to outdoor activities to ensure you don’t miss out on anything.

If it is easier for services to come to you, we have weekly visits from a hairdresser and chiropodist. If you would like a different type of therapist or professional to visit, or would like to continue to see one that you already use, we are happy to help arrange your appointments.

Volunteers visit us frequently, offering residents the chance to have a cup of tea and a chat, go on additional trips, or receive one-to-one support.

We also regularly welcome choirs, school groups and speakers from the local community, as well as hosting family events throughout the year to coincide with seasonal events such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christmas.

“When you have sight loss, life is not finished by any means. There are still many things you can do in spite of your loss of sight.”
Cecille, resident Wavertree House.
