Activities
Merlewood employs two Social Events Coordinators who are available seven days per week. Socially events may take the form of a group activity or an activity on a one-to-one basis. These activities are designed to reflect the interests of the residents living with us as we strive to ensure a person-centred approach to care.
 
Residents are actively encouraged to exercise choice and to enjoy life to its full potential, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Stimulating group and one to one activities are encouraged according to individual needs, abilities and aspirations. Person centred care is at the heart of our philosophy.
 
We believe residents should retain as much of their independence and mobility as possible. Important to staying fit and active is the stimulus of living with like-minded people. In addition, residents can enjoy trips in our specially adapted minibus to places of interest and entertainment or simply to the local shops.
 
There is a continuous programme of events, including a gentle fitness exercise programme undertaken by the Social Events Coordinator.
 
Stimulating activities and social opportunities are based on what our residents like doing and are central to every day life in the home. Feedback and suggestions are collected from our residents and the results ensure that we tailor our programmes to resident’s wishes and they can join in as much or as little as they wish. Some of the activities on offer include:
 
  • Trips out in our specially adapted mini-bus
  • Themed lunches/suppers
  • Summer Garden Fete
  • Events based around Christmas, Easter, Bonfire Night, New Year
  • Musical entertainment
  • Topical talks
  • Film shows
  • Wine Tasting
  • Gentle exercise classes
  • Shopping Trips
  • Art and Handicrafts
  • Flower arranging
  • Indoor gardening

Friends of Merlewood aremade up of local volunteers who take a great interest in Merlewood by visiting and befriending residents, and orgainising a library service. Residents, of course, are free to participate in the leisure activities that appeal to them most.
