Entertainment & Activities
We offer a range of activities to support and stimulate our residents, the variation in the range of activities allows us to support residents both in groups and individually whilst at the same time aiming to providing fun, stimulation and enjoyment. Our in-house activities co-ordinator offers a weekly programme of varied activities and events.
In 2018 we created a new pavilion tea room and tea room kitchen (located in the conservatory) dedicated to Ivy Hassell who was a resident in Mansion House for 19 years passing away in 2018 at the age of 108, the pavilion is dedicated to Ivy and has been called Ivy’s tea room in her honour and we welcome families to use this facility throughout the year to make themselves a cup of tea and enjoy a piece of homemade cake which is available everyday.
There is also a programme of trips arranged throughout the year that residents can take part in as well as the usual birthday tea’s, annual residents and family BBQ, visiting professional entertainers and at Christmas time Carols sung by visiting schools/pre-schools and our annual Christmas residents and family afternoon with buffet, drinks and a sing song or two!
