Care Home Activities
Care home activities at Woodlands and Hill Brow are truly a family concern. We welcome the residents’ families and friends to get involved. And, we offer a varied activities programme.
A lively programme means there is something going on 7 days a week. Firstly, the regular and popular activities of outgoings to Fleet, Odiham and Hartley Wintney for shopping and garden centre coffee mornings. Plus, fish and chip lunches, theatre trips and visits to the local pub. Residents are encouraged to contribute their own ideas to the programme through monthly resident’s committee meetings, and a questionnaire that they complete every 6 months.
Activities offer residents and opportunity to participate in a variety of social, fun events and activities. For instance, each year we take drives out to see the snowdrops, blue bells and autumn leaves. We also go to the seaside, canal boat trips, and take many one – off outings to places of interest. The activities programme includes the poetry club, singing, gardening, bingo, card making, the giant crossword, and wine tasting.
We also have local musicians who come and perform for us – a mixture of classical, jazz and old time. We visit the local theatres regularly, and old time musical concerts are a favourite too.
We have regular visits from the chiropodist and the beautician. The hairdresser also visits once a week and appointments can be made with her. The local Vicar also visits to give monthly communion, and importantly, we have a local church group who come once a month to give bible readings and sing favourite hymns.
Some residents are also able to regularly attend local churches.
We provide rooms which people can book for parties, and can also organise parties for residents.
We have no formal visiting, as families and friends are encouraged to visit whenever they can.
