We always encourage residents to pursue their individual interests by providing support to ensure each individual’s hobbies and interests are maintained without exerting pressure. Every resident is encouraged to make use of the home’s facilities and be fulfilled in the lifestyle of their choice. Care staff are always on hand to assist in making appropriate, informed choices of how to spend their time, where practical, and with unnecessary risk taking.
The social atmosphere of the home focuses on physical and emotional health whilst looking to support personal interests.
Our qualified care staff encourage community spirited activity participation to ensure a sense of inclusion. Activities are specifically designed to meet individual’s needs and are tailored to each resident’s preferences and abilities. Our residents enjoy activities such as prize bingo, dominoes, craft sessions, horticultural therapy, beauty and relaxation activities as well as golf and croquet on the lawn.
Outings to local amenities are available such as the garden centres, the beautiful local parks. Drives out to the countryside are a favourite to help stimulate memories and create moments of reminiscing.
We have a Chairobics instructor that visits the home every Friday, we also have regular monthly visits from Ranmoor church to hold Communion and “Lost Chord”, a musical experience tailored for dementia sufferers, also visit twice each month.
All religions and cultures are recognised within the home. We celebrate religious festivals and all resident’s are supported to partake in such activities and celebrations if they wish to do so.
Visiting is permitted at any time at Bridgedale House and we encourage family and friends to participate in our activities. We have quieter areas of the home available for more private gatherings or family celebrations.
We also enjoy parties in the gardens in the summer and themed cocktail evenings at Christmas, at which we encourage the whole family to join us and make some memories!
Katy from Heaven on earth visits Bridgedale House twice a month to provide Spa therapy to our residents, treatments such as facials, manicures, pedicures and massages. Katy has been practising Beauty since she qualified to a level 3 National Vocational Qualification in 2003.
