Entertainment

At The Amwell Care Home, we do all that we can to enhance the experience of all residents who live with us. We want our residents to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives, which is what we believe they truly deserve. Thanks to our two fantastic Activity Coordinators and our varied activities programme, we are able to offer a plethora of opportunities for our residents to socialise, be active and most importantly, enjoy themselves. 

From the entertainment we welcome into our home, to the activities that we organise, all are planned with our residents best interests in mind. We work closely with our residents to ensure that they can continue doing the hobbies they know and love, as well as introducing them to brand new exciting activities.

Activities For All

We are very fortunate to have two Activity Coordinators with us here at The Amwell Care Home, who are completely dedicated to ensuring our residents always have something to look forward to. Our social and activities calendar is often planned in advance so that we can guarantee no two days are ever the same. No matter the weather, activities can still go ahead as our home has warm and cosy communal lounges for indoor activities, and multiple enclosed gardens for when the sun is shining. 

Taking the time to get to know each and every resident on a personal level plays a great part in organising such a fantastic and varied activities programme, as it allows us to facilitate for everyone. Activities planned in the home can vary from men’s club and musical therapy, to sensory sessions and coffee mornings. We also like to get involved with the local community as much as we can, and have been known to take residents on a array of outings such as to car shows, local landmarks, or even just for a pub meal.

Carry on Doing the Things You Love

We understand that moving into a new home and environment can often be unsettling, which is why we do all that we can to enable our residents to continue living their lives the way they always have. We want our residents to be able to maintain their usual routines, and we encourage them to live as independently as possible, whilst reassuring them that we are here for them whenever they need us. Whether there’s a certain hobby our residents want to carry on doing, or a new interest that they want to pursue, we do all we can to ensure our residents find enjoyment in every day.

Endless Options for Entertainment

We have a vast range of connections which means we regularly welcome entertainment from all walks of life into our home. In the past, we have introduced our residents to musical entertainers, pet therapy and exercise classes. We also benefit from relationships with local schools, churches and nursery which further enhance the social wellbeing of our residents. 

Entertainment very much starts within our home however, as we often host bingo nights, quizzes and tea parties. These offer great opportunities for our residents to connect, laugh and make memories. Our residents also like to get involved with the entertaining, and many can be found having a sing-a-long with our karaoke machine.

We’ve developed strong links with many members of our local community and as a result, we are able to give our residents opportunities to visit local churches, schools and nurseries. Our neighbours are kind and considerate, and take great pleasure in forming connections with our residents.

We like to ensure that we have a main form of entertainment scheduled weekly, with our Activity Coordinators also organising events in the home and day trips throughout the week.

We put great effort into getting to know our residents on a personal level to ensure we can accommodate their every need.

No matter how much our residents wish to participate and socialise, we have a wide range of 1:1 and group activities to choose from. We listen intently to the needs and interests of our residents and always welcome suggestions for new activities.
