Activities Programme

Residents at Oakdene Care Home, we believe, should be able to make the most of every day of their stay here with us. Our dedicated team works incredibly hard to provide our residents with a variety of options so that residents have all they need to live a full and varied life. We encourage all residents to keep doing exactly what makes them happy, whether it’s reading in the garden or participating in a competitive game out on the bowling green.

Weekly events like sing-alongs, baking, and movie days are planned by our Activity Coordinators to be both exciting and accessible for all of our residents. For those with memory loss, our Activities Program offers a variety of activities and alternative therapies, such as memory boxes and reminiscing. We also organise a number of excursions to local attractions and have excellent contacts with the community.

Every day, we work to create an environment in which residents can create positive and enduring memories. We value our residents’ capacity to make choices and manage their own lives, and we endeavour to provide them with as much autonomy as possible. Thanks to our skilled Activity Coordinators, residents have numerous opportunities each week to participate in a variety of exciting activities, either alone or in a group environment.
