At Greathed Manor, activities and events are an integral part of the lifestyle for the people here. We recognise the importance of a full calendar of activities for elder people - staying active makes a huge contribution to individuals’ physical and emotional wellbeing.
Regular exercise helps a person maintain mobility and strength as they grow older therefore we provide entertaining and enjoyable classes that everyone can enjoy, for example, our sit-down yoga sessions which help our residents maintain and improve their strength and agility in a fun and stimulating manner. These types of movements are not strenuous and they make an enormous difference in helping people remain active and retain their independence.
We combine the physical activities with social activities, we organize events that enable residents to socialize with one another. An active social life is encouraged here and we always welcome families and friends to visit – we recognise how a good social life can positively impact their personal wellbeing.
Our dedicated lifestyle manager and activities coordinators enjoy spending time with residents on a one-to-one basis to chat and find out what they like and dislike. Having this interaction is also very valuable for the families as we can then inform them if their loved ones are happy and getting along with the other residents and staff.
We strongly believe in involving families, and if for whatever reason it isn’t possible to visit your loved one, our dedicated lifestyle team endeavour to connect you through skype or whatever other medium, so that you can be assured that your loved one is living a happy and fulfilled life.
At Greathed Manor, we pride ourselves on providing the very highest standard of care through the combination of modern facilities with traditional family-orientated values - this ethos is extended into the lifestyle of our residents.
From playing the latest games on the iPad to sit-down yoga, we tailor our activities to the preferences of the residents to make their house a home full of fun and memorable experiences.
