Our activities structure our week at Baxendale Care Home.  Let’s take a look at some of the regular activities and events our residents can partake in:

movementMovement to Music – A couple of times a week our residents get to exercise in our main lounge to music.  We have different props which keep the sessions varied.  Bean bags, maracas or in this case, xylophones!


We wouldn’t say our residents are addicted but they certainly do look forward to a good game of Bingo.  We’ve even got our own Bingo machine!




A relatively new feature of our Care Home is our mobile tuck shop.  This makes it more accessible to all our residents and they can request that they can’t see on the trolley.

tuck shopOne slot which does vary a great deal is our arts and crafts sessions.  We can be making themed items for Valentine’s Day one week or painting still life pictures of flowers.still life

We can often be found playing a game of Higher or Lower on the weekend or reading the papers.newspaper
