Keeping our residents active and independent is at the heart of life at Hadrian House.

It’s also central to the roles of our activity co-ordinators and customer champions. They know what will bring a smile to residents’ faces and get them excited about the day ahead, whether it’s quizzes, crafts, baking, or a trip to the local racecourse, or the famous Metro Centre shopping mall.

Plenty to look forward to

Our activity co-ordinators know how important it is for residents to have something to look forward to. That’s why they’ve created an area in reception dedicated to activities, with photo albums of past events and details of planned activities to whet everyone’s appetite. The residents love to take part in baking, painting, smoothie making, to name but a few. 

There’s always something happening, whether it’s the arrival of the sweet shop trolley, to a visit from the hairdresser, or a professional entertainer popping in to perform for us. We regularly organise outings to places of interest in the local area and weekly church visits. We also make trips to the old cinema, pantomimes and we also welcome the pets as therapy dogs – the residents and their relatives love them.

Something everyone gets excited about is the local Blaydon Races every June. The race actually passes our door, so we enjoy a ‘ring side’ view. Many of our residents have lived in this area all their life, and the race brings back great memories. 

Food, glorious food

Every meal is a big event here. All our dishes are prepared from quality fresh and seasonal ingredients, and our chef regularly chats with residents to find out what they’re enjoying and what they’d like more of.

Responsibility to care

As you’d expect, we have strong ties with local mainstream and complementary health professionals, and a GP, optician, reflexologist and a chiropodist visit us regularly to keep residents fit and healthy. Wellbeing is an important aspect of life here and we hold a weekly pamper day when a nail bar is set up in reception and the hairdresser comes in to help keep residents looking and feeling their best.

Spiritual wellbeing is also vital to some of our residents and we hold a monthly church service here at Hadrian House. We’re more than happy to arrange visits from other faith groups. Several of our residents attend local places of worship with their families whenever they wish to.
