Our activity coordinators ensure that your loved one continues to enjoy lifelong hobbies and even to try something new.

All the group and one-to-one activities that we organise at Sherwood Grange are tailored to residents’ interests and hobbies, so the options are endless. Typical activities include news quizzes, gentle exercise to music, sing-alongs, gardening, word and general knowledge games, reminiscence and chatting to local schoolchildren or watching visiting performers.

Animals are always popular with residents, so we invite local pet therapy animals along for a cuddle too. We invite residents’ suggestions for activities and we love making them happen.

Enjoying a change of scene

It’s always good to get out and see new people and places, and we aim to do that as often as we can. We’re very lucky that Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common are on our doorstep, and that world famous attractions like Hampton Court Palace and Kew Gardens are only a few miles away from the care home. They’re bound to become popular destinations for outings.

In the summer, the riverside cafés, pubs and restaurants of Richmond and Kingston may prove irresistible, and keen gardeners will love the fact that the Royal Horticultural Society’s gardens at Wisley are just a short drive away from our Kingston Vale care home.

Chef-designed menus

Everyone looks forward to meal times, and our chef-led catering team at Sherwood Grange serve up tasty, tempting and nutritious dishes made from fresh ingredients. As well as catering for all tastes, diets and cultural requirements, they lay on plenty of choice, as well as snacks and treats for morning coffee and afternoon tea.

We mark annual events, like birthdays and anniversaries, and national days and celebrations – from Chinese New Year to Halloween and Christmas – with parties, themed meals and sweet treats. What’s more, if a resident is keen on baking and wants to continue with their passion, we don’t mind. Particularly if everyone gets a slice of cake to enjoy!

Health and wellbeing

Your loved one’s health and wellbeing is always our priority, and the care and clinical teams at Sherwood Grange care home are committed to ensuring that residents stay happy and healthy. We have already started to build links with local health centres and GP surgeries and we make sure that a range of healthcare professionals visit the home on a regular basis, including physiotherapists, opticians, dentists, occupational therapists and audiologists.
