Every day at Abney Court is full of meaningful activities and fulfilling experiences. Each resident lives each day in the way they want.
We get to know your loved one extremely well, using life story books to capture the important details about their interests, hobbies and life history. We use this information to put together care and lifestyle plans that reflect their unique personality and preferences, so that they can enjoy experiences that feel special.
Giving meaning to every moment
We have a talented and enthusiastic lifestyle team at Abney Court. They plan daily group and one-to-one activities that residents love, but it’s important to know that every member of the Abney Court team helps to deliver meaningful moments to residents. A member of the housekeeping team might have a chat with a resident as they put away their laundry, or the chef might chat to a resident over lunch about their favourite foods.
Something different each day
Our activities range from welcoming visiting animals – from Guide Dogs to snakes and spiders – to intergenerational projects with Cheadle Primary School. Music is a big part of our home, with regular entertainment from visiting performers. A recent highlight were the Singing Waiters! If your loved one has a suggestion for a new activity, we’ll make it happen. Our ‘painting to classical music’ sessions have been a fantastic addition, which residents find very relaxing.
If your loved one enjoys the reassurance of routine tasks, they’re welcome to help us do small tasks around the home. Some residents like to make or change their bed or dust their room, while others like to fold laundry or water the plants. We believe that living in a care home is no barrier to doing the everyday tasks that provide a sense of purpose.
Getting out and about
Our regular outings are always popular. Recently residents have enjoyed canal trips, pub outings, trips to garden centres, and we’ve taken the air in Bramhall Park. We also like to ‘do our bit’ for good causes, hosting cake sales and delivering talks for local family carers on different aspects of caring for an older loved one.
Our Facebook page is the perfect way to keep up-to-date with goings-on at Abney Court.
