Living at Bowes House care home is all about enjoying each day in the way that suits you.
We believe in supporting every resident to enjoy a meaningful lifestyle - encouraging them to do whatever brings them meaning and joy.
Something different each day
Our lifestyle team plans daily group and one-to-one activities designed around residents’ interests and hobbies. Each day is different, with everything from baking and gentle exercise to music, arts and crafts, gardening, games and quizzes.
We appreciate that some people may prefer more tailored time rather than group activities, so there's always time to do whatever activity your loved one would like with them on a one-to-one basis with one of our lifestyle team, from a pamper session to a stroll in the garden, reminiscence or a shopping trip.
Some residents enjoy the sense of routine and independence that comes with helping around the home. We help residents continue the activities and hobbies they love – they might enjoy planting in the garden for example, or working alongside the maintenance team on DIY.
Part of the community
You’re welcome to visit your loved one at Bowes House whenever you wish, and there's often someone popping in to the care home, including visiting entertainers, school groups and therapy animals. We’ve even set up a group called the Friends of Bowes House and members come along to use our facilities, including our cinema, hairdressing salon and coffee shop, and they get involved in our social events.
Getting out and about
Everyone enjoys a change of scene, so we make sure that we get out and about around the local area as often as possible. Hailsham, and the surrounding area, is steeped in history so there’s plenty to explore on our doorstep, including seaside towns, museums, garden centres and lunches in cosy pubs!
