Daily life at Brook Court is all about keeping active, making new friends and enjoying fulfilling activities. We’d love you to join us.
The team at our Kidderminster care home is passionate about supporting your loved one to continue doing the things that they’ve always enjoyed, as well as trying something new. You’ll find Brook Court residents playing board games, keeping fit, enjoying a pamper session, or sipping a favourite tipple at the end of the day.
Every day’s different at Brook Court
One lady, who is fantastic at knitting, has made blankets for many residents, which has given her a huge sense of satisfaction. Other residents enjoy being the quizmaster at our regular quizzes, or getting out into the sunshine to do some gardening. And our resident dog, Honey, is always happy for a friend to take her for ‘walkies’.
Some residents enjoy cooking and baking, so there are always delicious cakes and dishes being served up at Brook Court – often themed around celebrations like Valentine's Day or Chinese New Year.
The magic of music
Is your loved one a music fan? In the past, we have hosted performers and musicians at Brook Court, including choirs and singers who treat us to everything from show tunes to rock ‘n’ roll . We have our own resident and colleague choir and were very proud to sing with pupils from the local school at the first dementia-friendly concert at Kidderminster Town Hall.
Our Facebook page is regularly updated with photos of what residents have been up to. You can ‘like’ the page to stay in touch with what residents and the team are doing.
Our care home is all about community
Residents have formed some lovely friendships with pupils from local primary and nursery schools and we can’t wait to welcome them back. Residents and pupils have made bird feeders and food for the annual RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. Residents have watched the children’s dance festival and are often asked to judge school competitions.
Brook Court residents are also enthusiastic fundraisers for national and local causes, such as Dementia UK and Macmillan, and our local food bank.
Whilst this isn’t possible right now, residents love to go shopping, visit local attractions, football matches, and getting together with friends in other Care UK homes for parties and barbecues.
