Our lifestyle team ensures that our group activities are tailored to residents’ interests and hobbies.
Quizzes, music sessions, gardening, and games are among the many socially distanced activities that residents of Ferndown Manor enjoy. Our lifestyle team also spends time one-to-one with residents too, supporting them to do whatever individual activities they’d like to do. Our stringent cleaning protocols ensure high traffic areas in the home are disinfected on a regular basis, and there are hand sanitising stations located throughout the home.
Making wishes come true
At Ferndown Manor we understand that older people still have dreams and wishes that they’d like to fulfil, so we have a small ‘wishing tree’ inside the home where residents can hang their written wishes. Our team then pulls out the stops to make these wishes happen. Individual residents have taken up engraving and even been on the panel of judges for the Care UK Chef of the Year competition. Whatever your loved one wants to do, we’ll support them to do it.
Delicious food every day
Our chef-led catering team understands the importance of eating and drinking well in older age. They serve up tasty and nutritious menus and snacks and cater for all tastes, diets and cultural requirements. We also believe in making food fun, with special themed meals and treats for annual events, birthday celebrations and national days. Despite social distancing, meal times are a sociable occasion at Ferndown Manor. We also offer in-room dining for residents who may prefer to or need additional distancing.
Ferndown Manor has an active Facebook page, with updates and photos of the latest goings-on at the home. You can ‘like’ the page to stay in touch with what residents and the team are doing.
