We believe that everyone, even if they're living with dementia, can still make decisions about how they want to live their life.
Variety and choice are central to the care we provide at Highbury New Park. We will involve you and your loved one in planning and regularly reviewing their care. Your loved one can choose what time they get up and go to bed, what they’d like to eat and when, and the activities they’d like to do.
Different activities every day
Our varied programme of group activities is based around residents’ interests, so there’s something for everyone, from art and craft sessions, to games and quizzes, gentle exercise sessions like ‘chair netball’. There are regular trips to the local cinema, picnics in the park, and visits to a dementia café, where residents enjoy dancing and socialising.
If your loved one prefers individual activities, or is being nursed in bed, we always make sure that they get the attention and support they need. We’ll happily do any activity that they want to do, whether it’s a manicure or hand and arm massage, or a reminiscence session.
During COVID, we’ve done our best to keep life as normal as fulfilling for residents as we can. That’s included adapting activities, such as sports and exercise, so it’s socially distanced and safe, and using home tablets to bring entertainment into the home and stay connected by new means.
Enjoying good food
Everyone looks forward to mealtimes at Highbury New Park. Our chef knows every resident’s preferences and dietary and cultural needs, and creates tempting dishes for residents to enjoy. Menus are regularly updated in line with residents’ feedback, and if your loved one fancies something that’s not on the menu, we’re always happy to cook it especially for them.
