There’s something going on every day at Ponteland Manor care home for residents to get involved in.
At our Ponteland care home we believe in supporting residents to continue doing the things they love, and even trying something new. We’re all happier when we’re doing things we enjoy, with people we like, and Ponteland Manor residents are just the same.
Fun and games with friends
Our lifestyle team design all sorts of engaging activities centred on residents’ hobbies and interests, ranging from flower arranging and arts and crafts, to jigsaws, gentle exercise to music sessions. Residents give us new ideas of things they’d like to try, and we do our best to make them happen.
Of course, not everyone likes group activities, so we also spend quality time with residents one-to-one, having a chat over a cup of tea, going for a walk around the garden or having a pamper session with the hairdresser – whatever they would like to do.
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.
Enjoying good food
Meal times are always the main event of the day at Ponteland Manor care home in our inviting bistro-style dining rooms. Our chef and kitchen team work hard to get to know residents’ likes and dislikes, and plan menus to include a choice of dishes that residents will enjoy. Special diets are easily catered for too. Variety is the spice of life, so we often organise themed days, when we serve food from a different country.
Our team support residents to eat at their own pace and as independently as possible. There’s always plenty of food if someone would like seconds, or an extra helping of pudding!
Drinks and snacks are available throughout day and night; residents can help themselves from fruit juice dispensers or make their own drinks if they wish.
We are also able to offer an enhanced in-room dining service with a wide range of tasty and nutritious meals and snacks for those who prefer, or need, additional distancing
