Keeping active and getting the most out of every day is the secret to maintaining independence as we get older.
Priors House care home has an innovative and creative lifestyle team who ensure that every day is filled with individual and group activities. There’s never a dull moment at Priors House!
Choose from an array of activities
There’s a choice of things to do at Priors House, from baking and bingo, to gardening and boules, movie afternoons and arts and crafts. One of our residents runs a dance class and others have given talks on subjects they’re passionate about. And we can’t wait to welcome back our favourite local entertainers.
One-to-one time is important too, and our team have great fun with residents, giving them pamper sessions in the hair salon or having a chat over a cup of tea. One resident is looking forward to being able to attend their church service again, when it was safe to do so.
The lifestyle team are fantastic at getting to know individuals and finding ways to make them smile and feel special, from learning some words in their native language, to playing the piano for an impromptu singalong or sourcing hard-to-find chocolate that a resident enjoyed as a child.
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
Good food is a vital ingredient for enjoying life in a care home, and our chefs plan and prepare delicious meals made from the best ingredients for all tastes and diets. Dining rooms are laid out bistro-style, with beautifully set tables, and residents are supported to eat at their own pace. There’s plenty of choice, and we’ll often theme our menus and activities around events like St Patrick’s Day or Valentine’s Day. Our talented chef also creates incredible cakes for residents’ birthdays.
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.
