We understand that, when your loved one is doing things they enjoy, in an environment where they feel valued, they will feel secure, happy and fulfilled.
That’s why we find out everything we can about each new resident, so we can personalise their care and experiences to suit their unique needs and tastes. Some Scarlet House residents enjoy the familiarity of routine tasks, such as washing up or laying the table, while others enjoy keeping the gardens blooming.
Something different every day
Our lifestyle team also plans exciting one activities each day, from arts and crafts to our popular ‘Balls of Energy’ exercise class, dancing and music sessions to film showings.
Residents love animals. We now have our own budgie, – Bertie, a name chosen by residents. In the past we’ve had birds of prey to visit, plus spring animals and therapy dogs.
Keeping things interesting
We often theme activities: early on in the year, around the annual RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, we do bird-related crafts, including making fat balls, decorating bird houses or brushing up on our bird knowledge.
Our cinema has become so popular that we now have two film showings a day and we can’t wait to welcome back our friends in the community to join us.
Our residents are passionate about giving back to their local community and good causes as a whole. We have hosted coffee mornings and other events to raise money for charities such as Macmillan and Children in Need.
Our Facebook page is a great way of keeping up-to-date with what’s happening at Scarlet House care home.
Enjoying good food
Great food is always on the menu at Scarlet House. Dishes are prepared from the best ingredients. We cater for all tastes, diets and cultural requirements, and you can expect plenty of choice. Everyone likes to have things to look forward to, so we also plan special menus and treats to celebrate annual events like Valentine’s Day and it goes without saying that we make birthdays and anniversaries extra special for residents.
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.
