The team at our care home near Colchester offers a variety of socially distanced group and one-to-one activities, tailored to your loved one’s interests.
We understand the importance of social contact and encourage residents to mix in socially distanced groups within the home and garden. There's plenty to do at Silversprings, whether you like to relax or take part in the busy lifestyle programme. Our dedicated lifestyle team work hard to produce a weekly activity planner includes chair-based exercise, a reminiscence session, puzzles and quizzes, a coffee morning, a pamper session, movie time and creative sessions.
We understand that some people prefer individual activities, so we always make time for residents one-to-one and support them to do an activity of their choice – or simply to sit and have a chat and a cup of tea.
We love being outdoors – and animals
With our amazing grounds, we also have the space to be able to care for some of our own animals. Residents enjoy feeding the ducks on our duck pond and they love to admire our visiting peacock, Percy. We have our own quail too, as well as budgies, a tortoise and a home dog, Archie. Residents are in their element when they’re caring for them.
Enjoying delicious food every day
Our Head Chef creates menus using the freshest ingredients, designed around residents' favourite dishes. Residents choose what they would like at each meal, and can enjoy seconds or thirds if they wish! We cater for different cultural and religious needs, as well as special diets. There's always an array of tempting homemade cakes and biscuits available throughout the day.
