Care home goals - Horsham care home launches new games room

March 18th 2021

A Horsham care home has unveiled an exciting addition for residents - a brand new games room.

The new room at Care UK’s Skylark House care home, on St Marks Lane, features a table tennis table, football table, archery board and basketball hoop.

Skylark House new games room_0The idea of opening a games room came about after residents started sharing their memories of playing ping pong and other games with their grandchildren. After consulting residents on which items they’d like to see, team members got busy creating a fun space.

Many residents also helped design the room by choosing decorations that were meaningful to them. Two residents and football fans contributed flags from their favourite teams, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, while a California state flag was put up for another resident who was has some great memories from there.  

Donald Young, a resident at Skylark House, said: “I love this room, I can finally play ping pong again, and I’m good at it!  It feels like going to a sports hall and having fun again”.

Dorota Woloszyn, Home Manager at Skylark House, said: “We are thrilled to launch our games room for residents to enjoy. Every resident has helped design different elements of the room, so there really is something for everyone.

“Here at Skylark House, we want residents to live active and fulfilling lives, by reconnecting with old hobbies or developing new ones. Converting a room into a games room is the perfect way to encourage residents to reminisce while enjoying a game of tennis table or two.

“Now we’re looking forward to setting up a games tournament and creating many happy memories in our new room!”

Skylark House has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full-time residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as short-term respite and palliative care.
