At Stanley Park, we offer lots of engaging one-to-one and group activities for residents, with everything based around their own interests and hobbies.
Living at Stanley Park is about enjoying a fulfilling life. Your loved one will have plenty of choices and they can decide what they’d like to do. To help them to keep independent, and to give them a sense of purpose, they’re welcome to have a small job to do around the home, helping in the garden or doing the washing up.
We also run a wealth of activities. These are based around residents’ existing interests, while giving them options to try something new. Activities include board games and quizzes, cooking sessions and reminiscence talks, sing-alongs, bowls and film afternoons.
Our in-house pub is always popular in the afternoon. Residents enjoy a drink and a chat together while listening and singing along to music. We also have a hairdresser who visits twice a week. There’s a multi-faith service in the home once a month.
Exploring the local area
We're close to local amenities, so residents are often going into town to browse in the shops or have lunch in a pub or café. We often go on trips too, to places like the Northumberland coast, the Beamish Museum, the BALTIC art gallery in Newcastle and the historic city of Durham.
Enjoying good food
Our catering team knows residents’ individual tastes and plans menus to include their favourite dishes. We cater for a range of dietary needs, including modified diets. Meal times are a sociable and relaxing. Our dining rooms are laid out bistro-style, with small tables all beautifully laid up, but residents are welcome to eat in their rooms.
On Sundays, we have 'Teas on Knees', when residents can choose to have their dinner wherever they want to in the home. Some people like to eat in front of the television. If it’s a warm afternoon, other residents like to eat outside.
