Animal visits, plays, outings and regular events – it’s all happening at The Terrace.
Activities for everyone
Our regular activities include arts and crafts, gentle exercise, flower arranging and music. Professional entertainers are also often popping in to give a performance.
Anything involving animals is a big hit: We've had visits from a pony, exotic birds like owls and eagles, and even giant insects and frogs - if it squawks, brays, purrs or barks, residents love it!
We also encourage residents to get involved in the day-to-day life of the home in any way they want to - it’s something we call Activity Based Care. Many people like helping out in our greenhouse and looking after our flower beds, or feeding the birds and squirrels that visit the garden.
Residents love any opportunity to share their memories and experiences, and we’re lucky enough to have lots of friendly groups and organisations in the local area who enjoy popping in for a chat, including some of the local school children.
At The Terrace, residents are at their happiest when we put on our regular events, from summer fetes to Easter egg hunts and Christmas fairs. These are always a lovely opportunity to invite family and friends and have a great time. Residents and day guests play a large part in planning the events and using their creative talents to make things to sell.
Getting out and about
The Terrace care home is located in a stunning part of the world, and we often take trips out to make the most of our breath-taking surroundings. We might head off to Richmond Castle, The Bowes Museum, the National Railway Museum or local nature reserves. The Yorkshire Dales and Moors are close by, and there’s always the seaside at Whitby, Scarborough or Saltburn-by-the-Sea – and fish ‘n’ chips all round!
Enjoying good food
Mealtimes at The Terrace are always a sociable occasion and every now and again we all get together for a special ‘foods from around the world’ afternoon where we pick a particular country and sample its cuisine. Our chef welcomes menu ideas and special requests from residents and day guests, and we can also arrange private meals when families come in to spend time with their loved ones.
