At The Terrace, we're passionate about supporting older people to live well in later life.
Activities for everyone
Our lifestyle team organises and runs daily activities that are tailored around your loved one’s hobbies and interests, ranging from quizzes and gentle exercise classes to baking sessions and flower arranging – all socially distanced.
We understand that group activities aren’t for everyone, so we spend lots of quality time with individual residents, one-to-one.
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.
At The Terrace, residents are at their happiest when we put on our regular events. Residents play a large part in planning the events and using their creative talents to make things to sell. In the past there has been summer fetes, Easter egg hunts and Christmas fairs.
Our Facebook page is regularly updated with photos of what residents have been up to. You can ‘like’ the page to stay in touch with what residents and the team are doing.
Getting out and about
The Terrace care home is located in a stunning part of the world, and before COVID we have often taken trips out to make the most of our breath-taking surroundings. 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 with the chef for a special ‘foods from around the world’ afternoon where we pick a particular country and sample its cuisine.
Our chef and kitchen team work hard to get to know residents’ likes and dislikes, and plan menus to include a choice of dishes that residents will enjoy. Special diets are easily catered for too.
Drinks and snacks are available throughout day and night; residents can help themselves from fruit juice dispensers or make their own drinks if they wish.
