Our team will support your loved one to stay active, engaged and independent. Living at Whitby Dene is all about enjoying meaningful and fulfilling experiences.
We understand that, when your loved one is doing things they personally enjoy in an environment where they feel valued, they will be secure, happy and fulfilled.
Tailored, rewarding activities
Many residents love the wide range of group activities that we provide, from baking and quizzes to art and reminiscence sessions. Others enjoy meeting new people from the local community, from volunteers to schoolchildren – and even visiting animals.
Outings are always popular too. Residents enjoy theatre and boat trips, days at the seaside or at a local nature reserve, or even a quick trip to the shops. Residents often go to a local club to socialise with friends who live nearby.
We understand that group activities aren’t for everyone, so we make sure there’s plenty of one-to-one time if that’s what your loved one prefers. Whether they enjoy a pamper session, a chat over tea and cake, or fancy popping into town, we’ll support them to do whatever they wish.
We often hold community events at the home, from fetes to open days. Take a look at our galleryto see what we get up to.
In the community
A GP visits Whitby Dene twice a week and we will happily arrange any healthcare appointments that your loved one may need – and accompany them if you’re not able to. Many residents take pride in their appearance, so there are regular visits from a hairdresser.
Once a month we hold a Roman Catholic church service at the home. We can arrange other services too, or support your loved one to attend their preferred place of worship.
A home from home
There are no such thing as visiting hours at Whitby Dene. You and your family are welcome at any time – day or night – and you can stay for as long as you wish. Many relatives see Whitby Dene as their second home. Come and have a meal with your loved one, join in an activity or outing, and generally rediscover quality time together. We look forward to seeing you.
