At Whitebourne, we get to know every person we care for, finding out about their interests, so that we can arrange appealing activities and outings.
We believe that, when a person is doing things they enjoy in an environment where they feel valued, they’ll feel secure, happy and fulfilled. We therefore find out everything we can about each new resident, so we can make their care and experiences unique and special to them.
Every day is different at Whitebourne
If your loved one enjoys the familiarity and reassurance of doing routine tasks around the home – perhaps helping in the garden or doing some dusting – we encourage them to do just that. We have home pets too, which they’re welcome to help care for.
Our lifestyle team organises a variety of group and one-to-one activities for residents and day club members to enjoy too. These can range from quizzes and creative sessions to gentle exercise and reminiscence. We have visits from professional entertainers, such as singers, musicians and theatre groups, and we hold film nights. We’ve even had visits from snakes, birds, pigs and sheep as well as a friendly therapy dog.
In the community
Our Frimley care home is very much a part of the community. Children from local schools come to perform for us on special occasions and we do activities with the youngsters from the local nursery school. We also like to get out and about whenever we can on outings to the coast, to museums and theatres, and on short trips to the local shops, a pub for lunch or to a garden centre.
We also understand that residents like to look and feel their best. A hairdresser visits three times a week, and there are regular visits from a beautician as well as an aromatherapist.
