Life at Woodland Hall is all about keeping active and enjoying every day.
We welcome residents to be involved in everyday tasks in any way they want to – it’s part of our commitment to Activity Based Care. Some residents like making tea and others enjoy laying the table for meals in our dining rooms. We also have a residents’ baking group and many of our baked treats use hand-picked fruit from our garden.
Activities for everyone
As part of our tailored care approach, we have a wide range of individual and group activities including art and drawing, baking and visits from professional musicians and entertainers – all based on residents’ interests and hobbies. Residents particularly enjoy visits from animals, such as dogs, cats and rabbits.
Our large secure gardens, including a sensory garden, make gardening a favourite activity at Woodland Hall care home. Residents enjoy creating special garden displays to mark big occasions, and we also love to spend time outside for barbecues, afternoon teas and just relaxing in the sun when the weather allows.
We try to get out and about as much as we can too, whether it’s lunch at a nearby garden centre or visiting Bushey Park. We also plan longer trips, including days at the seaside at Southend-on-Sea.
Enjoying good food
Meal times are sociable occasions at Woodland Hall. On special occasions, such as a resident’s birthday, we like to celebrate in style by making them a special cake and throwing a party.
We also throw two fantastic garden parties each year, when care home residents, their families and friends, all of the team here and people from the local community, get together and have a great time.
Services and support
A GP comes to Woodland Hall twice a week and a psychologist and dietician pop in regularly. The consultant psychiatrist visits residents once a fortnight and a chiropodist calls in every six weeks. We’re always happy to arrange any other healthcare appointments that residents need.
We have a hairdresser in our salon once every two weeks and the mobile library stops by whenever we ask. A member of the nearby Catholic church visits fortnightly and another local church holds a service here once a month.
Woodland Hall - part of the community
At our care home in Stanmore, we enjoy the support of a wonderful group called 'Friends of Woodland', whose members are relatives of current and previous residents.
We often have visits from local students who enjoy talking with residents and taking part in some activities in the home.
