Frequently asked questions

Life in a Care UK care home is never dull. Our colleagues aim to make each individual's time with us meaningful, and we’ll support your loved one to live as independently as possible. As well as enjoying fantastic surroundings, our lifestyle team members ensure there is something to do each day – arts activities, animal visits and musical entertainment are just a few of our homes’ favourite ways to spend their time.

Each home team tailors their activities to residents’ interests, hobbies and passions, so every lifestyle programme is different. Popular activities include live music sessions (which often involve singing and dancing), foodie experiences such as themed meals, afternoon tea or cheese and wine tasting and fitness classes like seated exercise or swimming sessions. Learn more about life in a Care UK home.

Most Care UK homes have a wishing tree where residents can hang a wish of something like would like to do. Perhaps they’d like to revive a hobby they once loved, take a trip somewhere they’ve always wanted to go or try something new – whether that’s a new food or a new experience, like skydiving! Our teams go above and beyond to try to grant each wish on their tree, big or small. Read all about our wishing trees.
