Here at Shawcross Care Home, we understand the benefits friendships can have on health and wellbeing therefore, we promote maintaining and making new friends.
Our carefully thought out activities programme is designed for our residents to work on their individual and group skills. Through these activities, we have seen many new friendships blossoming.
Games such as bingo buddies and dominoes are very popular in our home, residents team up to compete for prizes. This creates a friendly competition, which is exciting and fun.
Residents and the team have also created a special bond and enjoy chats in the garden, café visits, community lunches, and in true Shawcross style, enjoy singing and dancing activities together!
We also love relaxation time, many residents enjoy this in their one-to-one sessions with a team member or peer groups. This is a time to reflect and get to know residents on a one-to-one level. Residents can also enjoy family time in the lounge space or garden area as the weather is getting warmer.
Whether you’ve just met or you’ve known each other for years, friends are so important for everyone – don’t forget to check up on yours!
