Day care and activities at Dunsland House

Activities are given a high priority at Dunsland House. A holistic approach is taken to ensure our residents enjoy the best possible quality of life. We provide a wide range of activities and always ensure that residents are given the opportunity to get involved as much or as little as they like. All of our staff are involved in many of the activities through planning and participation.

Currently, we invite Franz Hepburn, a talented bass baritone singer, to the home on a monthly basis. He is a personal favourite of many of our residents!

Caroline, our Head Chef, also puts on regular cooking activities for all of the residents. Some of the recent hits have been making cookies, cupcakes, baking bread and making jam.

Putting activity at the very heart of care

A varied programme of activities is prepared and designed to provide entertainment, exercise and stimulation at Dunsland House. We provide sensory sessions, arts and crafts, bingo, puzzles, fruit tasting and gentle exercise classes.

A visiting chiropodist and hairdresser are arranged for personal treatments. Church visits can also be arranged on request, as well as delivery of newspapers and magazines.

Small group visits to the local shops and garden centres are encouraged. We also run special “Theme Nights” to celebrate events and holidays, like Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night.

We try to meet individual requests for things like church visits, pet therapy, singing and arts and crafts as much as we can. Many of our events are recorded through photography and film.
