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. All staff are involved in many of the activities through planning and participation.
Currently we invite Franz Hepburn, a talented brass baritone singer to the home on a monthly basis. He is a personal favourite of many of our residents! Please visit our gallery for a preview.
Caroline our head chef also puts on regular cooking activities for all the residents. Some of the recent hits have been making cookies, cup cakes, baking bread and making jams.
Some of our regular activities include:
Sensory sessions Coffee mornings Arts and crafts Singing Puzzles Music Gentle exercise classes Days out including local area of interest
