We have an activities coordinator who is responsible for arranging a monthly programme of events to keep our Residents entertained, active and stimulated. Activities are varied and include;
Visiting musicians (featuring classical to popular music from the 40s onwards)
Visiting animals for our Residents to interact with
Visiting pupils from local schools who enjoy interacting and playing board games with our Residents
Memory stimulation games such as trivia quizzes, memory box sessions, crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, giant scrabble and card games
Croquet and Boules on the lawn
Visiting guest speakers
Occasional trips out to local attractions or the village pub
Families and friends are encouraged to visit as regularly as possible and visual contact by Skype and Facetime is a wonderful way to maintain contact and swap news.
Our annual garden party is the highlight of the year at Millbrook House. It is always well attended and supported by residents, their families and friends. The gardens fill with visitors enjoying cream teas.
Christmas is always a particularly special time at Millbrook House. We encourage family and friends to visit as much as possible and to join us for Christmas lunch. Our grand entrance hall becomes home to our wonderful Christmas Tree and the gardens, despite hibernating for the winter, provide a beautiful backdrop for the festive season.
Holy Communion and spiritual journey sessions with the local vicar. We cater accordingly for all religions.
Any suggestions and ideas for future activities will be well received.
