Daily Activities Programme

Our dedicated team works hard to provide a variety of activities so that residents have all they need to live a full and varied life. We encourage all residents to keep doing exactly what makes them happy, whether it’s reading a book in the garden or participating in an Arts & Crafts session as well as taking on something new.

Our Activity Coordinator plans weekly activities that are both stimulating and accessible, such as sing-alongs, baking and movie days.

In addition, organise numerous excursions to popular attractions in the Balgreen area and have fantastic relationships with the local community.

We place a high value on our residents’ ability to make decisions and manage their own lives, and we endeavour to provide them with as much independence as possible. Thanks to our skilled Activity Coordinators, residents have numerous opportunities each week to participate in a variety of exciting activities, either alone or in a group environment.
