Activities

Hello, my name is Claire and I’m the Activities Organiser at Marwood.

My role is to spend time with new and existing residents to find out what they enjoy doing so that tailored activity plans can be devised to meet individual interests and social needs.

We provide an extensive range of activities at Marwood and are always open to new ideas and suggestions.

Daily exercises to music chosen by residents are provided along with activities including

  • Brain training – puzzles, adult dot-to-dots, word-scrambles, mathematics
  • Adult colouring, arts & crafts
  • Crochet & knitting
  • Crossword club
  • Reminiscence group
  • Baking mornings
  • Takeaway tea-times
  • Themed days
  • Movie afternoons
  • Beauty treatments
  • Entertainers
  • Gardening club
  • Excursions

 

We encourage residents to join in at a level they feel comfortable with, even if it’s only observing others participate.

In fine weather, we spend time outside on the patio, sewing flower seeds and ‘grow your own’ vegetables. There is nothing quite like the taste of your own produce which our Cooks transform into a delicious meal.

We have built excellent links with the local community and businesses who support us in our fundraising events and themed days.

We believe that interaction with children keeps residents ‘young at heart’ and are proud to work with a local preschool dance group.
