VARIED DAILY ACTIVITIES
We recognise the importance of people receiving care to engage in activities which are designed to stimulate and enhance their physical as well as mental well-being.
Each week we plan and offer varied daily activities to our residents. In addition to group activities, we also provide one-to-one activities to individuals based on their assessed needs and choice.
Here at Brightside Manor our Activity Co-ordinator provides a vast array of activities to meet individual needs as well as group activities. We aim to ‘match’ the resident’s level of ability and interest with a meaningful activity to suit and offer challenge and stimulation to the individual. Group activities are organised every week day and range from arts and crafts, sing-alongs, reminiscence sessions, board games, interactive games, quizzes, bingo etc. We also have live music performances every weekend. Activities for each week is planned in advance, displayed on a digital screen in house and published on our Facebook Page. Activities for current week is displayed above as a movie. Previous activity schedules are sown on this link as historical weekly posts .
Brightside is also proud to be the founder of the Care Home Network, a local activities’ group in which we host and attend events held at other local care homes including pub style quizzes, parties etc. We also invite the local community to celebrate key events with us including Christmas, Easter, St David’s Day, Summer BBQ etc.
Our local Church visits the home monthly and holds services for those wishing to be involved. This allows our residents to mix with individuals from the wider area of Cardiff in line with feeling like an active member of the community.
