Our Care Staff facilitate Many activities. We actively listen to our residents who participate in choosing activities and new suggestions are incorporated into our activity programme. We are very proud to have developed two world-class and unique care programmes for those with dementia – Namaste Care (four hours daily), a sensory stimulation programme for those with end stage dementia and The Lavender Club (six hours daily), a cognitive stimulation programme in the form of a ‘club’ promoting fun, meaningful activities for those with no/mild/moderate dementia.
The Lavender Club
The Lavender Club promotes well-being and hugely improves the quality of life. The session starts with gentle orientation followed by fun, stimulating, inclusive activities relevant to the individual resulting in a significant reduction in falls as those choosing to go into The Club no longer wander. There has also been some improvement in cognitive functioning and language. Results have been impressive, and the measured quality of life has markedly improved for almost every attendee.
