There can be many stigmas attached to nursing homes, and it is often assumed there is a lack of activity and enjoyment within a home. However, as dedicated and experienced professionals in caring, we have seen first-hand the benefits that our residents reap from taking part in various nursing home activities. Here at Stanfield, our welcoming Worcestershire nursing home we place a wide focus on ensuring there is plenty to do around the home. We like to create a feeling of community for all our residents and their families so they can enjoy all occasions together no matter how big or small. It is so important for us to have the involvement of the families who help to create a community of like-minded people who support their loved-ones.
The importance of activities at Stanfield Nursing Home
It is important for residents to stay as active and as stimulated as possible during their time in our nursing home Worcester and we plan a diverse programme of nursing home activities to achieve this. Engaging in enjoyable activities helps stimulate a person’s sensory, emotional and cognitive senses – important functions of the body which should be maintained for as long as possible in life. Equally as importantly however, taking part in these activities benefits residents socially and helps creates friendships and bonds with other residents and the staff which is incredibly important for the overall wellbeing of an individual. We want life to be as fulfilled and as enjoyable as it can be for our residents, which is why we encourage them to keep up with hobbies and interests that they enjoyed before their move to Stanfield Nursing Home – we also support them engaging in new activities too.
Worcestershire Nursing Home Seasonal Activities
Many of our residents at Stanfield nursing home will have come from traditional backgrounds where their communities celebrated seasonal occasions. We want to make sure that Stanfield feels like a home-from-home for our residents so that they can build up the same sense of community and belonging as they had in their previous place of residence. In order to help achieve this, we like to plan seasonal celebrations and activities that residents can take part in and enjoy – for example summer fetes.
Summer Fetes at Stanfield
Our summer fete is enjoyed by the residents, their families and the staff here at Stanfield Nursing Home and is something we are pleased to be hosting again this year. We aim to have many different stalls and activities on the day to encourage as many people as possible to get involved. We have many things lined up already including donkeys visiting the site, our matron heading into the stocks and staff dressing up too. Our summer fetes are always a success at Stanfield each year, and we hope as ever it will provide plenty of happiness and joy for our residents.
