Events and activities

Loxley Court care home offers a wide range of activities. 

From organised group events such as trips out or entertainment to ‘ad hoc’ individual outings on request, or where we feel an individual might benefit from time away from the home.

We employ an Activities Team of three staff who arrange one-to-one and group activities and visits from entertainers. Activity preferences naturally vary between individuals, our activity co-coordinator endeavours to accommodate particular interests or talents.

One person’s love of singing may lead to the organising an afternoon concert; a lifetime of breeding Labrador retrievers could result in regular visits from a dog and its owner. The more we get to know a person, the more we can make their lives active, fulfilling and full of fun.

People will often suggest or develop their own activity ideas, whether to celebrate a special occasion or mark a significant event. Staff work with our ladies and gentlemen to develop and plan activities around a theme, from shopping to group craft projects.

Hobbies and interests

We encourage people to pursue their own interests, whether on an individual basis or in small groups. Gardening is popular, but we also run craft and painting sessions, knitting and sewing circles.

Many people revisit hobbies they have pursued in the past, while others take up new pursuits, perhaps because the extra support available makes them accessible. Families are often surprised by the new interests their loved ones take up and the vitality they develop in their new home.
