Entertainment & Activities

Living life to the full. Part of the philosophy of care at Downs House and Stroud House is that good care goes hand in hand with a fulfilling lifestyle.

Both Downs House and Stroud House have Activity Co-Ordinators who work hard to ensure that residents enjoy themselves whatever their individual circumstances or challenges and to this end a range of varied activities are organised. They can also provide some one to one support for those unable to join in group activities. We aim to provide at least one activity every day.

Also popular are the regular outings, with visits to a wide variety of places of interest, theatre shows, historical sites, pub lunches, local attractions and much more. With our own minibuses, helpful carers and wheelchairs always on hand, it is possible for all residents to join in and enjoy the opportunities available.

The options on offer to all residents include:

  • Arts and handicraft
  • Musical events
  • Bingo
  • Birthday parties
  • Discussion groups
  • Flower arranging
  • Board games and quizzes
  • Bridge and other card games
  • Film shows
  • Music and movement
  • Shopping trips
  • Yoga
  • Diversional therapy

Sample Activities

We aim to offer a full and varied schedule of activities, with something to suit everyone. Some activities are so popular that they remain a feature of every week but that doesn't mean that we don't regularly introduce new options and ideas to keep things fresh and stimulating. You can see a sample activity schedule for each of our homes here.
