Residential Care Activities

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is staying active in a care home so important?

Ensuring residents stay active whilst living in a care home is crucial to maintaining their mobility and independence. Elderly people who are inactive or sedentary for any period of time can rapidly lose muscle, leading to diseases such as heart failure, sepsis and cancer. Exercise also has proven benefits to improve sleep, social interaction, confidence, and mood for residents living with dementia.

What elderly care home activity programmes are provided at Jackson’s Lodge?

At Jackman’s Lodge, we offer a range of care home activity programmes, set to suit the wants and needs of all our elderly residents. Whether your loved one enjoys reading in solitude or playing board games with other residents, there’s something for everyone! Our team actively gives our long-term elderly residents the freedom to express their choices and opinions, catering our care home activities to their passions.

Do care home residents go on day trips?

We understand the importance of promoting independence and freedom in a care home, and therefore love getting out and about with our residents in our local area as much as possible. With its well-known theatres and museums, there’s lots for our residents to choose from in Woking. We also organise regular country walks and shopping trips to allow our residents to feel as though life with us is merely an extension of their life before us.

What is the role of an activities coordinator in a care home?

An activities coordinator is tasked with providing resources and coming up with ideas for engaging, stimulating, and varied activities for residents in a care home setting. At Jackman’s Lodge, our activities coordinator works closely with each new resident to understand their likes and dislikes, abilities and needs to put together an individual care plan which is then evaluated regularly. The role of the activities coordinator is also to engage the local community in the daily lives of residents. This includes contacting local community groups and enabling our elderly residents to partake in and continue with hobbies and activities as desired.

Which activities are best for the wellbeing of residents?

Frequent social interaction and regular participation in creative activities is crucial in maintaining the well-being of elderly care home residents. In 2018, a study by Age UK found here, concluded that activities like dancing, playing a musical instrument, visiting museums, photography, singing and painting are more popular among older people who are in good health and have friends to do things with.
