Older residents enjoying life!


05 February 2018

Residents enjoying eventsAt our retirement and extra care schemes, older residents enjoy getting together, whatever the occasion! Our staff are dedicated to providing a great service and love putting on a host of events, activities and social occasions for all to take part in.

Residents have enjoyed everything from quiz nights, music events and afternoon tea, to bingo, crafting workshops and book readings! 

We've had visits from local entertainers, musicians, poets, choirs, schools and youth groups. Our aim is to create a strong sense of community both within our schemes and in the local area too.

Important dates on the calendar are a great  chance to get together and Christmas is no exception.

During Christmas 2017 our retirement service staff put on nearly 90 events for residents in our retirement and extra care schemes across London, Kent, Sussex and the West Midlands. Here's what took place:
  • Festive film showings
  • Bingo sessions
  • Pantomime events
  • Christmas shopping trips
  • Festive raffles
  • Gift hampers and boxes from local youth club
  • Christmas school visits
  • Carol concerts
  • Christmas meals
  • Christmas parties
  • New Year parties
In total, an amazing 89 events and.... too much fun to count!
