Our Activities

At Hamilton Park Care Facility, we believe that activity should be the centre of the care we provide.

Hamilton Park Care Facility offers a choice of leisure spaces which provide an opportunity for socialising and recreational activities. We have a dedicated activities team who carry out group activities and one to one activity sessions. Activities vary according to the Residents’ wishes, and are overseen by our Occupational Therapy Department as part of individualised person centred plans. 

Our Residents like to pursue their hobbies in our communal and quiet lounges or indeed in the their own rooms. They watch television or perhaps listen to music or have some reading time. All of our communal areas are used for relaxing, socialising and are great places to invite friends and families when they visit.

We recognise that our Residents need something more than the traditional model of an activities coordinator who simply organises quizzes and entertainment, fun though these actives are. Activity is part of  daily life. Many Residents need to feel usefully and actively engaged in tasks. And welcome the chance to help out in the garden, bake or even chat to the maintenance staff about the best way to put up a shelf.

 

Our approach to activities all comes back to person-centred care and listening to each Resident’s life story, as individual tastes and interest vary greatly. Some people’s activity requirements will be to simply listen to their favourite radio or TV programme every day; some will want top out to a weekly coffee morning at the church hall they’ve been going to for years; some people will want to run the gardening club.

We pride ourselves on our range of activities, designed to suit all tastes. A member of the Activities team meets every new Resident to discuss their social interests – there’s always something going on.
