The trained staff and care assistants are dedicated, caring, and hardworking, all with the same goal; ensuring the residents receive the highest quality of care and attention they require, and to ease any anxieties they have, so they are happy and relaxed, and enjoy their time with us.

Social activities and seasonal special events
At The Heathers we strive to keep our residents as active as possible, and do our utmost to keep an ongoing programme of events as variable as possible. This helps to keep the residents amused/occupied and helps maintain both physical and mental wellbeing. We employ two Activities Co-ordinators who are very popular with our residents. They organise a large variety of external trips and several events within the home throughout the year.

Some of the activities include:
  • Dominoes/Jigsaw Puzzles
  • Bingo (weekly)
  • Accordionist 
  • Playing old time favourites (weekly)
  • Craft making (weekly)
  • Nail painting/Manicures (weekly)
  • Reminiscence (periodically)
  • Karaoke (periodically)
  • Library books monthly exchange
We strive to make seasonal events such as Christmas, Easter, Birthdays etc. memorable events for our residents. We organise fetes, B.B.Q’s etc. at these important times of the year. All monies raised at these events go into a residents fund to give them extra little treats, such as visits on the canal, railway/seaside trips. We are open to suggestions from residents, staff, and relatives to make these trips as successful and enjoyable as possible.

Trips can be anything from visiting a garden centre for as afternoon cup of tea, a drive through the countryside, visits to the beach , picnics etc. We also encourage Relatives of residents to also join their loved ones on these Trips.
