Everything we do is person-centred, including our range of daily activities
All activities are based on the interests, desires and wishes of our residents. The examples below are but a few of those featured at our homes. We seek to cater for all residents requests – after all, we are here for them.
Tai chi and light exercise
At Signature our residents are encouraged to join stimulating classes such as tai chi. Residents and guests of varying levels of flexibility meet in the lounge or activities areas, with assistants on hand to help provide encouragement and support where required. Exercise and in particular tai chi classes have been proven to stimulate both body and mind, increasing mobility and benefiting circulation.
Cream tea Friday with musicians
Our residents love music and singing. We have a range of musicians catering for different musical tastes, from opera to country music. Cream teas and cakes are often served while our residents enjoy a sing-a-long!
Flower arranging and gardening club
Gardening and in particular flower arranging are great for hand-eye coordination, with the smell of the flowers, herbs and plants always refreshing and stimulating. Flower arranging in particular is always a lovely and sensorial experience for all involved, and very much a social occasion.
Each of our communities holds a range of day trips. Our residents often enjoy anything from a day at the local seaside and shopping trips to evenings at the theatre. We encourage residents to suggest places of interest for us to visit and we look to accommodate all popular requests.
Featured TV and sporting events
While all residents have television access within the privacy of their own room, our communities often like to make a feature of popular national events such as the Grand National, FA Cup Final and Olympics. Some of our male residents enjoy nothing more than a nice drink watching the football. Each community also has at least one film afternoon or evening every week, when a popular or requested film is screened in the lounge or activities room.
The wide range of other activities on offer at Signature homes currently includes: live entertainers, book club, guest speakers, quiz nights, race nights, film club, card games, board games and much more. Contact your local Signature home to arrange a visit and come see for yourself.
