Immacolata House share their fun packed summer of activities…
At the heart of all our care homes is a dynamic and varied activity programme for all our residents. At Immacolata House in Langport, our residents have undoubtedly been enjoying a fun-packed summer so far.
Art fans in the home have been getting creative with painting and bringing the outdoors in with flower plate making. While music fans have been enjoying and taking part in regular live performances from six different entertainers; Matt Rock, Flashback Theatre, Karaoke with Chris, King of cool, John and the general and Singing for therapy.
Music allows our residents’ to express themselves and unlock fond memories.
In addition to activities inside the home, residents have likewise been enjoying trips out within their local community, and further afield, such as their weekly involvement with Langport Area Dementia Action Alliance. Every Monday they meet either for ‘Monday music’; A morning of music at High Ham Village Hall, gathering for a cup of tea or coffee, cake and a chat. ‘Monday Meander’; a gentle walking group. Then ‘Monday Mix’; an informal get together to meet people, share experiences, make friends and during term time, pupils from High Ham Primary School join in.
They also enjoyed visits to the Glenda Spooner Farm, World Horse Welfare’s Rescue & Rehoming Centre in Somerset and Forde Abbey RDA Carriage Driving Group. Taking the reins, residents lead their horse and carriage around the extensive and beautiful Abbey’s parkland.
