Care Home Activities: Launching Our Brand New Activities Centre & Wellness Pods!
At Foxholes, we’re passionate about promoting care home activities to maximise resident health and wellness in all aspects of our care journey.
To support our commitment to a healthy and wholesome lifestyle for our residents, we recently launched some exciting new care home activities – including a new activities centre and outdoor wellness pods.
Following the recently introduced Government measures, which permit two people per resident for indoor visits in care homes across England, we’ve been dedicated to keeping spirits high after some long-awaited reunions with family members, by launching a brand-new indoor activity centre.
Designed to promote exercise, social interaction and entertainment, the recreation hub includes a cinema room, library, bar, communications booth, and pool table, providing residents with an array of activities to boost their physical and mental wellbeing.
In addition to the new activity hub, we’ve also built new wellness pods: The Foxholes Oval and The Foxholes Wheelhouse, which have been developed specifically for outdoor visitation and staff breaks and offer views of the horse paddocks and rolling countryside.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult time for everyone connected with Foxholes, particularly for residents who had their regular and highly popular programme of activities restricted during the height of the lockdowns.
Neil, our estate manager, said: “We’re excited to be opening a new activities room and outdoor visitation area at a time where we’re gradually moving away from restrictions. They are our way of saying thank you to our wonderful residents, who have been absolutely fantastic during these unprecedented times. Residents can now spend quality and meaningful time with their family and friends while taking up some exciting new activities, too.
“Whether it’s going to the cinema, library or enjoying a game of pool together, the new centre will provide our residents with new innovative ways to enjoy quality time together with loved ones.”
At Foxholes, we’re delighted to see that our residents are already making the most of our wellness facilities.
