Activities

Here at Holmwood we provide a fantastic range of activities for your enjoyment and we are proud to announce that we have recently been shortlisted and given a commendation award in the "Out and About" Category and this was presented by the dignity and safeguarding team at Suffolk County Council.

Holmwood employs an activities coordinator whose job is to ensure that we provide a wide range of activities for your continued enjoyment. Each person who lives at Holmwood will have their activities preferences and abilities recorded in their individual assessment and this will help the staff to ensure that we accommodate your individual needs and wishes. This document will also be regularly reviewed with you and your family. Activities are arranged in groups or one to one sessions, dependent upon your preference. Residents are informed of forthcoming schedules via the "what's on calendar" and the schedule is also posted on the back of your bedroom door. Forthcoming activities will also be posted on our website (click here to see what's on) The types of activities are decided by the residents of Holmwood at the residents association meetings and via satisfaction surveys.

We also supply a regular newsletter to residents of Holmwood and their families and friends and information gathered from our outings and activities is recorded in these newsletters.

Our range of activities varies from regular weekly sessions such as armchair exercises, art class, crosswords, scrabble, word games, church services to craft making sessions.
