At The Shelley Care Home, we believe that activity should be at the centre of the care we provide. We recognise that our residents need something more than the traditional model of an activities co-ordinator who simply organises quizzes and entertainment, fun though these activities are. Activity is part of daily life. Many residents need to feel usefully and actively engaged in tasks, and welcome the chance to help out in the garden, determine our menus or even chat to the maintenance man about the best way to put up a shelf!
It’s our mission to enable everyone to carry on an active life with as much independence as they are able, or want, to have. We believe that no-one should have to give up a much-loved hobby or interest when they move into a care home. For residents experiencing a form of memory loss certain activities can stimulate and engage them and be very beneficial
