At Canterbury Care, we help our residents live their lives to the full. Our dedicated activity coordinators ensure that our homes are abuzz with a full and varied range of things to do each day.
From arts and crafts to flower arranging, gardening to exercise classes there is always something exciting to take part in.
Our activity teams spend time getting to know each resident and their interests. This helps us tailor our activities to ensure that everyone can continue to enjoy their favourite pastimes and find new things to enjoy.
We are proud to have partnered with the UK’s leading wellbeing business for older adults ‘Oomph!’ to enhance the activity offering across our homes.
Having introduced the Oomph On Demand digital wellbeing platform to all of our homes, Canterbury Care residents now have access to a wealth of interactive, educational and virtual entertainment at any time of the day.
During the coronavirus pandemic, Oomph On Demand has enabled our residents to continue to enjoy virtual performances from entertainers and even travel the world from the comfort of their own home with virtual tours. In addition, the platform also offers live-streamed classes from exercise professionals while our usual instructors have been unable to enter our homes.
At Canterbury Care, we believe our residents should continue to enjoy the social aspects of their life and remain connected to their local community. All our homes have strong links with local groups and organisations and often invite them to join our residents for talks, demonstrations and activities.
We know that having your hair done is a much-loved social activity for many of our residents, and all of our homes have hairdressers that regularly visit.
