Meet the team
A talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home cooked meals. The freshly prepared, delicious dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences. Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join.
The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on, so hot drinks are available throughout the day.
Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us. Each home has a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.
A daily activity schedule for a home may include:
- Trips to garden centres, cafés, pubs, sporting events, National Trust parks, wildlife parks, aquariums and museums.
- Performances from entertainers
- Coffee mornings
- Art and Craft clubs
- Quiz Nights
- Exercise classes such as Zumba and Thai chi.
- Ice skating
- Opera and theatre visits
- Visits from local petting farms, reptile houses and PAT dogs.
- Local school visits
- Wine and cheese tastings
And that’s not all:
We’ve had silent discos, hoe downs, Chinese banquets, Oscar parties and so much more. Many of the activities feature Reminiscence Therapy to aid those living with Dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.
Each resident receives one-to-one time with the Activities Co-ordinators and together they will work on their own personal activity plan and goals.
Bemerton Lodge is located within a vibrant community, and there's never a dull moment. We run regular activities for all to join in:
- Coffee mornings
- Care Home Open Day
- Summer and Autumn fetes
