We are so proud of the varied selection of activities on offer for our residents here at Deeside. Our Activities Coordinators work hard to create an exciting weekly activities programme that includes many of our resident's favourite hobbies, but also things that may be of interest that they haven't tried before.
Just a few of the activities that residents regularly participate in include dominoes, darts, Connect4, Scrabble and knitting.
Residents have the freedom to do whatever they'd like to do day-to-day, whether that's participating in a group activity or sitting quietly reading a book. We also take activity suggestions on board from residents. For example, on a day last week, residents chose to play some board games and a spot of knitting. Residents were delighted with their selection of games and enjoyed a bit of friendly competition, while others participated in a session of knitting who all helped to knit a colourful patchwork quilt.
There are so many benefits to residents joining in our weekly activities programme. It allows them to socialise with others, improve their self-confidence, gain new skills and feel a sense of achievement. Carrying out a task such as knitting or gardening helps to maintain mental stimulation and physical activity aids in overall physical health.
