Our extensive recreation activities programme is central to day-to-day life at our homes.

We support our residents to carry on enjoying the everyday routines we all cherish. We invest a lot of time and resources into running a programme of regular events and clubs in addition to meeting the individual lifestyle profile for each person living in our care homes.

We have a team of dedicated Activities Co-ordinators within each home, who plan each day based on the lifestyle preferences and abilities of the residents. Each home has a programme of social events and entertainment, taking place both in and out of the homes. These include visits to the theatre, exhibitions, local community events and places of interest. 

We invest over £200,000 a year on social activities and events. Ranging from singing and entertainment, through to bingo nights and summer fairs. We actively encourage family members and the local community to get involved.


We support residents to continue hobbies and pastimes and explore new experiences. Our Activities Co-ordinators work closely with residents, and the wider care team to discuss and plan to meet individual goals and aspirations.

From Summer fairs, to bingo nights, to BBQ’s and line dancing, our programmes offer both fun and experiential moments that bring a real social feeling to our residents and their families, who we actively encourage to get involved.

A typical day in the life at Wellburn homes

Our residents can wake up whenever suits them, and have the option to start their day off with breakfast in the peace and quiet of their own room, or together with the other residents in the dining room. Once the day has started, the daily activities on offer will be in full swing. Our Activity Coordinators work together with our residents, to design a range of activities that offer something for everyone. All of our homes run their own programmes, so across all 14, there's a whole raft of different things going on. Some of the typical morning activities you'll find going on are:

• Baking
• Reminiscence
• Animal visits including ponies and puppies
• Visiting hairdressing appointments
• Manicures and pedicures
• Rookie Golf
• Flower arranging
• Visits from local nurseries and primary schools for Sensory Connexions visits

After a morning of activities, our afternoon programme, will start once all of our residents have had their lunch. Of course, some of the activities on offer will involve day trips, where lunch will be taken out and about or the residents will enjoy lunch out. Here's just some of the things you'll find going on at our homes on any given afternoon:

• Visiting singers and entertainers
• Daytrips out to places such as the seaside
• Tai Chi Classes
• Dance and Yoga Classes
• BBQ’s and Fayres
• Arts and Crafts with Creative Minds
• Virtual Reality
• In-house hobby groups with local community groups

A day packed full of activity options for all to enjoy, doesn't stop in the evening. We like to focus on making our evenings all about socialising and bringing residents together. So after dinner, we have lots of things going on. Such as:

• Cinema evenings in our homes
• Pub themed quiz
• Card games
• Tea Dances
