Activities form the basis of daily life and at Grosvenor House we firmly believe that the body and the mind are very closely linked. Keeping the body active, even for those who are perhaps less mobile than they once were, can also do wonders for their state of mind.
As such, we have a full time experienced activities coordinator who provides frequent events, outings and occasions for residents, their families and friends.
We aim to encourage every resident to continue to maintain their interests, to incorporate their hobbies and to enjoy their leisure time. We also encourage carers to spend time with residents participating in one-to-one activities throughout the course of the day.
