Churchfield Court Care Home offers a wide variety of activities for the resident to get involved with. The Home’s policy on “Therapeutic Activities” takes into account the service user’s abilities, interests and experience to ensure that they are happy and are afforded choice in what they do.
Staff encourage Service Users to continue to pursue their hobbies, whilst assisting them when necessary. However, staff also respect the choices of the individual, allowing them to choose if, and when, they take part in the activities on offer.
Staff strive to 'pitch' any activity at the right leval for that service user promoting independence but also taking into consideration any physical/mental disabilities which may initially prevent the service user from participating.
Activities are co-ordinated by staff on a daily basis and these include:
Karaoke and music
Past history and reminiscence activities
Beauty Treatments (including a weekly visit from a qualified Hairdresser)
Visits from the mobile library service
Churchfield Court also hosts regular coffee and cake mornings, cheese and wine parties and summer BBQs.
Regular day excursions are also arranged to places of interest. These have included Sandwell Valley, The Black Country Museum, Stratford Upon Avon, Birmingham Sea Life Centre and Nature Reserve.
The Service Users' family, relatives and friends are welcomed to the home and encouraged to visit regularly. Where this is not possible, contact will be encouraged by telephone/letter and staff will offer assistance to all service users wishing to maintain these contacts.
