The Gables is a special home and we want all of our residents to lead a interesting, independent and fulfilled life doing what makes them happy. We organise fun activities and games twice a day which anyone can join in and we spend one-to-one time for support or companionship if that is preferred.
Our activity sessions include bingo, arts and crafts, sitting basketball, sitting exercises singing, reminiscing, boules, play your cards right, brain games and many more. We also have quite a few outside entertainment acts visit us when the weather is nice or there is an occasion. We aim to provide activities where people feel free to join in and participate in their hobbies and pastimes if they wish. We try and tailor our organisation of events to best match the various abilities of our residents and we always welcome new ideas to add to our entertainment sessions.
The Gables has it's own beauty salon if residents feel like getting their hair or nails done or just being pampered for a while.
We arrange Christmas and summer fayres where we encourage local crafts people to come and set up stalls. This is a great opportunity for relatives and friends to join the residents for a fun family day.
Everyone is welcome to take part in any of the organised activities. We have something happening almost every day - check the notice board for the latest events and come along. Newspapers, a mobile shop and a library are also available at the Gables.
We have two cats, Oliver and Cutie who provide the residents with comfort and company all day. We also have a large collection of Koi in our fishpond and bird feeders in the garden for the enjoyment of all residents.
