Activities to engage and enrich

We want your loved one to lead a fulfilling and enjoyable life. Our close-knit staff teams provide a resident-orientated, needs-led service. This means every resident has an individual care plan, tailored specifically to meet their preferences and needs. Each care plans is frequently re-evaluated, to enable your loved one to lead a fulfilling and enjoyable life, giving you peace of mind.

We recognise that pastimes, outings into the community and the widest range of activities are vitally stimulating. We have two Lifestyle Co-ordinators, who usually cover seven days of each week, ensuring there is always something tailored to resident’s preferences, whether a trip to the library, local garden centre, individual one-to-one pastimes, a manicure or a crossword.

"The dedicated team at Sherwood provided such great care and an ethos that is hard to find in similar establishments. So often elderly people are written off & left to their own devices for hours on end. You all strive to get people back to a decent quality of life and also keep people engaged, it’s tireless work and takes such a huge amount of dedication."
