Activities Programme & Entertainment

We think that residents at The Ashton Care Home should be able to get the most out of every day of their stay. Our devoted team strives to provide a range of choices so residents have everything they need to enjoy a rich and diverse life. Whether it’s reading a book in the garden or participating in an Arts & Crafts session, we encourage all residents to keep doing exactly what makes them happy.

Our Activity Coordinator plan weekly activities that are both stimulating and accessible, such as sing-alongs, baking and movie days. Our Activities Programme provides a variety of activities and alternative therapies for persons with memory loss, such as memory boxes and reminiscing. We also organise numerous excursions to popular attractions in the Leicestershire area and have fantastic relationships with the local community.

Stimulating Activities For All

We strive to create an environment where residents are able to experience positive and memorable memories every day. Our Activity Coordinator provides residents with opportunities each week that allow them to participate in a variety of engaging activities, either individually or in a group setting. We value our residents’ ability to make decisions and manage their lives as much as possible so that they can live as independently as possible.

We regularly invite Entertainers such as singers and musicians into our home, to entertain both residents and staff.
