Social and Recreation Programme

“I am the drummer in the band! I do everything that I can, which is most things.  I like the atmosphere and enjoy the activities. I get on well with everyone (‘the inmates’ as I call them). Social and recreation helps to develop friendships, my confidence and I get to learn new skills.” Ted, Resident

Our Social and Recreation department is a thriving vibrant environment which is well utilised by our residents. The department is a hub for socialising within the Hospital Home and is run with enthusiasm and passion. Our Social and Recreational department put together an array of daily activities which include music therapy, films, arts and crafts (stencilling, weaving, painting), games (dominoes, quizzes, skittles) and band practice, all of which are designed to care for residents’ emotional well-being and encourage participation and increase social inclusion.

Set within a lively and enthusiastic environment, our Social and Recreational therapists provide the opportunity for residents to develop and express themselves through these activities.
