At Abbeyfield Darlington, we understand the importance of emotional and physical wellbeing within our elderly care homes, and how powerful an affect regular activities can have. We encourage a community-focused, family style of living, which is why we have an extensive activity programme for our residents. We regularly arrange fun trips out for those who live with us; whether it be to the theatre, garden centre, parks, lunch, or one-to-one shopping expeditions. Our care home in Darlington has something for everyone, and we even work closely with the local community! This includes entertainers, theatre groups, artists and volunteers from the local sixth form college.
Keeping active is important to our residents in order for them to remain independent – with Abbeyfield Darlington, they don’t have to venture far to be out in the beautiful nature thanks to our stunning grounds. What’s more, we also offer armchair aerobics which is a great and unique care home activity to help our residents stay mobile.
We are proud to have a fantastic team who are genuinely passionate about caring for the elderly, and supporting their independence within our care home. We’re also not afraid to dress up and celebrate Christmas, Easter, Halloween and birthdays, to name just a few (any excuse for cake!)
