Activities at Avenue House

At Avenue House our person-centred Monthly Diary of Events programme has
been designed to suit the needs of the residents living in Avenue House. We are constantly
developing the Activities due to the direct feedback from our residents at our
monthly residents meeting and Diary of Events Planning Meetings which enables our
residents to take part in existing hobbies as well as trying new tasks that aim
to stimulate creativity, intellect, physical ability and improve wellbeing.
With music groups, pub outings, cooking, gardening, one to one time,
entertainers, quiz’s, bingo and more, there is never a shortage of things to
do.

We also have external providers who visit the home such as Aubrey who is
available every Thursday for hair appointments, a visiting Chiropodist every 6
weeks, as well as Weekly Meeting for Worships and Monthly Holy communion and
Friday Fellowship.

We are always open to new suggestions, so if you do have any, our activities
Co-Ordinator Karen will always be happy to listen.

February 2024

“Away in a meadow all covered with snow

The little old groundhog looks for his shadow

The clouds in the sky determine our fate

If winter will leave us all early or late.”

September 2023

The golden-rod is yellow; The corn is turning brown; The trees in apple orchards With fruit are bending down.

The gentian’s bluest fringes Are curling in the sun; In dusty pods the milkweed Its hidden silk has spun.

The sedges flaunt their harvest, In every meadow nook; And asters by the brook-side Make asters in the brook.
