Events, Activities & Trips

Elderholme’s policy on “Therapeutic Activities” takes into account the resident’s interests, skills, experiences, personalities and medical condition. The home offers a wide range of activities designed to encourage mobility and most importantly take an interest in life.

Staff encourage and, in certain instances, help residents to pursue their hobbies and interests.

We have our own mini-bus and we utilise volunteers from the community to help with activities and outings.

A board of trustees continues to meet every month donating their time and experience in the same spirit of generosity that marked the founding of the charity.

Elderholme continues to serve as an integral component of the regional healthcare network, working closely with local medical practices, hospitals and councils to ensure that the most suitable option is found for the needs of local residents.
