Life at Heathfield is very much home from home. We encourage residents to be as active as they feel able and to get involved in everyday life such as arranging the flowers, laying the table or whatever else they feel inclined to get involved with – even helping the chef in his kitchen, if they wish!
We also have a varied, organised programme of activities, which includes arts and craft afternoons, an opportunity to reminisce, quizzes, sing songs and regular church services.
The home has a chaplain who meets with residents, their families and friends as appropriate to provide pastoral and spiritual support.
For those who want to hone their skills or learn more, there are various workshops, and for those less able to engage in this way, we provide sensory stimulation through colour, music and movement, to name but three. We encourage residents to be as active as they feel able, whether that means armchair exercises, skittles or going for a walk.
We have an open visiting policy and encourage friends and family to visit at any time. Visitors are also welcome to join the residents for a meal in the dining room or the resident’s own room if they wish.
Our home features a hairdressing salon, and a chiropodist, optician and faith ministers make regular visits. There is Wi-Fi and computer availability throughout the building for those residents wishing to access the Internet, including sending emails or using Skype.
