As we say goodbye to 2017 and welcome in the new year, we have reminisced with a few highlights of the fantastic time’s we have had – whilst remembering, time flies when you’re having fun!

We have:

-Played Bingo 98 times!
-Baked our own cakes
-Celebrated strictly come dancing finals!
-Participated with indoor games
-Had a sing-a-long with Pete Prescott 12 times!
-Jasmyn had her baby Reggie who gives us regular visits!
-Continued to keep active through motivation
-Obtained a food hygiene score of 5

2017 has been a year of introducing new activities to the home, including an afternoon of magic, cake baking, arts & crafts, and film afternoon’s. Idea’s for new activities are always welcome at Eridge House, weather they are initiated from our residents themselves, staff, or family and friends. We encourage residents to take part in our daily activities, although we understand that a quiet afternoon can never go a miss so we offer a wide range of activities that you can take part in, in the comfort of your own room! These include personalised crosswords, adult colouring and puzzles.

A Skype service is now available at Eridge House to enable our residents to speak to their loved ones no matter how far they are!

As always, we had another fantastic Christmas Party with one of our regular singers – Pete Prescott. A sing-a-long and dance is extremely popular at Eridge House, especially when the festive celebrations kick in! We hope everybody had a fantastic Christmas Period and from all of us at Eridge House, we wish you a Happy New Year!
