We offer a wide range of activities for our residents at
Richmond Nursing Home
The monthly activities programme includes activities that are enjoyable, purposeful and age and culturally appropriate for residents and takes into account the residents’ spiritual needs, and facilitates social inclusion in community events.Residents’ clergyman, priest or spiritual advisors are welcome and encouraged to visit at any time. Services are held at intervals depending on the wishes of the residents and are listed on the Activities Calendar. Residents who wish to take part in services or meetings at their local place of worship are encouraged to do so and arrangements are made with their family and friends.We have two Activity co-ordinators in Richmond, allowing us to run a full Activity Programme which includes games, quizzes, arts and crafts, exercise to music, sing-a-longs, reminiscence videos and outings. We also have occasional performances from theatre companies, local choirs and even Irish dancing along with coffee mornings, barbecues and Christmas parties to which relatives are invited. Residents always look forward to the monthly visit from Oscar the dog. This visit is part of the Pets as Therapy charity and provides an opportunity for residents to stroke, hold and talk to Oscar. James is our manicurist and makes sure the residents’ hands and nails are in top condition and everyone enjoys a bit of pampering.Some new activities which have recently been introduced include tasting different fruits and experiencing different smells which help to reinvigorate the residents’ senses. Baking Class on Fridays is popular with the residents and everyone enjoys tasting the finished product. We have some new games such as “Name that Tune” and “Guess the Price”, Balloon Volleyball and Indoor Skittles along with old favourites such as Musical Bingo.
