People we spoke with told us they liked to take part in all different forms of activities that the home provided. We saw the activity program for January 2013. Events scheduled included; Dice Horse Racing, Tai Chi, Poetry, Reiki and Bowling. The manager told us the home had recently employed a previous volunteer to take on the role of Pastoral Carer.
We were told the role involved providing person centred care to support people in their emotional well being and to provide additional support in their day to day activities such as letter writing and clothing care.
