Keeping our residents happy and full of energy
Hobbies and Interests
We support all of our Residents in their hobbies and personal interests and we aim to make people happy.
A wide variety of activities are arranged after listening to the ideas and suggestions of the residents who live at the Care Home. These are designed to entertain and stimulate and most of all they are fun!
We regularly arrange activities including visiting entertainers, an artist, fish and chip suppers and cookery sessions, to name only a few.
There is something for everyone at Hawksbury House.
We have a wide range of activities taking place in the Care Home throughout each week and we organise excursions to a variety of places.
Our skilled staff provides support for outings to the shops and local venues such as Saltwell Park, Garden Centres, including Fish and Chips at North Shields. We also visit local luncheon clubs and coffee afternoons.
Entertainers often visit the Care Home together with a visiting artist and we have weekly cookery sessions. We arrange regular church services and we also have school children who visit and come and sing with the residents.
On a daily basis, we have exercise classes, reminiscing, beauty, quizzes, and many more activities.
Friends of Hawksbury House
Friends of Hawksbury House is a small team of people who are interested in the Care Home. The group is usually made up of residents, relatives, friends and staff; anyone interested in joining the Friends of Holly House Care Home can just turn up at the meeting. We welcome all new members.
We hold monthly meetings when we discuss a range of matters. When we get together, you are encouraged to discuss, suggest and feedback on anything to do with life at Holly House so that we can gain frank and open views on the care we provide as well as planning day to day life here at the Care Home.
Anything you need to talk about, no matter how great or small; our residents and their families have a chance to share this with our group.
We also plan excursions and activities for the coming months and try to involve as many residents, their friends, and family, so that we can tailor what we do around you and your loved ones.
Spend the time to look at what families have had to say about the time their loved ones have stayed with us here at Hawksbury House.
What a warm welcoming and friendly home. They answer the door with a welcoming smile. The care of the residents is excellent and if there is something wrong with your relative you are told immediately.
The staff are very caring and friendly. What you see is what you get. It is a highly recommended home. My Mother has been a resident here for three years.
