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.

Social Activities

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 provide 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 Hawksbury 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 anything to do with life at Hawksbury 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.

We do not currently have any cases of Coronavirus at our home. We are still open and able to safely help people move into our care home. However, in order to prioritise the safety and welfare of our residents and staff, our home is now temporarily closed for all visits, unless in exceptional circumstances. We continue to take guidance and advice from the Department of Health and Public Health England.
