A hive of activity

At Hollymead House we strongly believe that a good mixture of activities and entertainment is very important. We try and have a nice varied balance of activities that suit different people’s tastes.

It is important to us that all residents can continue to enjoy their favourite activities and maintain the same lifestyle they’ve always had.

We open our doors to new activities and cater for as many interests as we can and with the support of our community setting and outstanding residential care, we make sure that every resident is given the care and support they need.

Outdoor activities

When the English weather is kind, we like to get outside! The first thing we like to do in spring and summer is to provide trips out. Trips in the morning tend to be local ones down to the Lobster Pot for a coffee – a great way to spend the morning looking out to sea, enjoying a drink. Afternoon trips are often further afield and we include the opinions of all the residents when deciding where and what we get up to.

We offer individual bespoke trips where one-to-one attention is offered to make sure we really meet people’s wishes. So if you like museums, specific events or you have always wanted to do something you’ve never done before, it can now happen at Hollymead!

We have a lovely garden, bordered by beautiful rose bushes, which is very popular to sit out in, maybe with a cold drink or a lazy cream tea taken on the garden furniture.
