We are proud that our Excelcare homes are as unique as the individuals who live with us.

This is because, aside from each home having a range of different areas in which to spend time, our teams are skilled at personalising activities and ensuring they are based on people’s life histories, likes, dislikes, preferences and cultural and religious beliefs.

We truly believe in every day being a day well lived, where people feel safe, happy and valued. 

For some, this may be taking part in something as simple as helping our team to lay the tables for mealtimes, folding the laundry, delivering newspapers within the home or looking after our resident pets.

And for others, it is having the opportunity to rekindle a favourite hobby from years gone by, or to try something new – safe in the knowledge our caring team members are there to provide support and encouragement, helping to build self-confidence and feelings of achievement.

We recognise that some people choose to spend their time with team members in 1-2-1 activities while others prefer the livelier atmosphere of a group. Ultimately, we appreciate and respect each person as an individual, which forms a part of our commitment to provide a person-centred experience for everyone. 

Excelcare-Wellbeing-Activities-Inside-Image.jpgWe are also very conscious many people are worried about losing their independence and sense of community when they are considering a move into a care home. 

This is why we organise regular visits to our homes from community groups, entertainers and schools as well as gathering the views of the people who live with us, to arrange day trips out to places of interest. 

Depending on people’s interests, this may include popping to the local pub for a drink and some lunch, taking in the fresh air at the seaside or pottering around a local garden centre.

At Excelcare, we are dedicated to supporting individual choice about how and where to spend time, creating moments in which to laugh, have fun, relax and be happy.

It is our dedication to providing high quality, innovative activities and occupation that has seen us invest in our central Lifestyle and Innovation Team. The team provides ongoing support and direction to our care home team members – sharing best practise ideas and facilitating a number of national and local partnerships. These partnerships provide additional opportunities for residents to get involved in a range of therapeutic services, such as music, creative arts and craft-based activities.
