The entertainment and happiness of our residents is of the utmost importance to all of us involved in the operation of County Lodge nursing home in West Sussex. As a result, the home offers an engaging and varied programme of activities each day, with the most popular being; physiotherapy, pampering, entertainment and afternoon tea and games. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in great hands, and kept busy when they want to be.
As a West Sussex nursing home with a maximum number of 26 residents we can take a more personal approach when deciding which type of entertainment is offered, when activities are provided and whom they would best suit.
Regular fitness and physiotherapist sessions
Regardless of whether or not a resident has received physiotherapy previously, we make it available to all staying at Country Lodge as their health and wellbeing is at the forefront of our priorities.
Stimulating regular movement, however small, is in our opinion, very important and a number of residents and their relatives have thanked us for providing regular exercise sessions. The tailored sessions at Country Lodge are carefully planned to help maintain and often improve the movement, balance, strength and coordination of our residents.
We find that residents who get involved regularly also benefit from;
- Improved confidence
- Reduced risk of future joint issues
- Improved blood pressure
- Increased strength
Both our friendly and knowledgeable physio, Dan and our experienced exercise therapist Sharon, visit Country Lodge on a weekly basis and get to know our residents and their needs very well.
Pampering is important for a lot of our residents and actually proves to be very therapeutic and calming whilst improving their sense of wellbeing. We recognise that personal care and contact is vital for the elderly, so whether it’s just for a chat with our hairdresser Adele or a chance to feel extra fabulous every so often, we love seeing how happy people are after a pampering session.
Pampering at our nursing home West Sussex includes;
- Hairdressing from full perms to trims and styling
- Manicures and pedicures
- Hand and arm massage
- Luxury bath with aromatherapy and jacuzzi
All year round entertainment
We don’t just leave our entertainment for the much enjoyed annual family Garden Party and the ever-popular Christmas Punch & Carols. At our nursing home West Sussex, we keep our residents entertained all year round –with a special treat on birthdays when Chris and Pauline pull out all the stops to bake fabulous birthday cakes – there’s always an excuse for more cake!
Aside from the bigger events mentioned above, our residents’ favourite activities include:-
- The ‘Country Lodge Quiz’ hosted by Dolores and often includes visiting friends and relations
- Bingo, Scrabble and other games with Nikki in the lounge or outside in the garden.
- Theatrical shows throughout the year.
- Music and singing by various local entertainers and musicians.
- Talks and discussions on different subjects with Penny from Creative Talks.
