Activities and Leisure
It has been shown that engaging residents in activities can and does improve their mental health and well-being and is an integral part of the residential care we provide. At Victoria Care Home we have a qualified and dedicated team, organising a range of activities for the mind, body and soul, from one to one chats to outings and visiting entertainers. The Home is working in collaboration with ‘Oomph’ – Our Organisation Makes People Happy. Staff at Victoria Care Home have been trained to provide safe physical exercise for the residents. The grounds include a planted seating area which is very popular when the weather permits and a secure garden where residents can feel safe whilst enjoying the outdoors.
The home also provides the residents with a hairdressing salon, two welcoming lounges and dining rooms over two floors.
Regular meetings are held with the residents and relatives allows for suggestions and feedback, new initiatives and suggestions are always welcomed.
The Local Area
We have a small park (Thursby Gardens) opposite the main gates, close by is the ‘Weavers Triangle’, Canal and Queens Mill which is a dedicated textile museum. In Colne we have Boundary Mills and ‘Banny’s’ Fish Restaurant, which is very popular with our residents when having a trip out, shopping or just sight-seeing.
The Dining Experience
The home employs qualified Chefs who use locally sourced fresh produce to provide home cooked nutritious food. All specialist diets and cultural needs are catered for.
