In keeping with your abilities we aim to have you enjoy the sort of lifestyle that’d you’d have been living at home. Some of the activities are cards, bowls and arts & crafts as well as an extensive musical programme. There is also ample scope to get ones hands dirty in the raised planting boxes of our beautiful kitchen gardens.
Additional to our weekly activities calendar, twice a year, Orwell Private has a fully heated marquee so all families can visit and enjoy the seasonal entertainment.
For dog lovers, we have our friendly in-house therapy dog, Fergie, who is one of the biggest hits among residents.
Our Men’s Shed is an ideal location for our male residents to hang out. All residents can also hone their golf skills on our putting green, or help out in our beautiful gardens, if they’re up for it?
We encourage outings of all descriptions, and we’re happy to listen to any requests from our residents in terms of organising visits to the locality and further afield. Afterall, we have our own wheelchair accessible minibus so we like to make the most of it. The minibus is also available to families for short trips which has become popular in recent months. Simply contact Reception to organise.
We welcome residents of all denominations, while respecting and facilitating local church visits. Where possible , Orwell Private & Orwell Queen of Peace holds weekly in-house religious services.
