ACTIVITIES AT PCNH
When unwell, it is quite important to keep as much mental and physical agility active as possible and, with this in mind, Petworth Cottage Nursing Home has a member of staff specifically assigned to plan and encourage participation in a variety of activities.
From time to time there are visiting groups to entertain and on a regular basis there are planned events, often in line with topical subjects or events.
For example there is a pantomime at Christmas, fireworks in November and during Wimbledon fortnight there is usually a strawberry and cream event. In addition there will be regular bingo sessions and other activities to maintain interest and where possible mobility. Residents are invited to attend all these but there is no compulsion.
Should residents have specific requests we will do what we can to facilitate these such as organising church services or bridge.
We also arrange accompanied shopping trips, particularly at Christmas so that residents can maintain their involvement and interest in the outside world.
