Activities at Hill House are truly a family concern. We welcome the resident’s families, and friends, to get involved.
At Hill House we offer a varied activities programme. We employ 3 full time activities co-ordinators to provide a varied and interesting programme 7 days a week. We also support residents so they can pursue their own interests and hobbies independently.
A lively programme means there is usually something going on most mornings and afternoons, including the regular and popular activities of outgoings to Fleet, Farnham and Hartley Wintney for shopping, garden centre coffee mornings, fish and chip lunches, theatre trips and visits to the local pub. Residents are encouraged to contribute their own ideas to the programme through monthly resident’s committee meetings and a questionnaire that they complete every 6 months.
Each year we take drives out to see the snowdrops, blue bells and autumn leaves. We also go to the seaside, go on canal boat trips, and take many one – off outings to places of interest. The activities programme includes the poetry club, singing, gardening, bingo, card making, the giant crossword, and wine tasting.
We have local musicians who come and perform for us – a mixture of classical, jazz and old time. We visit the local theatres regularly and old time musical concerts are a favourite too.
We have regular visits from the chiropodist and the beautician. The hairdresser also visits once a week and appointments can be made with her. The local Vicar visits to give monthly communion, and we have a local church group who come once a month to give bible readings and sing some favourite hymns.
Some residents are able to regularly attend local churches as well as their favourite clubs and day centres.
We provide rooms which people can book for parties or can organise parties for residents.
We have no formal visiting as families and friends are encouraged to visit whenever they can.
