Care Home Services in Crawley

As one of the top providers of dementia care home services in Crawley, we understand that it isn't enough to just provide a high standard of care, but to also ensure that our residents are sufficiently entertained and looked after.

The home offers a wide and varied range of activities designed to encourage the residents to retain mobility and more importantly to keep an interest in daily living. We employ a dedicated Activities Coordinator who ensures that all our residents are able, should they wish, to participate in a wide range of enjoyable and stimulating activities. Some activities are undertaken in groups whilst some residents prefer a one-to-one session. These activities include:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Painting
  • Jigsaws
  • Music Movements
  • Hairdressing and Beauty Care
  • Memory Lane

Entertainment at Greensleeves Care Home

At Greensleeves we believe that Entertainment is key to a wonderful experience and a joyful stay at our home. We offer a number of activities on a daily basis so that our residents, the people we support, get the right level of social engagement and stimulation during their stay. The activities help individuals self-develop and build themselves even at the later stages of their life’s. Greensleeves is all about creating a community feel around the home, something which can be done through ensuring many parties can participate in the activities we offer, for example we offer specific events where both the residents and their families take part together.

As well as a reoccurring schedule of events, we often also tend to support more specific activities of a more spontaneous nature such as birthday parties. We see these activities as a necessity in order to keep our residents satisfied with their stay here at Greensleeves. As well as the activities we already offer, we constantly look to introduce new activities to our schedule for a fresh form of entertainment. We believe that constant interaction between our residents and the staff encourages bonding and gives the home more of a community-based atmosphere.
