Lyn, our Activities Co-ordinator arranges a number of regular group activities in which residents can choose to participate. These include flower arranging, gentle exercise classes, quizzes, indoor skittles, word searches, crosswords, puzzles, arts and crafts. Scrabble is a popular game for which we use a 6ft x 6ft board. Another popular pastime is Reminiscence when one resident will give a little talk about times gone by that everyone can enjoy and contribute towards.
Two Cedars also provides entertainment with guest speakers on local history, excerpts from shows by the Wimborne Musical Theatre Society, musical performances by Canford School musicians and the Salvation Army, talks from the Towns Women's Guild and other musicians giving piano, flute, guitar, organ or violin performances.
Residents may not always choose to participate in group activities and at times prefer to spend some time in their own room. Our staff are more than happy to provide one to one book or poetry reading, play a game of cards or simply just chat.
A staff member will also accompany any resident who wishes to visit the local church, shops or library or needs to attend an appointment.
Various outings are arranged and regular events include:
