We consider entertainments to be a very important aspect of life at Northwood.
Professional entertainers and various beneficial classes and trips are regularly arranged. Some care providers rely upon staff fundraising or residents and families to fund entertainments, we fund all of our entertainments and we put a great deal of effort into finding a wide and varied range.
We have a residents committee and host residents meetings and have regular surveys, we listen and act on suggestions and residents are invited to sit on interview panels for new staff, which has proven very useful. Two members of our team are also qualified in chair based activities for those with restricted movement.
Nothing is compulsory but if you visit Northwood please ask to see our activities diary. Specialists can also be arranged for visits to Northwood including chiropodists, physiotherapists and dentists although some funding may be required for some of those private and professional services.
