Being active is essential to staying healthy

Our Activities team organises a wide range of involving activities and social events every week including for example – cheese and wine evenings, card and board games, music afternoons, visiting speakers and outings to local places of interest.

A Holistic Activities Programme is available to all our residents, tailored specifically to the tastes and preferences of those living with us by a NAPA qualified Activities Coordinator. The Hollies has twice been a runner up in the National Care Awards and our outings and entertainment are often cited as being one of the favourite aspects of the time our residents have with us.

A monthly programme is displayed in our reception area and a daily programme is delivered to each resident weekly, allowing all residents to enjoy a busy social calendar, if they so wish.

Our activities include quizzes, creative writing, art therapy, evening singers and entertainers. We also have a minibus for local outings and pub lunches. Outings have included Weston-Super-Mare, Westonbirt Arboretum and Bath plus regular trips to the garden centre and library.

We always welcome the relatives and friends of relatives to join in with our activities.

The Hollies isn’t just about participating in scheduled events; we encourage our residents to build a life here and the vegetable garden, aviary and poultry coop are available for all to enjoy.

“A heartfelt thank you to you all for making Mum so so comfortable in such tranquil surroundings and the immense help and support you gave us all as a family through what has been a truly difficult time..”
