An Active Life
At Thorney Croft, we run an extensive activity programme and support people to enjoy days out in the community too. By getting to know the people we support well, we are able to offer activities that meet their different passions and interests.
Residents enjoy fun one-to-one and group activities, such as arts and crafts, reminiscence sessions, pamper days, gardening and cinema nights. They recently took part in an arts project producing a monopoly style board with landmarks from Stranraer
We hold regular social events for people we support and their families, including performances from local entertainers.
We welcome the contribution of family members. We have a Family Forum, who provide us with feedback and ideas. We work together to plan special days out and celebrations.
Mealtimes represent an important social occasion for our residents and we work to ensure they are as enjoyable as possible, unhurried and relaxed with residents being given plenty of time to eat and enjoy their meal.
Our chefs prepare nutritious and delicious meals, which are freshly made. We also support people who have specialist diets.
Person Centred Care
We are committed to providing personalised support that ensures our residents lead active, happy and fulfilled lives:
All staff receive specialist training and mentoring. We really get to know our residents and spend time understanding their life story and the things that are important to them, so we focus on the things that really matter to them.
Every resident has a named key worker who helps develop their own personalised care.
We hold a regular forum with residents, enabling them to voice their views on the day-to-day running of our home.
