Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Ashley Court. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.
We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.
Some of our regular activities include:
- Regular trips to the park
- Boating trips
- Garden teas
- Movie club
- Breakfast club
Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.
Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.
Our seasonal menus are set for 28 days and residents and families can create menus at regular meetings held with the chefs. There’s always two meals to choose from and we provide a variety of traditional and specialist foods as well as themed nights.
Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Centrally located in the beautiful town of Poole in Dorset, there are plenty of seaside resorts on the doorstep to Ashley Court. Visitors and residents can enjoy restaurants, the park, any of the nearby beaches and lots of historic attractions. The home is easily accessible by road, bus and rail.
The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.
Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.
Arranged over three floors, our 60 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
Our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.
Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.
