Activities at Pax Hill

Life at Pax Hill is centred very much around the people who live here, and we encourage family and friendsn to be a part of our community. There is always plenty going on, which we encourage residents to participate in, although of course, they are free to do so as much as they wish.

Each area at Pax Hill has a dedicated activity therapist who ensures our residents can, if they wish, participate in daily social activities and entertainment, and that they’re occupied with interests that they like, which are easily available to them.

Our activity therapists are qualified professionals who understand how to help our residents get the best from daily life. They provide a very wide range of activities and events – designed around residents’ needs and personal preferences. These include:

Trips and outings to:

  • Garden centres
  • Pubs
  • Seaside resorts
  • Music festivals

An important part of our activity programme is fundraising. We organise regular events for Macmillan, Dementia UK and Age UK in addition our residents make items for a stall that are sold and three times a year the proceeds are given to charities. These photographs show some of our ladies putting their considerable skills to good use.

This quilt was recently handmade by one of our 97 year old residents on her aged sewing machine that has travelled with her across 3 continents. It will be raffled at Easter.

Students from Lord Wandsworth College in Long Sutton are visiting Pax Hill Care Home each week and providing a wonderful community support programme for residents.

The students have been playing games, reading with and talking to residents for an hour in the afternoons. This is great for the residents, who are really pleased to have young company and are very impressed with those who have visited so far.

Pax Hill resident Pat said: “It was a pleasure to be visited by these young girls, they are interesting, polite and pretty good at Scrabble, which I was very happy about. It is a good idea for the school to facilitate this programme and I hope it continues.”
