At Dorset House our residents are encouraged to pursue their existing hobbies and actively try new social activities, with the assistance of the friendly staff and activities department.

Our philosophy is simple, we will do everything we can to ensure the well being of the residents and through providing the choice of a healthy active lifestyle this ethos is maintained. Creating a sense of community through enjoyable activities is key, not only will this physically and psychologically promote well being it creates friendships and stimulates residents sensory, emotional and cognitive senses. Family and friends are welcome to join our residents at anytime, the activities board in the main reception details the plan for the month ahead so get involved! A regular week at Dorset House will see us doing armchair exercises, art classes, gardening clubs, themed suppers, quizzes, movies in the cinema room and movement to music!
