New Ideas at Abbeyfield Maidenhead
Social Interaction of Residents
Volunteering: We are considering asking our residents if they want to volunteer for an hour or so a week at a charity shop or in any other way. This provides motivation to go out and maintain their interaction with the local community.
Visiting Schools: At Nicholas House, a nursery school visits our residents and this has proved very successful, so we are talking to schools local to Winton House.
Day Services: We are also looking at the possibility of providing more day services at Winton House to bring in local older people who feel isolated, need a little extra support and social interaction where they could take part in some of the activities and have lunch.
