Activities at Benjamin LodgeThe Proudfoot Care Group is aware that lifestyle can potentially maximise your health as you age and we therefore promote physical health and exercise, diet and nutrition, cognitive activity and social engagement.
Research suggests that this approach can keep the body and brain healthy and potentially reduce the risk of cognitive decline. We see social stimulation as important as the other types of care provided. We feel the key to delivering high quality social stimulation is knowing the person well and what their previous interests included and understanding how dementia or other mental health problem impacts upon their ability to engage in activities.
Remaining cognitively and socially active can improve overall health and we acknowledge the significance of this within the Proudfoot Care Group. Meaningful, enjoyable activities are available to everyone within our homes as a group or individually. We arrange ongoing projects within the home, trips outside of the home and aim to organise whatever the residents indicate that they would like to try.
