Outdoor Activities for Seniors in our Care Homes

As welcoming, homely and attractive as our homes are, a key component of Porthaven’s activities and wellbeing framework is the need for our residents to continue to engage with life outdoors.

Our landscaped and terraced gardens provide the perfect settings for many activities and wellbeing events throughout the year, including sporting moments, musical soirees, concerts, cocktail parties and charity events. Or just sitting or strolling outside and reflecting.

One of our most important highlights every year is the Porthaven Garden Challenge taking place amongst the flower and vegetable beds, which challenges the residents and staff to compete for some amazing prizes. Our gardens turn into a riot of colour and sensory experience with some interesting produce grown, floral creations blooming, and edible treats abounding!

With a fleet of minibuses and professional drivers, our homes also offer trips and outings every week. Our outings programme is extensive, and some of the recent venues chosen by our residents have included The Wallace Collection in London, the Old Trafford Museum in Manchester and the east coast. Many of our trips though are much closer to home with visits to farmers’ markets, shops, breweries, country estates, beauty spots and not surprisingly local pubs being an evergreen and popular choice for many!
