Sensory Trolley

Every day - Two-hour sessions

We have recently begun building a sensory trolley, meaning that we can bring a sensory environment, accessible to everyone, to anywhere in the home. The trolley contains items projecting sound, light and smell in a resident’s room or in the lounge.

Painting on the Balcony

Thursday 9th May 2019 - 1:30pm

Thanks to the arrival of warmer weather, residents have recently started painting on the balcony, making use of our new easels. Residents and staff are looking forward to more painting with tea and music on the balcony through the summer months.

Visiting Church Service & Streamed Services

Sunday 12th May 2019 - 11:00am

In May, Savernake View has the pleasure of welcoming a local minister along with his volunteers for one Sunday each month, offering a more traditional service than our residents are used to. We have started to stream church services from around the world to our cinema, offering residents the chance to attend a religious service at least once a week.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01672 555200 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
