Mental health problems such as dementia can be cruel and inhibit peoples’ abilities. At Hay House, we believe it is important to offer and to encourage new ventures, interests and activities so that life can remain as full and varied as possible.

Accordingly, Hay House features a busy activities programme. Our resident activities coordinator arranges activities for both groups as well as for individual participation. Benefitting from having our own minibus, there are trips into town, to the seaside and other places of interest and where possible and for those that feel up to it, shopping expeditions are also organised. There is regular access to visiting services such as the mobile library and mobile clothes shops. Crafts, music and drama sessions are presented including regular visits from an accredited drama therapist. We also organise a range of professional musical entertainments. As always, it is down to personal choice - each person is invited to join in whatever interests or pleases them most.
