Life in Thorney Croft

Life in Thorney Croft

Our home has some wonderful spaces to relax and enjoy company of friends and family, including an activities room, TV lounges and small kitchenettes.

All bedrooms are comfortable and spacious with en-suite facilities. We encourage people to personalise their rooms with small items that remind them of home. We have beautiful sensory gardens, so people we support can enjoy relaxation and activity outdoors.

We run an extensive activity programme including one-to-one and group activities, such as arts and crafts, reminiscence sessions, pamper days, gardening and cinema nights. We also support people to enjoy days out in the community too. By getting to know the people we support well, we are able to offer activities that meet their different passions and interests.



Food and Nutrition

Food and Nutrition

Mealtimes represent an important social occasion for our residents and we work to ensure they are as enjoyable as possible, unhurried and relaxed with residents being given plenty of time to eat and enjoy their meal.

We make a point of celebrating birthdays and special occasions, as well as celebrating and dressing up for national festivities such as St Andrew’s Day, Mother’s Day and Burns Night.

Our chefs prepare nutritious and delicious meals, which are freshly made. We also support people who have specialist diets.
