Activities

Marmora offers a large variety of activities for service users. Activities are used to help stimulate the mind and give each individual a sense of enjoyment. We offer activities such as; puzzles, painting (aqua paints), old games (such as shove halfpenny), indoor skittles, and various group activities such as bingo, chair exercise class, and balloon tennis. Our activities support worker is always coming up with new ideas for activities, and delivers them expertly, taking into account each person’s preference and likes.

Our residents enjoy cosy film afternoons with popcorn and old fashioned sweets on a quieter day. Marmora is a very sociable home and our residents often appear comforted by having the company of other residents and familiar staff around them. This has proved to be such a comfort to many new residents that have moved into the home that previously have had to spend a lot of time on their own when living in their own homes. Residents show kindness and compassion towards each other in which there is a real community feel to the home.
