Life at Craigbank Care Home

We encourage all of our residents to carry on with their own interests at the home and to also try something new if they wish. By having regular and varied activities every day, there's always something fun to try.

Our Activities

Taking part in stimulating activities is known to help improve appetites and sleep patterns, so that's why our activity co-ordinator does their very best to make sure that there's something interesting happening at the home every day of the week.

Some examples of the activities residents can take part in include quizzes and Bingo, arts and crafts, religious services and visits from local entertainers. We also hold a special themed event each month. So, for example, it could be a Harvest Festival meal, a Christmas party or fireworks on Bonfire Night. Other activities enjoyed by our residents include: Local community and charity events, the home is a 'Big Sing' winner plus regular trips out, to which friends and family are also welcome.
