Varied Activities Programme

One of our many passions at Penrose Court is ensuring that our residents get the most out of each and every day. We encourage our residents to do what brings them joy, whether it’s exploring the gardens and grounds at Penrose Court, socialising with friends and family, or stretching their legs and venturing into Biggleswade’s vibrant market town centre.

We believe it is important to offer residents a varied activities programme and our Activity Coordinators take great consideration in planning a variety of new, fun, and inclusive activities for our residents to participate in. Although we have our own transport to take residents from one excursion to the next, Penrose Court is in such a terrific position that if family members wanted to join in the fun, there are plenty of great transport options nearby, so nobody is ever left behind. 

Encouraging Excitement and Enthusiasm

There’s never a dull moment when staying with us at Penrose Court, whether you want to focus on staying active or you want to spend your days truly channelling your creativity. We think that no two days should be the same, and we want nothing more than to make that a reality for our residents and their loved ones who spend their days with us also. 

At Penrose Court, we really want all of our residents to take ownership of their lives and do what makes them happy. As a result, many of the events on our programme are led by our residents, and they are frequently co-organised by both our residents and our activity coordinators.

Our Home is Your Home

Simply because our residents have decided to move and join us at Penrose Court, doesn’t mean they should undergo a significant shift in the way in which they live their life. We want our residents to be able to continue to live their lives their way, and all of our activities have been structured in a way so as to not get in the way of that.

Our activities and programmes are entirely option and supposed to be enjoyed, and whilst residents are encouraged to get involved, they are more than welcome to sit out and spend their time doing what it is that makes them happy instead.

Varied Activities Programme FAQs

With a varied activities and entertainment programme, in addition to regular outings and events, every day can be enjoyed to the full. All of our activities are scheduled on a daily basis, ensuring that our residents and their loved ones never have the same day twice. We adjust our schedule as often as possible so that everyone in our community can look forward to something new and exciting every day.

We are delighted to offer a diverse range of activities and opportunities. From planned day trips that include shopping and dining, to activities that don’t even require you to leave the comfort of your own home, there’s something for everyone.

Residents and visiting family and friends can find plenty to do in and around Biggleswade; whether it is out shopping at big outlet shops and farmers markets or visiting the multitude of beautiful gardens and parks, you’ll certainly always have an exciting day ahead.

We also have a plethora of books, magazines, and craft supplies on hand just for when inspiration strikes. Quizzes and jigsaw puzzles are often also available if you’re looking for a mentally engaging afternoon. If you’re looking for something more sociable however, we’ve hosted wine and cheese evenings, as well as fantastic coffee mornings and afternoon teas.

We organise so many events and activities for our residents because we don’t believe that a change of place equates to a change of heart. We understand that it isn’t easy for residents to make the move into a care home and we want to alleviate as much stress from our residents as we can.

If we can provide at least a minute of stability in the midst of our residents’ busy lives, we will have made a significant step forward. We organise so many events and activities because we don’t want any of residents to feel as though they can’t continue doing the things they love.
