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.

Our Activity Coordinators have an absolute blast planning a variety of fun 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. 

Our residents’ freedom is incredibly important to us at Penrose Court, and respecting their independence is a key part of what makes our teams so much more than just that. With that in mind, we want our residents and their loved ones to know that not all of our activities are conducted by a supervisor. Having a member of our team on hand for events such as day trips and special excursions is, of course, always encouraged.

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 Facilities at Penrose Court

At Penrose Court, we go above and beyond to make sure that all of our facilities and activity programmes are as varied and inclusive as possible, regardless of whether residents are new to the activities or have been doing them for quite some time. Residents are encouraged to participate and benefit from all of our facilities’ social, emotional, and physical features. We guarantee they will not be disappointed by our wide selection of things to do and places to see.

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 are entirely optional, so if our residents would prefer not to participate for a day or two, that is quite fine with us. Our activities and programmes are supposed to be enjoyed, and there are no consequences if a resident decides to try something that turns out to be just not their cup of tea.

Varied Activities Programme FAQ’s

If you have any queries about our activity programmes or how we operate at Penrose Court, you’ve come to the right place. We understand that while looking for a place to live, whether for yourself or a loved one, you want to know everything there is to know before taking that important decision. We’d be pleased to answer any questions you might have about our services, facilities, or anything else you can think of if you feel like you want or need more information.

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 will look forward to something new and exciting every day.

Prepare to be wowed by our diverse range of activities and possibilities. From planned day trips that include plenty of retail therapy and wonderful dinners out, to activities that don’t even require you to leave the house, 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 tantalising wine and cheese evenings, as well as fantastic coffee mornings and afternoon teas.

Every week, our schedule is changed and updated with new activities planned for each day. However, we like to make sure that each week is jam-packed with a variety of different activities for our residents to try their hand at. So, on one day, we might have three activities going on: one social activity, one cognitive activity, and one activity that’s more creatively based. Again, no two days are ever the same at Penrose Court, and our residents benefit from participating in a variety of activities on a daily basis.

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 our residents may have already experienced an incredibly difficult period by the time they officially move into our house, 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 our lovely residents to feel left out or unnoticed.
