Our hairdresser Pat visits weekly and we have regular visits from chiropodists and opticians to make sure our residents always look and feel at their best. Amanda, who enthusiastically leads our weekly exercise class, also offers aromatherapy massages for our residents to enjoy. These massages can be beneficial in so many ways - strengthening limbs which have perhaps been weakened through a stroke, improving mobility and easing pain in stiff joints or just maybe for relaxation and a little bit of feeling pampered!
Mobile shops also visit from time to time to offer a more convenient way of buying clothes, footwear and even sweets!
We regularly invite local entertainers to come to The Hollies as well as having a full schedule of activities. However, if you prefer to take things a little easier we have numerous lounges - some with large screen TVs, a sunlounge, garden and a quiet sitting out area for those lovely sunny British Summers!
We have a minibus which enables residents to have trips to numerous places including shops, garden centres, and pantomimes, to name but a few.
We can arrange to have your favourite newspaper or magazine delivered to you and can have a telephone installed in your own room to keep in contact with family and friends.
If you have to attend an appointment, eg. at a hospital, and your family cannot take you, we can arrange for a member of our staff to escort you, as detailed in our contract.
A passenger lift and a stairlift ensure that the residents have full access to all parts of their lovely home and we have a locking safe to keep their valuables in.
