A DAY IN THE LIFE
Relationships of every kind are at the heart of all that we do and we work hard to nurture and develop them...
... with family, friends, fellow residents, and of course staff and other valued members of our exceptionally strong community.
Recognising that care is needed on both a practical and emotional level, our staff are genuine carers who willingly take the time to ensure that you benefit from being part of our happy family.
We believe that the support given at Mavern House can make a very positive difference to the lives’ of individuals and families. You will likely be surprised at just how good life in a nursing home can be. Below we outline some of the key differences you will notice:
Art and enrichment
A unique part of living at Mavern House is our arts and health enrichment programme designed to stimulate, provoke and add spontaneity in line with our Eden Alternative principles.
We work hard to bring the 'outside world in', and have developed a team of local, highly talented and experienced creative people who work with us on a regular basis and have become a vital part of our community.
In the company of our artists you have a unique opportunity to rediscover what being creative means. People are free to join in with whatever inspires them and the emphasis is always on having fun, relaxing, engaging with others in the group.
Of course we also offer a healthy mix of mind-stretching activities that are familiar and fun including: board games, crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, discussion groups, film club and reading group - our staff are always on the lookout for opportunities to enrich daily life.
Our community choir, made up of elders, staff, family and external friends practices regularly and gives several performances each year.
Yoga, wellbeing and beauty
Each week we have a yoga group and you can have the opportunity to enjoy gentle movement and deep relaxation, all from your chair - unless you are feeling particularly energetic!
We also have caring local practitioner offers reflexology and reiki sessions each week to all who live and work at Mavern House to support their health and well-being.
We have a dedicated hair salon in which you can enjoy having your hair styled each week and we also have regular pamper sessions when you can enjoy having your nails or make-up done for you.
