    Activities

    Here at the Airedale, we believe activities are a crucial part of the day for our service users and as part of our ongoing commitment, we strive to ensure that their time with us is as enjoyable as possible.
    We offer a comprehensive daily programme of activities, which are carried out throughout the home and all service users get a choice of the full range of activities on offer. We employ a full-time
    activities officer
    Diana Gardner
    Activities Officer
    .
    Both group and individual participation is available.
    We are always looking to introduce and incorporate new activities into our existing programme.
    Activities are five days a week, Monday - Friday, and we find the majority of residents and families agree that weekends should be a family time when they can have quality time together and rest after a busy week of activities.
    Below are just a few of the activities available to our service users:
