Meaningful Activities

Specialist staff are employed to undertake the home’s activity programs here at Safe Harbor.

Our policy on 'Meaningful Activities' takes into account our resident's life history, interests and personality.

We always try to encourage and help residents to pursue their hobbies and interests whatever their physical capabilities.

We offer a wide range of activities designed to encourage residents to keep mobile, stay active, and most
importantly take an interest in life. Promoting exercise and activities provides many benefits for resident's health and wellbeing.
