Life at Gainsborough Court

The extra care facility is the link between home and residential care, and helps residents to retain their independence and stay active. Activities such as coffee mornings, arts and gardening clubs, and festive celebrations are arranged through a committee of residents.

There is also a Zumba teacher who visits weekly and runs a wheelchair Zumba class.

Louise Young, Registered Manager for Gainsborough Court added that:

Residents do a lot of activities. They do a play every year which is great fun. In 2020 we had to adapt and do it on Zoom, but everyone was so enthusiastic. We all really look forward to it.

If residents don’t see themselves as an actor or actress, the communal lounge is also a perfect place for relaxing. Watching TV and films, playing games, or enjoying takeaways, are all popular activities shared by residents.
