Living the life at The Red House Care Home in Ashtead

We strongly believe that high level of quality and personalised care is at the heart of our daily endeavours. In this respect we consider that individual stimulation enriched with a full programme of daily activities will encourage our residents to pursue an independent lifestyle.

Szidi Sinka, Activities Coordinator, organises and delivers activities that are based around people’s interests that promote their independence and confidence. Moreover, people are always encouraged to be involved in activities in the local community. Most of the people living at The Red House are from the surrounding area and are supported to attend the yearly Ashtead Village Day which gives them the opportunity to socialise with the other villagers and old friends. To retain our resident’s independence for as long as possible, outings are offered in order to continue pursuing any social activity they may have had. Residents can enjoy spending time going out shopping or just strolling out and about to the local pub for a cappuccino or pond to feed the ducks. These outings make an enormous positive difference to their well-being which is a valuable asset to our home.

The historic home of the More-Molyneux family at Loseley Park, Guilford was a tremendous place to visit by our residents recently. The programme of the trip included a guided visit of the house where we all enjoyed listening to the spectacular description of the history of the house, we saw the remarkable collection of the portraits and paintings and we sat in the drawing-room to delectate our senses in this refined and elegant room. A delicious lunch and tour of the gardens was immensely enjoyed by all just before heading back to our private function to serve our afternoon treats. The day was filled with joy and happiness and we are looking forward to our next outing.

This year The Red House Care Home in Ashtead opened its doors to the local community and celebrated Care Home Open Day in conjunction with The Big Lunch. The theme for this year was ‘Friendship’ therefore families and friends, members of the local community and visiting practitioners were all invited to enjoy a magnificent day alongside our service users and staff in our delightful garden. To mark the special day, a delicious BBQ enriched with a sociable and friendly ambience was enjoyed while listening to live music. Celebrating the friendship that develops between the residents, staff and families is a valuable asset to our home and reinforces our core value of person-centred care.
