Tea and biscuits are served mid-morning and mid-afternoon as well as when required.
Meals can be provided for visitors if required.

Precious has a large selection of recreational and leisure facilities for our residents to enjoy. We have an Activities Organiser who devises weekly activities with input from our residents. Every resident is given the choice to join in at a level they feel comfortable with.
On admission to the Care Home, we will find out about the new resident’s interests and hobbies. Every effort is made to encourage them to continue with those interests or develop new ones.
Our gardens are accessible and garden furniture is provided for those wishing to sit outside. Our colleagues encourage and can assist residents for short walks on the patio or the garden.
We have a wide variety of activities including bingo, cards, dominoes, puzzles and games for mental and physical stimulation. We have a small library of books, many with large print.
The activities are held throughout the week, with time spent with those residents that are unable to take part in group activities, having one to one sessions with our Activities Organiser.
The Care Home arranges for professional performers to come into the home at regular intervals, these include musicians and local groups. Day trips and excursions outside the home are arranged for our residents during the summer months. We continue to raise funds for our activities by undertaking yearly summer fêtes, open days and raffles.
Residents’ family and friends are encouraged to visit them regularly or maintain contact by digital means, telephone or letter when visiting is not possible. In these cases, our colleagues will offer assistance to reply where help may be needed.
Visitors are welcomed at any time and are asked to let the Person in Charge know of their arrival and departure from the Care Home. For security and fire safety reasons, all visitors must sign the Visitors Book on each occasion.
During the pandemic, contact with others and visiting will be in line with the Guidelines from the Government, Department of Health and Social Care, Local Authorities with full Infection Prevention Control Measures in place.
