Things to do in Kent
There is plenty of things for our residents to discover in the local areas around our home. Nestled in the north Kent countryside, there are many tranquil places that offer perfect opportunities for getting some fresh air in the great outdoors, such as Trosley Country Park and Camer Park. Both offer great days out, where you can admire nature and wildlife, enjoy a picnic, or take the grandchildren for a play.
Located just a few minutes drive from Longfield train station and village, residents have a plethora of amenities such as a supermarket, bank, and multiple eateries. They can also benefit from these and much more in popular cities Chatham and Maidstone, which are less than half an hour from Hazelwood Care Home. In the wider area of Kent, there are many local attractions that make for perfect family days out or group excursions for our residents. Whitstable is less than an hours drive from Hazelwood and provides a variety of things to see and do for all ages and interests. Residents can spend an afternoon on the beach, enjoy ice creams at the harbour, or have a look around the independent shops and grab lunch in the town. However they wish to spend their days, they won’t be short of things to do in Kent.
Facilities at our Care Home in Kent
At Hazelwood Care Home, we place great emphasis on making sure residents can continue to live their lives in whichever way they want. Part of that is to encourage independence, but also offer opportunities to pursue interests, continue hobbies and meet new people. Our Activities Team works hard to build relationships with the residents and learn what they like to do so that this can be incorporated into our weekly programme, which relatives are often invited to get involved with too.
When residents are not out on a day trip in the local community, or participating in an activity at the home, there is plenty of other things on offer to keep them entertained and stimulated. Residents who like to discover new films or read a good book can do both in the comfort of their own home, with our Cinema Room and Library offering comfortable seating and a variety of titles to get stuck into. Our Garden and Sensory Room also offer great benefits for both mental and physical wellbeing, which we encourage our residents to use.
