Daily Life at Vida
Wellbeing and Lifestyle
At Vida, residents are encouraged and supported to choose how they would like to spend their time, to pursue their interests and hobbies and most of all, to treat the home as their own.
Our Wellbeing Team organise therapeutic and enjoyable activities, such as exercise classes, musical entertainment, singing groups, gardening and arts and crafts. Activities are organised on a daily basis however there is always a quiet place for people who would prefer to relax.
We have a range of communal areas which offer residents the opportunity to be as private or sociable as they wish to be. Our gardens, patios and terraced areas provide a safe environment for people who enjoy spending time outdoors.
Friends and family are a big part of life at Vida - there are no strict visiting times. We run regular family meetings and we also offer group support sessions, giving families advice or the opportunity to share their experience of dementia in a supportive setting.
Dining & Nutrition
We offer a choice of delicious, healthy meals every day, taking into account dietary requirements and preferences. Friends and family are welcome to join us at mealtimes or for afternoon tea. All meals and snacks are prepared by our in-house catering team, who have achieved the highest rating with the Food Standards Agency.
We have an in-house salon for hair, beauty and chiropody appointments and a coffee shop, 'B'S TEAS' to allow you to pop for a coffee with your loved one. We also offer a full laundry service which uses ‘Ozone’ technology for added peace of mind, helping to keep clothes hygienically clean without the use of harmful chemicals. We can label clothes for residents – more information is available in our frequently asked questions below.
