Healthy and active lifestyles

All activities and programmes are customer-led, putting them at the very heart of what we do every single day.

Each day we offer a physical activity session to maintain muscle tone and aid movement. We also use arts & crafts to maintain coordination and dexterity.

We encourage our customers to be involved in everyday activities such as setting the dining table at mealtimes, hanging out the washing and enjoying our indoor and outdoor gardens.

We agree a range of activities with our customers, both at our Day Service and outside in the wider community, so that they can remain involved in their neighbourhood as much as possible.

We understand the importance of maintaining nutrition for your loved ones, and each day we offer a freshly cooked meal, which our customers can choose to help prepare.

Our teams ensure that everyone remains hydrated, and drinks are also readily available for our customers to help themselves to throughout the day.

Maintaining religious and cultural beliefs

We understand how important it is for some to keep in touch with cultural and religious aspects of their life and recognise that older people can be faced with many barriers that can prevent this.

When joining ECL, we will discuss how your loved one wishes to continue practicing their faith, and we will support them with attending places of worship if they wish.
