Activities and Wellbeing

We want our residents to really flourish in their later years. Donate to enhance our activities programme.

When residents arrive at Bridgemead, however much nursing they require, they retain the potential to enjoy a range of physical and mental activities that stimulate all the senses.

Our programme helps to build friendship and community. It promotes our vision of a home-from-home.
