At Northfield Manor we recognise the importance of individuals maintaining social and emotional contacts and spending time doing things they enjoy. Visitors are welcome at Northfield Manor at any time in accordance with resident’s wishes and refreshments are available upon request. Visits can take place in communal areas or in the residents own room, whichever the resident prefers.
Every individual’s religious beliefs are respected and individuals are supported to continue practicing their religion in accordance with their wishes. A Holy Communion Service is held at the home on a monthly basis. It is equally important that individuals spiritual needs are met either in relation to a particular faith or in other ways such as being able to sit in the garden, feed the birds or listen to music.
We have our own dedicated Activities Co-ordinator, Jean, who has worked at Northfield Manor since 1994 and she arranges a wide range of activities, entertainment and outings.
We have regular social events including a fortnightly pub afternoon, Christmas and Summer Fairs, knitting & nattering group, coffee mornings and cream teas. Our fundraising events enable us to provide additional activities, entertainment and outings.
We have regular entertainment within the home including singers such as Nigel Heap, Steve Martin, Adam Stark, Carrian and Chrissy Clifford. We have music therapy sessions where you can join in as much or as little as you wish and visits from other companies such as Zoolab. Additionally a visiting theatre group perform twice a year.
We have outings to various places chosen by residents. Recent outings have included The Deep, Eden Camp, The Railway Museum, The Street Life Museum, Hornsea Freeport, Beverley Garden Centre and Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
Additionally we have regular trips into Driffield town centre for pub lunches, shopping trips, visits to cafes and to look round the market on a Thursday, plus regular trips to our sister home in Cottingham.
