Cornelius House has a calendar of daily, weekly and monthly activities. We have a dedicated Activities Coordinator, Linda, her role is to meet the residents needs and programme activities as directed by the residents themselves. Residents can feel free to join in as they like or take advantage of our one to one sessions with Linda or a volunteer to really feel that special attention. We have a weekly program of massage and manicure on Mondays, hairdressing on Tuesdays, exercise class on a Thursday provided by our own personal trainer, Martin. We have reminiscence therapy groups once a week provided by Tracey at Pastimes, which is always well attended. Church services and communion are provided by the local Fishbourne Parish and our residents are invited to attend the Anna Chaplaincy services for Care homes seasonally.

We have regular musicians that visit our home when we can sing and dance! We welcome visiting community groups and at Christmas we have a very full programme of entertainment and indulgence.

Our annual Garden party is a highlight of the year, where all our residents and their friends and family join with our staff and their families to have a party together. We are renowned for our hospitality and these events are always looked forward to with great anticipation.

We have a company car that is used for outings (and hospital  appointments) and for larger groups we hire a minibus to go on out throughout the year. We have been on boat trips, theatre and cinema visits, museums and garden trips always stopping for a packed lunch, ice cream or tea in the cafe.

“I have worked at Cornelius House for several years as a complementary therapist, so I have lots of comments from the residents…..they all agree it’s the best pace to be. They all enjoy the activities, be it an imaginary trip around the country with the super activities lady. The staff never fail to smile and chat with the residents… The Summer Party is great fun, with lots and lots of relatives visiting with grand-children and great grand-children… I would move in when I reach a certain age!”
