People usually come to live at Bare Hall because they can no longer manage to cope with the day-to-day activities in their own home. There are many reasons for this; physical ill-health, emotional problems, loneliness, lack of companionship, confusion simply because someone is finding it increasingly difficult to cope with cooking, cleaning and looking after the house. Whilst in our care every effort is made to maintain social contacts of residents by the continuous arrangement of social activities.

The Home plans and provides a programme of social activities to reflect the diverse needs of the residents, and it is the home policy to respect the right of each resident to lead as independent and fulfilling a life as possible.

Residents have the opportunity to have their say in how their home is run through regular monthly residents meetings. Ideas discussed at these meetings influence the way things are done within the home, from menu planning to ideas for outings. Through this process, residents have a say in the decision making which affects their everyday lives.

External activities are organised according to individual or group wishes.

From time to time, residents may need to leave the home for shopping trips, doctors and hospital appointments, etc. and on these occasions appropriate transportation for the resident is arranged by using the company cars. Whenever it is needed, members of staff are more than happy to accompany residents on such appointments.

Internal activities include bingo, dominoes, scrabble, whist, sing-a-longs etc.

Opportunity for residents to continue practising their faith is important to staff at Bare Hall. Residents can attend religious services either within or outside the home if they so desire and can meet clergy of their chosen denomination at any time, and private rooms will be made available within the Home for such meetings. Communion of a nondenominational type is available once a month for residents unable to pursue their own following within the community.

Visiting is encouraged and totally unrestricted and residents can entertain visitors in the lounges, and dining rooms or in their own bedrooms.
