Activities Programme

At Bothwell Castle Care Home, we believe that playing games, taking part in gentle sports and participating in recreational activities are incredibly important when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Our team understands the value of spending time with our residents and learning all about their interests, and are passionate about creating new and exciting activities for all of our residents to take part in, offering plenty of variety and choice for both 1:1 and group activities.

Live Life to the Full

Whether we play games or plan tournaments in the garden during the Spring and Summer months, or take our residents into the community, friends and family can be confident that our residents wellbeing is our number one priority. 

Our Activity Coordinators are fantastic when it comes to encouraging our residents to try new things and they’re also great at making sure that those residents who still want to carry on with what they’ve been doing for years, still get the opportunity to do the things they love.
