Activities for Older People: Planned Activity Groups
Planned Activity groups are particularly suited to people who may live at home alone or those who may not have tne opportunity to get out and about as much as they would like. Activities are varied and include movie days, gentle exercise and games, cards, bingo, quiz days, discussions, sing-a-longs, barbeques, picnics, bus trips to areas of interest e.g. historic sites, concerts,community and cultural events. We actively seek input from group members regarding ideas for activities and outings. Bus transport is provided from home to the venue or members can choose their own arrangements.
