The purpose of providing meaningful social and recreational activities for our Residents is to provide stimulation, involvement, participation and fun.
It is very important here at Haven Bay that we meet the individual needs of each of our residents as this allows us to strive towards a more person centered approach in all aspects of care.
We start by asking each resident and their family to complete a ‘Life story’ allowing us to learn more about the person’s life and interests before they came to Haven Bay.
This allows us better plan for the activities they may enjoy. There are a number of activities on offer each day, residents as always have a choice in whether they wish to attend any or some of these recreational pursuits.
Mass is celebrated in Haven Bay twice weekly with Fr Kelly and a Eucharistic service is celebrated on Sundays.
Our resident Pet Therapist is Sophie. A Japanese Spitz, Sophie was born the same year Haven Bay opened its doors, in 2007.
This bundle of fluff and affection is a valued member of staff and is welcomed wherever she visits.
