Leisure activities

Leisure activities

At Pembroke House we want our residents to enjoy the comfort and security of being in their own home, enhanced by our care. At the same time we offer them a wide programme of activities, outings and social events with something for all tastes.

Home from home

All our residents have their own room where they can relax, read, watch television and entertain visitors. In the many day rooms they can enjoy the company of other residents and join in various activities and social events if they wish.

In-house activities for everyone

We have our own Activities Coordinator who arranges a comprehensive programme of in-house activities, including handicrafts, music and movement, bingo and a very popular weekly quiz. Concerts, parties and visits from ex-service organisations are some of the other features of the social calendar in the home.

Gardens for gardeners, spectators and snoozers

The gardens are very accessible and provide plenty of opportunities for keen gardeners as well as for those who simply want to relax in a peaceful, outdoor environment. The landscaped walled garden provides a tranquil haven as well as an ideal location for summer BBQs.

Hospitality from shipmates of the Royal Naval Association

For events away from the home we have our own 14-seater minibus with a wheelchair hoist. The minibus was very kindly donated to us by the Royal Naval Association and other organisations whose branches often invite our residents to their social events, for example Trafalgar Night dinners and even weekends away.

Annual highlights

We receive tremendous support from other sources; some of the annual highlights provided by the Not Forgotten Association are a garden party at Buckingham Palace, a Christmas Party at St James's Palace, Centre Court seats at Wimbledon, a cruise on the Solent, the Second Sea Lord's garden party, and the RNBT Annual Presentation and luncheon. Also we have frequent outings from the home to visit places of interest and local events.
