Put Lilliput House at the heart of a great family day out

Life’s too short to waste a moment

There’s something to do at Lilliput House every day. We laugh, sing and dance together, use our hands, cook, play instruments, learn new things, discuss favourite books, exercise and get creative. No one has a chance to get bored at our care home in Dorset!

Tell us what you like to do

Before you join us we would like to hear more about your current interests and hobbies. As well anything you have always wanted to try.  And once you’re part of our community we always appreciate suggestions from you or your family.  Our activities coordinator will make sure your suggestions are added to the weekly schedule or will work with you on a one-to-one basis.

Here’s what we’re doing already

We’re constantly developing our recreation programme, and the following list highlights just some of wide-ranging activities we have on offer:

  • Arts and crafts: drawing, painting, card-making, felting, knitting, collage, etc. – plenty of opportunities to get creative and messy!
  • Exercise: chair exercises, different styles of dancing or walks around the garden
  • Games: carpet bowls, dominoes, card games, quizzes and board games
  • Trips / recreational outings: adventures from trips down memory lane to entirely new experiences
  • Cooking: everyone loves baking – it’s a special treat in which we all get to share the finished biscuits and cakes
  • Guest speakers / talks: there are plenty of people who come in to talk about their lives or to teach us new skills
  • Pet therapy: nothing beats some quiet time with animals
  • General household skills: this focuses on retaining independence so that our residents feel in control of their lives
  • Live entertainers: everyone from bell-ringers to singers and keyboard players
  • Local schools visits: pupils come along to sing or perform short plays for us
  • Personal care: hairdressing, makeup, manicures, pedicures etc.
  • Gardening: the garden is a wonderful resource with raised beds for the green-fingered amongst us
