Our team takes a considered approach to dementia-friendly activities and meaningful engagement – supporting our residents who live with dementia to still experience happiness, comfort and contentment.

Activities & events
Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Brentwood Care Centre is a key focus for our dedicated team.
By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes and dislikes as well as activities they may like to try.
No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.
In addition to art therapy, keeping fit with our chair-based exercises, baking, and quizzes. We also take great pleasure in welcoming visiting entertainers, schools and groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents.
Our team and residents also love pottering around the local garden centre, taking in a movie at the cinema and getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year – complete with themed menus and decorations!

Nutrition & Dining
Great food speaks volumes about how we care and, in our homes, food is at the heart of the home.
To create the RCH Dining Experience, the Catering Team consists of a Chef and Kitchen Team. The Catering Team are committed to promoting each resident’s health and wellbeing with wholesome and nutritional seasonal menus which are freshly prepared in our homes every day.
The Chef works alongside the whole care team to understand each individual resident’s preferences and special dietary needs.
Our dining rooms are informal, relaxed, welcoming spaces, but just as in your own home, any space may lend itself to eating and drinking.
We support residents to enjoy meals wherever they feel most comfortable, breakfast in bed is a favourite with afternoon tea in the garden a close second.
