The Willows Nursing & Residential Home offers a wide and varied activity programme to its residents, who are encouraged to continue to develop and pursue any individual interests and hobbies. These activities are co-ordinated by our Activities Organiser on a weekly basis.  Our Activities Organiser is experienced and has been with us over nine years. 

Our residents enjoy a range of activities from cards and dominoes, to arts and crafts, to armchair aerobics.  We also hold regular parties for special occasions and birthdays, as well as a variety of visiting entertainers, including the local primary school choir and the Gretton Brass Band.

Reminiscence is a very beneficial and enjoyable activity for residents living with dementia by recalling their past, and providing an opportunity to recount their memories. This process is aided by visual reminders of past significant and interesting events, which are encapsulated in the home's own daily newspaper " The Willows Daily Sparkle".

The home has two dedicated state of the art computers specifically for our residents use. Residents are encouraged to use these internet facilities, including skype, particularly for contact with family overseas.  Whether the residents would like to join in a game or quiz, spend time reading or entertaining friends and family, the choice is theirs. 

The Willows is an integral part of the Market Harborough community who are encouraged to contribute and participate in the activities of the home.  These also include monthly religious services provided by the various churches in the area.
