St. Attractas Residence employs an activities team who coordinate and run a weekly program of activities to provide stimulation, entertainment, physical activity and fun for our residents.

Our program is wide and varied and we are always open to considering new options; some of the activities we currently run are listed below.

There are four members in our activities team two of whom are rostered on duty each day Monday-Friday.

Our activities staff are all formally trained in activities programs. An activities plan is created each week which is posted around the nursing home.
