NEW Loving Life – Day Services at Dora Matthews House, Coleford

Dora Matthews House is our Extra Care Living scheme for the over 55’s in the historic town of Coleford.  Manager, Julie Element and her team are launching a new initiative the Loving Life -Day Services from 1st June 2017.  This new service is aimed at pulling in locals from the surrounding area who might not have heard  of Dora  Matthews House and the community hub that exists there.

From 1st June people can come along on a guest day rate package.  Activities on offer  include:

  • Seated exercise classes with qualified Oomph instructor
  • Arts & Crafts sessions
  • Knit & Natter Group
  • Photography Group
  • Cinema & Film showings
  • Reminiscence sessions
  • Quizzes, Games & Sing-alongs
  • Pamper  & Beauty sessions in the treatment rooms
  • Hairdressing & Podiatry

Julie said: “ This is a great chance for people who might be  socially isolated in the community to come in and make new friends, catch up with old ones and build social networks.   We are also able to offer people the chance to take part in some exercise sessions that can really help improve peoples flexibility, mobility and general well-being.  Myself and the team are truly excited to  be able to offer this new service.”

Activity Days will operate Monday-Friday from 1030am-3.30pm and places must be booked in advance.  The full  Activity Day costs just £25 per person.  Some services offered will attract additional fees.
