Social Activities

Maria our activities Co-ordinator organises a programme of social activities such as games, musical evenings, parties and coffee mornings.

Great Food

Great homely, local food, prepared on the premises in our own kitchen everyday. Meal times are often a hub of activity and a chance for residents to get together.


Our residents' bedrooms are their own private place and we encourage residents and families to make this their own space. Many residents bring in pictures and ornaments  to make their room truly homely.   Residents' own rooms have  ensuite facilities, many with walk-in showers. Our rooms are equipped with emergency call facilities and personal television and telephone points if required. All  are easily accessible with easy wheelchair access throughout the building and with lift access for those on the first floor. 

Myers Lounge - This is the largest of our lounges, where many of our activities, including visiting musicians and our popular morning exercise classes, take place. The room is comfortably furnished  and has an open gas fire, wide-screen television and piano where residents can relax over a movie or enjoy the view of the gardens. There is a library in the Myers Lounge and we supply magazines and papers in the Lounge area.

Sun Lounge - A cosy open space where residents meet for a variety of activities including the ever popular knitting club. This space is also used by friends and families when visiting residents.

Garden Room - No surprises here but a great place to sit and take in the garden all year round even on those cold and dreary days. The room is also home to a partnership project that we are very proud of from The Wallace Collection, a National Museum in London. We have been working with on a new innovative project called The Out of the Frame loan boxes. It is aimed at giving older people in care home settings outside of London access to the collection. We are given a different loan box every month of different themes. They are full of reproduction images of portraits.

Leisure Room - A fantastic space for all our residents who like to get crafty or arty under the guidance of our activities team, led by our own Activities Co-ordinator. When the leisure room is not the focus of arts and crafts it becomes the central point for our worship services on a Wednesday and every other Sunday. All  our activities are optional. 

Dining Room - Central to everything and truly the hub of the home, the beautifully decorated dining room is the perfect place to make meal times a real social activity, but for those who prefer to eat in peace we can serve meals in residents' own rooms.

Hairdressing Salon - Residents can be pampered in our salon offering a range of hair styling from 3 visiting hairdressers.

On site Laundry -  Staff ensure that laundry never becomes a chore for our residents providing a personal laundry service for them.

Beautiful Gardens -There is an outdoor patio with benches, tables and umbrellas  where residents can sit. For others the summerhouse is the perfect place for a cup of tea or a nap in the sunshine.

WiFi - We know how important it is to stay in touch with loved ones. A communal I-pad is available for carers to take into rooms for residents to connect with family and friends.

Medical - Corton House team can ensure that GP arrangements are the same as for anyone living at home.We have visiting chiropodists and physiotherapists and can arrange hospital visits, appointments as required.

Good sized bedrooms – All bedrooms are decorated and furnished to a very high standard, offing privacy and comfort.  Residents are given support and encouragement to personalise their living space.
