Activities & things to do

At Bethsaida our Activities Co-ordinator and Diversional Therapist organise and run a monthly calendar programme of activities, outings and events to meet a huge variety of interests and abilities. We believe in providing inclusive, stimulating opportunities to socialise and keep active.

As a resident you can enjoy the visiting music and dance productions, participate in excursions to local art galleries, mystery bus trips, along with reciprocal social visits to other rest homes in the area.

Our many in-house activities include exercise programmes to keep you moving, housie, games and church services for all dominations.
You can make friends and have the flexibility to choose to participate as much or as little as you like.
