Entertainment & Activities

At The Porterbrook Care Home, our staff is devoted to providing exceptional services in a safe environment that allow residents to make the most of every day. We want our residents to be able to keep doing what makes them happy, whether that’s watching a classic film on our cinema screen, socialising with friends and family in our private dining area, or learning about the heritage of Sheffield.

The most interesting activities are planned by our trained Activity Coordinators for our residents. In addition, we have a chauffeur-driven car available to take our residents from one trip to the next; our home’s location is ideal for residents and their loved ones to explore Sheffield and the neighbouring areas.

A Variety of Activities

We think that no two days should be the same, and we strive to make every day interesting and exciting for all of our residents, whether they choose to focus on being active or channelling their inner creativity. Our professional Activity Coordinators work hard to ensure that an active and social lifestyle is promised, taking the time to get to know everyone of our residents to incorporate activities to suit everyone’s interests. The Porterbrook Care Home is the ideal setting for bringing everyone together and making the most of each day.
