Our activity schedules aim to both mentally and physically stimulate participants, they place emphasis on therapeutic enjoyment and provide opportunities to be social. Activities such as crosswords and puzzles improve concentration, short / long term memory and reasoning skills whilst crafts and other gentle activities can improve mobility, release tension and help relaxation. We offer emotional support through activity choices and also acknowledge successes and achievements.

We like to celebrate birthdays, special anniversaries, regional / national events, religious observances, cultural activities and encourage trips away from the care homes such as meals out, shows or theatre and shopping trips.


Our chef prepares all meals on site using fresh, locally sourced produce and can cater for health dietary requirements such as diabetes and also for other cuisine needs. The menu rotates on a monthly basis and features a variety of cuisine options. The table below reflects a typical week of evening meal options at a Shaw care home.

There are communal dining areas which are light and airy where you can socialise or have the option of eating in your room.
