DAILY LIFE AT VIDA
Every element of Vida Court has been designed with our residents’ health and well-being in mind.
Vida Court has been carefully designed and built to our exact specification to allow our residents to live healthily, happily and as actively as possible under the expert care of the Vida Court team.
Dining & Nutrition
Nutritious food plays a big role in keeping elderly and vulnerable people in good health. We understand that encouraging your residents to eat well can be challenging at times – that’s why we put so much effort into creating an extensive choice of nutritious meals and special diet options to ensure our residents not only receive the necessary nutrition but also enjoy mealtimes.
We do have set mealtimes at Vida Court, however, residents can eat when and where they would like, be it in one of our dining areas or in the privacy of their own room.
Wellbeing & Lifestyle
At Vida Court, there is a TV lounge, café kitchen, coffee shop, cinema, newsagent, faith room, garden rooms and a selection of sitting areas which have been designed to provide a range of opportunities for socialising, taking part in activities or simply enjoying some quiet time.
There are regular activities which residents can choose to take part in if they wish, including musical entertainment, exercise classes and arts & crafts. Residents are also encouraged and supported to pursue their own interests and hobbies.
We are committed to supporting our residents to remain involved in community life. Many of our residents enjoy taking trips to the local parks, farms, gardens, cafes, library, local events, groups or places of worship.
