Our Activities

At our adult day care centre, Chrysalis Lodge we pride ourselves in offering a diverse range of activities for our guests to enjoy.


We use the 'Butterfly Approach' which is a well established care method and is proven to have real beneficial results for individuals with memory loss problems. The ‘Butterfly Approach’ involves providing a variety of things to do - our guests are then encouraged to choose their own preferred activities which they are then welcome to ‘dip’ in and out of.


This approach ensures guests are active and stimulated and enjoying the company of the other guests in a relaxed, encouraging and supportive environment.

Our Activities Include...

  • Table Games: Cards, Dominoes, Bingo, Quizzes, Board Games, Memory Games, Jigsaws

  • Parlour Games: Skittles, Darts, Hoopla
