Keeping our minds, bodies and social skills active is part of the “good life”. We need balanced lifestyles, not just balanced diets – although at Pembury that is always a priority too. As we place high value on meeting our residents’ needs on every level, there are a number of activities and lifestyle-orientated facilities at our lodges for a well-rounded retirement experience. There may be some variations in offerings from lodge to lodge, but below is a general overview of the activities and uplifting experiences you can expect at Pembury Retirement Lodges.
Nothing beats a good game night filled with laughter and even a prize or two. Bingo and Bridge are firm favourites and always provides loads of entertainment for those who participate
We have a wonderful occupational therapist who spends her time between our Jo’burg-based lodges, arranging and facilitating various craft workshops. These workshops present great opportunities to “be a little arty” and learn a new skill.
Getting out and about on a shopping excursion for some retail therapy or a change of scenery is a highlight for many of our residents. Most of our lodges have their own shuttle that runs once a week to local shopping centres with a member of staff on hand for assistance if necessary.
Live entertainment is always a major event on the calender! We love inviting local artists to perform and delight our residents with their talents and abilities. It’s the perfect time to just sit back, relax and enjoy…
Hair and Beauty
Everyone loves feeling fabulous and that certainly doesn’t stop once you reach a certain age. On-site hairdressing is wonderful little luxury that makes it easy to look good and feel great. We also offer manicures and pedicures for a well-groomed appearance all round.
Our Madison lodge is leading the way with their library facility, so if you’re a big reader, this might be an added draw card for you!
Keep moving! Yes, we love to get our residents up and excited about low-impact exercises that are not only good for the heart, but great for releasing feel-good endorphins and boosting moods too.
