Here at Fidra House, we have a number of activity coordinators, and the planned weekly programme means that there’s something for everyone ─ from singing and trips to the beach to flower arranging and even pet therapy.

We gently encourage all of our residents to join in with activities that will benefit their physical and mental health, whether they’re pursuing a lifelong passion or discovering new interests. Our activity coordinators always try to accommodate particular interests or talents as part of our person-centred approach to care, which means we take a holistic approach to treatment, tailored to each individual.


Our Activity Programme

Events and activities are hugely enjoyed at Fidra House and our dedicated team, full calendar and the availability of our own minibus ensures that the level of participation is high. We pride ourselves on our programme of activities at Fidra House, and we’re always keen to get suggestions for activities from our residents to ensure that our schedule is tailored to them.

Below is a sample activity schedule for Fidra House. Please note, activities vary from home to home and time of year.


Day Trips and Outings

We’re lucky enough to be based in beautiful North Berwick, giving us easy access to explore the rest of East Lothian in our mini buses. Our recent trips have included bus trips to visit the other pretty towns, villages and beachlines dotted along the coastline.

Other community-based activities we run on a regular basis include going to church services, coffee mornings, tea dances and shopping trips.

Activities Within Fidra House

We also have a comprehensive programme of activities within the home. We regularly hold creative activity sessions that our residents can take part in as an individual or a group. From painting to mosaics, these sessions allow our residents to use their imaginations, explore the creative side of their brain, and do something they may never have tried before. Many find arts and crafts to be a very relaxing pastime. We have also enjoyed indoor curling, as it’s a popular choice.

We have also held sponsored garden walks, raising money for charity, and we regularly hold film nights in the lounge, projecting big-name films onto the big screen.


We know how important contact with family and friends is to the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents. At this time, residents are allowed as many visits from all the people they would wish. Please check with Fidra House regarding any additional arrangements that are in place.


Some residents benefit from visiting pets and they are also welcome as long as they are kept under control and do not disturb other residents. Therapets are known to bring many health benefits and visit Fidra House too from time to time.
