Events and activities are hugely enjoyed at Randolph Hill 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 Randolph Hill.
From learning new skills to pursuing lifelong hobbies, we offer lots to keep our residents busy, and our full schedule always balances activities designed to stimulate our residents’ minds, and those that get their bodies moving for gentle exercise.
Our Activity Programme
We are very proud of the work that our activity staff do and we’re always keen to hear from our residents about what activities they’d like to do, ensuring we create a schedule of activities that’s tailored to them.
Below is a sample activity schedule for Randolph Hill, Dunblane. Please note, activities vary from home to home and time of year.
Day Trips and Outings
Having our own minibus will give our residents the opportunity not only to attend events and classes within Randolph Hill but also to also take advantage of visiting the local community. As we come out of the restrictions brought in with the pandemic, we are re-building relationships with the Dunblane community and hope to re-introduce and accompany outings within the local area such as services at Dunblane Cathedral, attend coffee mornings, and pick up their own shopping.
We plan to also run day trips to local sites of interest in and around Dunblane. These trips have been popular in the past, allowing our residents to see places they may never have visited before, and enjoy what this beautiful part of the world has to offer.
Many of our residents are also keen participants in the Cycling Without Age scheme. This allows care home residents to enjoy the freedom of riding a bike, even if they have reduced mobility, by offering free bike rides on trishaws. Residents can feel the wind in their hair and share stories with the young volunteer rider taking them on a trip. It’s a great way to build intergenerational relationships, and many of our residents feel relaxed and peaceful after a trip with Cycling Without Age.
Activities Within Randolph Hill
We also offer a full programme of activities within the home. Our residents love to get pampered, and we often hold aromatherapy and foot spa sessions, which they come away from with a feeling of relaxation. We also offer massage to ease any aches and pains our residents might be feeling, and leave them more calm, as well as hairdressing and manicures to boost confidence and leave our residents feeling great about themselves.
We also offer plenty of activities to get our residents moving as even a little gentle, regular physical exercise can improve muscle strength leading to that all-important sense of wellbeing. We often play parachute games with our residents, and many enjoy getting out in the garden for a walk.
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 Randolph Hill 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.

Thank you for the loving care and kindness that mum received. We would especially like to thank everyone who cared for mum in the final weeks of her life, and the way that we were always made to feel included and never in the way.
