Residents will be sympathetic to our Christian ethos. Life at Luff House Fulfilled Living In every one of our homes and schemes we express God’s love through compassion and care that helps people live life to the full - fulfilled living. Luff House has an active social life in which residents can take part or follow their own pursuits. We appreciate that each resident has their own individual interests, hobbies and pastimes, and we endeavour to support our residents to maintain this important part of their lives. Our residents are encouraged to lead the lifestyle that they choose, doing as much or as little as they want - residents can simply choose to put their feet up with a daily paper (by arrangement) or a good book from the County Library which visits every month, or from the home’s own collection. Our weekly programme includes activities such as craft, knitting and sewing groups, armchair and active exercise, music sessions, poetry and reminiscence, gardening, flower arranging and cake baking sessions. Various visiting entertainments and church groups come to us on a regular basis. Several hairdressers visit throughout the week. A mobile clothing supplier allows for a little retail therapy in the comfort of your own home, together with occasional craft displays and coffee mornings. Our Christian background is at the heart of both our values and our actions. At Luff House we try to create a community where Christian worship, prayer and support are a core part of daily life. We have daily devotions, a mid-week service and regular communion services in the home. There is an evangelical church just across the road and transport is provided by the church.
