Chair Basketball and Parachute Game Physical activity is something we try to get as many of our service users involved in as much as possible. We have loads of outdoor and indoor activities for everyone to try.
Music and Movement
We all love music and all at Fife Day Care certainly do. We invite local musician Jackie Raitt along to the groups as often as we can. Jackie plays a super variety of music and tunes to cater for every taste, whether you dance on your seat or prefer the floor clapping and singing along really brings enjoyment to everyone.
Potting the Plants
The green fingered among our group enjoy the benefits of potting plants and making hanging baskets. This activity encourages skills, it's a super hobby. Planting is very therapeutic and is a meaningful activity that makes you feel valued and of worth.
Golf and Darts
Golf and Darts is an old favourite physical activity enjoyed by most, it certainly brings out the competitive side of everyone
Some of the ladies at our groups love a wee pampering session, having their hair, makeup and nails polished and painted including hand and arm massage and a foot spa. Some gentlemen also enjoy the footspa its a great way to have a blether and a relaxing cup of tea.

Reminiscence and Poetry sessions, This year our lovely Treasurer Margaret Morgan has been a regular visitor to our groups. Margaret facilitates reminiscence and poetry sessions with our service users. Everyone thoroughly enjoys them, particularly those with Dementia. Apart from being fun there is evidence that the sessions can improve mood and give a sense of well being which helps raise self esteem especially those with mental abilities such as memory. Combined with Margaret's knowledge of the area whilst growing up in the area her wit and poetry skills, these weekly sessions are a major hit.
Christmas at Grainger Street
The staff and volunteers, with the help of music courtesy of Jackie Raitt do a terrific job of creating a wonderful party atmosphere. The staff prepared and cooked excellent Christmas lunches and snacks. We even had a visit from Santa.
