Life at the house

ActivitiesWe organise an active social life that is tailored to suit older people,
so there is always something to look forward to and to keep you occupied.

Regular optional social activities include chair exercise sessions every Monday, 'Knit & Natter' sessions on a Wednesday afternoon, and a monthly library delivery service. We have plenty of fun entertainment activities too, such as quizzes and games afternoons, and like to go on regular outings to places of interest such as the local steam train station and Muncaster Castle.

We regularly have coffee mornings to raise money for the home. We also organise events throughout the year, particularly at Christmas.

Dining areaHome-cooked food is very important at Alexander House. Our cooks prepare and serve lunch and high tea daily, and residents provide their own breakfast.

We can cater for different diets, and vegetarian alternatives are available.
