All schemes have shared facilities for residents to use and running costs are included in the rent and service charge. These may be used at any reasonable time.
On occasion the facilities may also be used to provide services for older people living locally, for example luncheon clubs.
- Events and activities
We employ a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator to help run activities and events at your scheme.
- Shared lounge
The shared lounge is provided for formal and informal social and recreational activities. The lounge provides a general meeting point for coffee mornings, games evenings and other events. If the lounge is used regularly by other people we will discuss this with you first. You and your families may also be able the hire the lounge for your own events.
The laundry services are exclusively for the use of A2Dominion Care & Support residents and their personal laundry. To ensure everyone is able to use the laundry there may be a rota system in operation. The Scheme Manager will tell you about the arrangements to use the laundry at your scheme.
There is a payphone in each scheme for you to use, should you need to.
- Guest rooms
Each scheme provides a guest room so friends and relatives can visit. We operate a booking system and there is usually a small charge to cover the costs. If you have guests to stay, you are responsible for ensuring the guest room is left in a clean and tidy condition.
- Restaurants and lunch rooms
On most schemes a midday meal is provided. Details of what is available can be provided by the Scheme Manager.
The grounds and gardens are provided for the use of all residents. On some schemes we employ a contractor to maintain the areas, on others we directly employ a gardener. You are welcome to cultivate small areas of the garden and may wish to have space for tubs and baskets. The Scheme Manager will be able to help if you want to "adopt" an area of the garden.
- Other facilities
There may be other facilities such as assisted bathrooms, hairdressing, chiropody and so on. The Scheme Manager will tell you what is available at the scheme.
