The Village Green

Our new Village Green area offers a familiar, safe and welcoming social space for everyone at Hawkinge House to enjoy.
Residents, their family and friends can come and go as they please in an environment that mirrors a traditional village setting. They can enjoy a soft drink in our local ‘pub’ or treat themselves to a quarter pound of sweeties in our sweet shop and post office. If they fancy a little pampering, the Village Green boasts a lovely new hair salon and nail bar. There’s a dedicated arts and crafts area which offers a wide range of daily activities and even bakes its own bread.
“We are delighted that our Village Green is helping families to capture special moments together, says Hawkinge House manager Terry Mullan. “Relatives of our residents tell us that their loved ones ‘feel they have been somewhere special’ when they visit. It’s also given many of our residents with dementia a new lease of life, encouraging them to move around more and socialise with staff and other residents. The Village Green has helped us take relationship centred care to a new level.”
