About Us

Kankinya Activities


We have a comprehensive activity program that is tailored to the wants and needs of residents. Some examples of activities that we conduct for our residents are hand massages, manicures, group activities, craft, bingo, quizzes, outings, exercises, news reading and celebrations of cultural days. As well as all these activities we have a program tailored for the men in our home to keep them entertained and social, this is called the “Men’s Club”. This is where they get to go for a quiet drink and all kinds of social activities to keep them active and entertained.

Kankinya also participates in offering most religious denominations a weekly service to keep our residents close to their faith.

Kankinya provides onsite Physiotherapy in our Clinic Room; our Physiotherapists carry many years of experience and will do everything to make the residents stay comfortable during their time with us at Kankinya. Kankinya has a Music Therapy program that functions at flexible times throughout the week, the music therapist plays  lovely old songs which is accompanied by piano and is a real hit. The residents and staff all sing along and have a great time.

Kankinya also provides a Diversional Therapy program round the week. Our leading Therapist Kay has been with us for over twenty five years and she knows our residents very well and she designs programmes for them accordingly. Every day there is something arranged to engage our Residents; movies, craft, gardening, bingo, reading, bowls and even table tennis for the braver soul. The Diversional Therapists at Kankinya help make their time with us as enjoyable as possible.
