Bedhampton Court, part of Healthcare Homes Group, is delighted to announce the flourishing success of its ‘British Sign Language’ (BSL) introduction course. The program, led by Wendy, who has learned Level 2 BSL, has been instrumental in fostering a sense of community and stimulate learning among residents.

This initiative, spearheaded by Wendy (Bedhampton Court’s Activities Co-ordinator), has garnered enthusiastic participation from a group of residents. Weekly sessions have seen residents diligently practice the basics of sign language, showcasing their commitment and eagerness to learn, as well as spend valuable time with each other and the team.

A particularly heartwarming development is the recent enrolment of a resident’s mother into the course. This not only enhances the overall learning experience, but provides a beautiful opportunity for the mother and daughter to share in this educational journey together. By offering diverse and inclusive activities, the facility aims to contribute to the overall well-being and quality of life of its residents.

“I had the idea back in December to introduce sign language as a chance for residents to try a new hobby. It’s wonderful to see how much our residents are enjoying the course, and even more special to have family members joining in.” said Wendy, Activities Co-ordinator and organiser of the BSL introduction sessions at Bedhampton Court.

As Bedhampton Court continues to prioritise innovative and inclusive programs under the Healthcare Homes umbrella, the success of the British Sign Language course underscores the facility’s commitment to enriching the lives of its residents.
