Our Activities

Sports at Sunfield Home

Sport plays a very big part in the life of all the residents here at the Home. Besides the obvious physical benefits, it nurtures teamwork, sportsmanship and happy camaraderie, which are so much part of the ethos of our Home. Everyone joins in to a lesser or greater degree with lots of encouragement from our trained sports staff.

Sunfield holds an annual Sports Day in which all residents participate. It’s a marvellous day that highlights the sporting talents of all. There is also an annual Gala held at the Sunfield pool, where all residents get the opportunity to participate, regardless of their swimming abilities.

We are extremely proud of our residents, some of whom have competed in: The ​KAZNA II for athletics at the SASA II Winter Elite Games; The KAZNA II for Table Tennis at the SASA II Winter Elite Games; The KAZNA II at the SASA II All Age Summer Games; The South African National Finals of the Special Olympics; and The Special Olympics.

Would you like to sponsor one of our high achieving sportsmen or women? Often our sports teams don’t have funding for the equipment, clothing or travel costs to realise their dreams and your contribution could make all the difference.

Sports Offered

Occupational Therapy

We employ a full time professional Occupational Therapist and she is supported by a Workshop Manager and a dedicated team of occupational and workshop assistants. A varied and structured programme is in place to provide activities that are suitable for each individual, according to their ability.

These tasks give residents purpose, a sense of achievement and facilitates their overall development. It enables them to experience satisfaction as they constantly improve their functional capacity and quality of life. 

Art is a creative outlet and our residents enjoy expressing themselves through various mediums. The residents can engage in woodwork, beadwork, pottery, rug-making, sewing, cooking and baking. 

Many of these products are sold through our onsite shop and/or through local markets. 

Dancing is always a popular activity and residents have thoroughly enjoyed being taught ballroom dancing, line dancing and even Zulu gumboot dancing! The Occupational Therapy Department has more recently included project-based work for local businesses. Our residents enjoy being employed in meaningful activities for local industry and have taken on assembly projects for manufacturers. 

Do you have a project that requires careful attention to detail and could be an occupational therapy project for our residents?

we’d welcome the opportunity to discuss your project.

Special Days

Residents participate in events to promote the Home and help raise funds. They take great pride in helping and engaging actively to make each event a special occasion.

Our growing numbers at events are testimony to the importance the Home places on encouraging family, friends and the local Midlands community to support and honour their achievements.
