Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jenny Knowles

I have been at Adlington Manor since October 2018, and joined after working in the hospitality sector for over 10 years. I love getting to know residents and organising activities to make them smile. I am a mother of one & she loves coming in chatting with residents & partaking in activities. I find it to be a very rewarding role.

Activities at our home

Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.

Valentine's Day

A fabulous day was had by all! We were serenaded by Dave the singer and treated to a glass of pink fizz each. We ended the day by watching Ghost and having a romantic dinner. Each resident got a balloon to remember lost loved ones and, of course, a rose with a chocolate goody bag!

Living Well Community Group

Residents had a great time at the Living Well Community Group; they played bingo, had a good ol' singalong and also did some exercises, which everyone really loved.

Chinese New Year

Residents had fun reading their fortune cookies in celebration of the Year of the Pig. We had prawn crackers on the afternoon tea trolley to continue the celebrations.

Chair Renovation Project

After a couple of residents requested to do a woodwork project, we decided to get an old chair and renovate it. Everyone had fun sanding it down, and the next stage is deciding on the varnish and fabrics. Watch this space for the finished product!

Men in Sheds Donation

Men in Sheds Poynton has donated a bird table to our home. The table has been made by re-cycling furniture from our home that could no longer be used. Thank you, Men in Sheds!
