Meet our Activities Coordinator, Della Bordley

Hi my name is Della and I am an Activities Coordinator here at Adlington Manor.  I have had many years’ experience working in the Health and Social care sector in  various roles. My  aim  is to promote and maintain life enrichment through activities. I do  this through  supporting individuals to take part in a wide range of activities.  The main focus of my role is to ensure that residents have fun and that we provide exciting and therapeutic activities for everyone to benefit from.

I like to organise a wide variety of activities to suit everyone’s needs in the homes weekly programme, including monthly entertainment, outings and animal visits.

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.

Activities and Events Partnerships

As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

Flower power at Adlington Manor

Today we celebrated International Flower Day in style, a great way in mid-winter to bring joy and happiness into the home.

Our residents took part in flower-based activities throughout the day including a flower arranging session and a flower quiz which everyone really enjoyed.

The collective knowledge about flowers gained from years of gardening experience was very impressive.

It was a lovely day, enjoyed by all.
