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
Life at Adlington Manor Care Home
Virtual trip to the Donkey Sanctuary
Across our services, Residents enjoyed a fantastic virtual tour of the Donkey Sanctuary Manchester. Residents were thrilled to meet the lovely herd of donkeys, including Henry and his best friend Tiny Tim and to learn more about their every day care. They were introduced to the sanctuary’s work and the impact they make to the lives of donkeys in need worldwide. The virtual experience was truly enjoyed by all.
World's Biggest Coffee morning
In recognition of Macmillan’s Coffee Morning, we hosted our very own tea party for residents and colleagues. Our home was specially decorated for the occasion, our talented chef prepared a variety of cakes, cupcakes and delicious treats following Macmillan Cancer Support’s recipes and we all got involved in fun-filled games and activities.
Home steps back in time....
Colleagues at Adlington Manor stepped back in time as they hosted a medieval themed day to the delight of residents. Colleagues dressed up in period attire including doublets, tunics, corsets and striking headpieces. Everyone was transported to the Middle Ages with themed entertainment, including a medieval banquet.
Danielle Cheetham, Deputy Manager said “We had a fantastic day, everyone really got behind the theme and we saw some wonderful costumes. The residents loved seeing everyone in fancy dress, and there was a real sense of camaraderie across the home”. We are now looking forward to hosting our next themed day.
Royal Botanic Garden
Our homes enjoyed a wonderful virtual tour of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh with Community Engagement Manager, Charlotte Walker, and Botanic Cottage Operations Co-ordinator, Laura Gallagher.
The residents were thrilled to learn more about the history of the beautiful Garden, which is now a home to an impressive plant collection from around the world.
Charlotte and Laura also gave a demonstration of making fresh herbal tea and were happy to answer our questions. The virtual experience was truly enjoyed by all who joined.
