Meet our Activities Coordinator, Malwina Hamraoui

My name is Malwina and I joined Ashby House as an Activities Coordinator in June 2016. I originally worked nights, where I got to meet many lovely residents and, after one year, I began working day shifts. I quickly realised that this was something I am passionate about; spending time with residents and making sure that they have fun and enjoy themselves at Ashby House is very rewarding.

I enjoy creating themed decorations for special events and baking with residents. It fills me with joy to come to work every day. I believe that, with smiles on our faces, we can make a big difference to the world.

Activities at Ashby House

Our Activities Coordinators are constantly striving to enrich peoples lives here at Ashby House. We stimulate people both physically and mentally by organising fun filled, group and individual activities to promote the well-being of those we support.

There are regular outings in our very own minibus and visits from PAT dog therapists, church services, musicians, dancers, and local school children. We also have our very own 'Good Life' gardening club, where we grow our own produce, which we then use in our cooking club. We also host weekly bingo sessions which are proving very popular and are growing in numbers.

A special thank you to our volunteers

Ashby House is a special place with special people. We are very lucky to have lovely volunteers who regularly visit Ashby and give their time to residents and offer any help they can give. We would like to say a big thank you from us all!

Interactive Table

We are always looking for new and exciting ideas for activities here at Ashby House. We recently had a visit from a gentleman from omiVista Mobile who came to the home and bought a display interactive table with him. It was incredibly fun and the room was full of laughter as we played around with it. Hopefully one day it'll stay in the home for good!

A garden refresh!

A group of 25 amazing people from Homebase came to help refresh our garden recently. They were incredibly hard working and did an incredible job! The atmosphere in the garden was full of happiness and joy as we watched the garden transform. We can't wait to see the garden blossom into life now!
