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.

Remembrance Day

We had a very special time commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. A lot of residents, relatives and staff members helped us to prepare for the day by creating some beautiful poppies. A big thanks to the amazing and lovely resident, Joyce, who was an important part of the project.
