Meet our Activities Coordinator, Karina Ismail & Michelle Martin

Michelle and Karina host a range of activities within Ashcombe House. They base their activities on residents' likes and dislikes, and are always keen to help reignite old passions in residents. They enjoy arranging social events in and out of the home. 

Ashcombe if a very friendly home, where all staff work together to make residents happy and their time with us enjoyable.

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.

Kitty Delight

One of our Carers also fosters animals for the RSPCA and brought some baby kittens in to show the residents how she carries out feeding and washing the kittens, as the mother had abandoned them after birth.

Summer Fête

We hosted our Summer Fête on the 28th July. There was a tombola, a raffle, a BBQ, cocktails, live entertainment and face painting for the families. The ice cream van also turned up, which was a lovely surprise for everyone.

Activities Coordinators, Michelle and Karina, worked extremely hard, and the day was enjoyed by all families, residents and staff members.

For the Love of Music

A new entertainer and her accordion came to get the residents singing and dancing; even some of the staff were up on their feet, as the music was so good.

Beach Trip

We spent the day at South Sea Beach on Wednesday 18th July, where residents enjoyed fish and chips on the pier followed by ice-cream along the sea front as they took in the sea air. It brought back many memories for some and, for others, it was their first beach outing in a very long while.

Lunch in the Garden

Some residents enjoyed lunch in the garden as the weather has been so spectacular lately. They had a chance to get to know each other better whilst enjoying a nice meal and a glass or two of rosé wine out in the sunshine.

Pet Therapy

One of our Carers recently adopted three beautiful orphan kittens. She kindly bought them in to show some of the residents and one resident in particular was very overjoyed and loved having cuddles with them.
