Meet our Activities Coordinator, Hayley Gurklis

Hi, my name is Hayley and I have been working at Ashfields since 2014.

Activities at Ashfields

Our skilled Activities Coordinators are always bright and bubbly, bringing great enthusiasm and ideas into the home. We put on a range of exciting activities, including Zumba sessions, bingo, musicians and entertainers. There are regular outings that incorporate visits to local places of interests, including the seaside, Norwich Cathedral, and boat trips along the Norfolk Broads. All our activities are tailored to the individual needs of residents and help to physically and mentally stimulate them. They are also open to all relatives who would like to participate, as we encourage a family-orientated atmosphere.

Life at our home

National Pizza Day

We were joined by a pizza chef, who kindly volunteered to come into the home from his family-ran business, Donellis, which is located in Norwich city centre.

He brought all of the ingredients, went through what they were and why they are used and also taught us how to make pizza and dough balls.

We made a few pizzas and some dough balls for residents to try.

This is a perfect example of Norwich becoming a demenita-friendly city.
