Meet our Activities Coordinator, Simona Maria
Hi my name is Simona. I am the activities Coordinator here at Atfield House. I started my career with Barchester in 2015. Where i worked as the admin assistant. From there I crossed over and helped the team with hospitality. When the position for activities came up I jumped at the chance. I have been doing this role for since 2019 and have learnt so much. The residents have taught me how to play scrabble & now its a game we all enjoy together.
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

Fun in the Sun
We try to enjoy the sunshine as much as possible, and Beer Day was a great reason to go out onto the terrace. The drinks and the company were great, and we had a fantastic time!
World Photo Day
World Photo Day was a lot of fun. Staff members brought in adorable baby photos and our residents took turns guessing who they were and picking the cutest ones!
Our Book Club has temporarily mood location. We took advantage of the recent sunshine and had our sessions in the garden.
We are excited about Friendship Day! These hand-made accessories will be going to a local nursery and hopefully make some children very happy.
Keeping hobbies going
We know the importance of maintaining independence and encouraging them to keep hobbies alive and enjoying them. James was always an avid gardener and he loves nothing more than pottering around the garden and tending to the tomato and cucumber plants.
