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
Life at Atfield House Care Home
International Firefighters Day
The local community is very important to us at Atfield. On International Firefighters Day we paid a visit to our local fire station with goodies and a hand-painted card.
We took advantage of the lovely weather and decided to try some amateur gardening. Everyone is excited to watch our tiny plants grow.
International Day of Museums
We marked International Museum Day with a trip to the Eel Pie Island Museum and a walk by the embankment. We learned about local history and culture, had ice-cream and enjoyed the sunshine!
Families, friends and our community are so welcome here at Atfield House.
This welcome is often delivered by Carol, who is part of our administration team. Carol has been with our team for over 25 years and we are really hoping she can manage another 25 years as she is such an asset to our home.
Carol is pictured below with our fantastic Deputy Manager Carmen, who has also stood the test of time here at Atfield House and has been with us a massive 18 years.
St Patrick's Day
Here at Atfield House we love a celebration. St Patricks day is a celebration of Irish culture on or around 17th March. On the day this year we celebrated by dancing and listening to Irish music, enjoyed Irish beer and cup cakes. A good time was had by all
International Woman's Day
Here on International Woman's Day our female residents and staff had an amazing treat from our NEW General Manager, Subin Sebastian.
Our fantastic female workforce were greeted and treated on arrival at work by a red carpet, balloons, chocolate, drinks and a beautiful, individual rose
Subin then visited each female resident with the same treats and an individual rose. It was so lovely to see.
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
