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.
Life at Atfield House Care Home
Mayor Visits our virtual world
The Mayor of Hounslow took time from his busy schedule to join us via Zoom for a morning of tea, cake and a good old chat. He thanked the staff for their hard work and dedication and also spent time talking to the residents about life and what is happening in our borough. Everyone had a lovely time and we cant wait to welcome him back whether on Zoom or in person.
Love is in the air
Valentines is always a special time, staff make sure that everyone receives a special gift, lunch and has a chance to reminisce about times of their own love stories. This lovely couple celebrated a day of over 50 years of memories.
Chinese New Year Celebrations
Staff and residents at Atfield House in Isleworth welcomed in the Year of the Ox with a day of celebrations and activities.
Inspired by Chinese culture and traditions, lucky red envelopes were exchanged and the home was decorated with hanging red lanterns. Residents learnt all about the traditions and superstitions of Chinese New Year. Head Chef cooked up an oriental feast for lunch and residents enjoyed the delicious food washed down with pots of Chinese tea.
Door step deliveries from local school
Residents and staff were treated to a delicious afternoon treat. Children from the local school bought, made and then delivered a plethora of Indian cuisine and sweet cakes and cookies. Everyone just loved the kindness behind the gesture and really enjoyed the food too.
Residents and staff are delighted to have received the first dose of the Corona Virus Vaccine, all from the comfort of their home. Our local surgery St Margaret's led the vaccinations. Residents were made to feel calm and at ease throughout the whole process.
When the snow is falling outside, what a better way to spend an afternoon. Baking and decorating sweet treats for the whole home to enjoy. All whilst watching as the garden turns into a winder wonderland.
