Meet our Activities Coordinator, Hannah Mulholland

Hannah goes above and beyond her duties to ensure that all residents at Badgeworth court experience a fulfilled and content life. She is determined that every one of the residents should be able to enjoy an outing, regardless of their care needs.

Hannah is naturally bubbly and enthusiatic about her role and the difference she and her colleagues are making to residents' lives. As a result, she has created a 'Whole Team' approach at the home, leading to a culture where they celebrate life.

Shetland ponies come to visit

Badgeworth court residents were pleased and surprised when they had a very special visit from the beautiful Shetland ponies. The ponies went to visit every resident and spent time with those in their rooms, the ponies even went in the lift to the first floor! Much to the resident’s amusement. Manager Xin said “The resident’s faces light up when they see animals coming into the home and we are very much looking forward to seeing them again soon”

Open day celebrations

Our open day at Badgeworth court was a huge success, the opening of our brand new vintage tea room enticed our guests into the home. The room was decorated from head to toe in quaint and floral decorations, with fresh flowers on each table and vintage tea cups and saucers. The chef made an exquisite array of miniature cakes including; profiteroles, scones and jam, chocolate brownies and sponge cakes topped with fresh fruit. The live classical music was beautiful to listen to, with a live violinist and pianist playing classics such as ‘Nessun Dorma’ and ‘A nightingale in Barclay square’. We look forward to our next open day on 20th October. Hope to see you all there!

Beatrix potter museum

We visited the Beatrix Potter Museum with some residents recently. Tucked away in the old back streets near Gloucester Cathedral it brought back a lot of memories for our residents. The museum provides unique gifts and collectibles in a quaint, old world shop with a small museum upstairs. The residents and staff thoroughly enjoyed visiting the shop and some bought gifts home with them. It was a great day out had by all.

Gloucester Cathedral

Badgeworth Court is located near the historical Gloucester Cathedral, which is a perfect place to take our residents on a day trip. We recently went there with 3 residents who absolutely loved it. We walked around the grounds and looked at the beautiful architecture inside, which one of our residents helped design! We sat in the Cathedrals garden while having our lunch, and the resident loved admiring the beautiful building and listening to the bells chime which everyone found very peaceful. It was a lovely day had by all and we look forward to returning.

Church service

Every other Wednesday we are lucky enough to have our local church ‘Badgeworth Praise’ come to visit.  Their favorite hymns are heard all the way down corridors as our residents sing to their hearts content. At the end of the service a Holy Communion is offered to everyone especially those prefer to stay in their rooms during the Church service. We enjoy building bonds with our local community at Badgeworth court.
