Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lucy Wilkinson

Lucy started work with us here at Beeston View on 6th March 2018. She came to us from a background working in the entertainment industry, which she did for 4 years prior. She used to make bookings for corporate events, weddings and special occasions.

Lucy has also spent time working at Chester Zoo as a photographer, where she took pictures of the visitors there. She is used to working with a diverse range of people and has always wanted to work within a care home setting as an Activities Coordinator, so this is an extremely exciting time for her.

Lucy also has lots of musical talent; she plays the ukulele, the guitar and can sing as well.

You will recognise Lucy if you visit us, as she is the one with the bright orange hair!

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 our home

Tarporley Trip

We took another trip in to Tarporley Village recently. Residents love getting involved with the local community and meeting new people whilst we are out and about.

Ride Exercises

We have started having monthly exercise sessions from Andy, who runs a company called 'Ride'. He stops by to see residents at both Beeston View and Iddenshall Hall during his visit, and does a 40 minute session with each.

Residents really enjoy his sessions; he has them doing many different types of exercises, but their favourite seems to be the boxing, which always goes down a treat.

Andy has a way of engaging lots of residents at one time and encouraging them all to join in with both humour and compassion.

Pet Therapy

We are delighted to have a new pet therapy dog at Beeston View. Anya and her mum, Bonnie, visited us for their first time recently and everyone loved meeting them. They will be visiting once a week on a Friday afternoon moving forward.

Tarporley Village

We took a trip into Tarporley Village with some residents. We had a lovely stroll, had a look around the church and did some window shopping. We popped in to see Gaynor at The Flower Shop and we even bumped into some relatives that we all knew. It was lovely to be out in the local community, getting to know new people.

Kitty Delight

We have had some new additions to our cat family here at Beeston View; one of our younger cats had a litter of 4 gorgeous kittens. All 4 have got homes already: 2 have gone to staff members and 2 with one of our District Nurses. They are currently all being weaned on to solid foods and are doing really well.

D.I.Y. at Beeston

Our Head of Maintenance, Jeff, is redecorating in the upstairs dining room at the moment. He likes to get into the spirit of things and was doing his best Frank Spencer impression for the residents, which they loved!

We are hosting a dementia support group for loved ones and carers of those living with dementia. Our first meeting will be held on 15th May between 2:30 and 4:30pm.

It will be a chance for loved ones of Beeston View residents to get together and offer each other advice or coping mechanisms and to share stories, if they so wish. Staff will be available to attend if needed.

We are also encouraging people from local communities who are taking care of someone living with dementia to come along and join us too. The sessions are free and will be held on the 3rd Monday of each month.
