Activities at Bere Grove Care 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.

Hollie Wren

Activities Co-ordinator

Hi, I'm Hollie. I have worked in healthcare for six years taking on a variety of roles. I am so proud to be heading up the activity team and supporting our residents with a life-enriching programme of events. I am highly motivated and love sharing my creative and imaginative side with everyone. I truly believe age is just a number and there is nothing we cannot achieve if we work together. 

I like to create a person-centred activity programme so each resident gets the opportunity to enjoy what they love. This is their time to relax, enjoy and have fun.

Life at Bere Grove Care Home

Ice Creams For Spring

Our residents and staff enjoyed their first ice cream of Spring yesterday with a range of different flavours and toppings to choose from.

The residents sat in the garden and enjoyed the warm spring weather looking out at our beautiful garden that the gardening club have been working hard on.

Whatever floats your goat!

This week we had a visit from The Pont Pals Family here at Bere Grove

Mavis and Josie took a tour around our home to say hello to all our residents and staff.

We then went outside into the sunshine for a run around and a groom by our residents.

Bird Box Painting

This week at Bere Grove our residents decorated their own bird boxes. Then Paul, with direction from Mavis, hung them outside.

The colours used were so vibrant and welcoming and we hope they attract a variety of birds. We really enjoy using our creative skills and we are looking forward to the next project.

Sunny Lunch Date

This week, a few of our residents wanted to go out for lunch at Oh So's Coffee shop Horndean so that is exactly what we did!

The sun was shining, the food was delicious and the company was great. We cant wait to do it again soon.

Knit and Natter with a special guest!

Our knit and natter community group had a few new members join us this morning, Its the taking part that counts and he had a bundle of fun! and a bundle of wool!

Anyone is welcome to join us every other Monday morning to our Community Knit and Natter group.

Visit to the Waterlooville Men's Shed

This morning our Home Services Advisor, Megan, popped down to the Waterlooville Men's Shed to say hello and drop of some sweet treats. They are currently making us a donation box to put in Bere Grove so she was able to sneak a peak at the progress of this!

Of course Megan couldn't leave before having a cuppa and getting to know some of shedders. Sounds like a Friday morning well spent!
