Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lisa Iles
Hi, I'm Lisa, I've been at Bloomfield for over 12 years in various roles, starting as a Hostess. I am currently working within the activities team, which I love. I really enjoy making the residents smile. maintaining their independence and generally brightening their day with the fun activities we do.
Activities at Bloomfield
We host a wide range of activities and events here for residents to stimulate them both physically and mentally. Relatives can often be found taking part; for example, they will some times join us on minibus trips and to enjoy entertainers and musical events. There is regular involvement from the local community, with ministers holding services for us weekly, visits from our PAT dog, and a good volunteer network. Additionally, we have recently opened a Dementia Café, which is held on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Activities are an essential part of residents' lives, so we strive to keep them active with a focus on what they can achieve and that life here is fun.
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 Bloomfield Care Centre
Keeping active at Bloomfield
Some of our residents at Bloomfield love to keep active and enjoy daily exercise classes, including all the exercises they used to do when they were back at home. Keep it up ladies!
Knitting for children in Africa
One of our residents loves to knit, especially blankets! She knits every day and when the blankets are ready she sends them back to her husband and he then sends them to children in Africa via a charity. We are so proud of all the amazing charitable work she is doing.
Local Choir Singers
We had our local choir singers join us outside our home recently while our residents watched and listened to their beautiful voices. A few of our residents used to be in this choir so it was very meaningful experience to them.
We received numerous lovely festive cards from local schools and organisations. This is one of our residents - enjoying a Christmas card from our local school in Paulton.
Our residents got involved in a wreath making masterclass and created a beautiful festive wreath. This is something that they really enjoyed doing.
