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.
Life at Bloomfield Care Centre
Fun in the Sun
Summer is here and Residents and staff are taking full advantage of the lovely garden. We have been playing dominoes, scrabble and even some live entertainment with instruments to join in too.
Celebrating our wonderful carers
All this week we will be celebrating all the wonderful care staff. Not only here at Bloomfield but those that support people in the community too. We know we would be lost without them, There will be lots of treats throughout the week for them all.
Some shelter from the sun and learning a new skill. Residents really enjoyed the art workshop recently. They were taught how to paint by numbers and what colours to mix and use for maximum effect.
Mayor of Paulton visits
Residents were delighted when the Mayor Cllr Gail Garlick agreed to join us for the afternoon. We wanted to honour all our staff for there hard work and comittment over the last year. So we joined the BANES Council plant a tree campaign and planted one of our own in the grounds, along with a plaque dedicated to all the staff here at Bloomfield. Cllr Gail joined us after for afternoon tea and fizz in the home. We look forward to welcoming her back on our next project.
Live Floristry Masterclass with Bloominghaus
Residents were treated to a virtual flower arranging demonstration with a difference, it was wonderful that our residents were able to follow along and create their own floral displays using flowers from our own garden and the local florist. It was a really enjoyable afternoon, we’re so grateful to Michal and Michael from Blooming Haus for this experience.”
