Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jane Rogers
Hi, I'm Jane, I've been at Bloomfield for over 10 years in various roles. I am currently working within the activities team, which I love. I really enjoy the job and, after being away, I'm always happy to return and see the residents. In my spare time, I love theatre, going for walks and spending time with my beloved granddaughters. I also love spa days and holidays.
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.
