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.
Life at Bloomfield Care Centre
Residents and staff at Bloomfield had a festive treat making Christmas cakes. They had great fun mixing and stirring the ingredients. The smells were wonderful!
Christmas is such an important time of year for us all, and keeping up with tradition is very important. Residents had such a lovely time reminiscing with us all.
Ladies & Gentlemen
Residents at Bloomfield recently enjoyed a 'Ladies & Gentleman' afternoon. While ladies enjoyed sherry and fairy cakes, the men supped on beer and a pie. Staff have planned for the event to take place every other week, as it was such a success.
Local PCSO visits Bloomfield

Staff and Residents had so much fun at their annual wig party. Everyone got involved for the afternoon and really lifted everyone's spirits.
Treats for Everyone
Staff at Bloomfield Care Centre in Paulton recently enjoyed treats which included handmade soap, drinks, health bars, snacks and biscuits. Lilly, a 14 year old student, who lives locally, recognised the need to spread cheer to our front line staff. Lilly contacted local business’s, asking them to give their support at this difficult time, she was inundated with gifts and was delighted to be able to supply Bloomfield staff with such wonderful treats.
