Activities at Bloomfield Care Centre

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.

Cathy Jallow

Activities Coordinator

Hello, My name is Cathy and I am the Activities Coordinator at Bloomfield care centre. 

I joined the team here at Bloomfield in August 2017 as carer and have since moved into Activities. 

The Activities role is varied and one which allows me to plan amazing activities for our residents to ensure their days are filled with lots of fun, laughter and social interaction. 

I am always looking for new activity ideas as well as new places to visit, so please give me a call to discuss our life enrichment programme further.

Oakham Treasures

We took a trip out in our mini bus to Oakham Treasures in Portbury Bristol Its one of the largest museums of farming and retail history an are lucky to have it so near. We looked around at all the items remembering and chatting about them. Peter said he could remember lots of the items and how nice it was to see them again. This was followed by fish and chips at Portishead by the duck pond.

VE Day

To celebrate VE and D Day we reminisced about the events which took place in the days gone by. We had a lovely war time sing along which was followed by tea and cakes made by our Chef. In our memory lane community we made some crafts with poppies which was very enjoyable.

Whitehall Garden Centre

Here at Bloomfield Care Centre we enjoy regular visits to Garden Centres we visit Whitehall in Whitchurch often to browse at the lovely flowers and local produce in the farm shop. Peter said how much he enjoyed looking and smelling the flowers, Betty chose herself a nice pot of jam and Betty was happy to wonder around all the bedding plants.
