Meet our Activities Coordinator, Tanella Robinson

My name is Tanalla and I have worked at Bluebell Park for 3 years.  I started here as a Carer and decided to move over to Activities as I really enjoy spending quality time with the residents, whether it be spending 1:1 time with them or participating in group activities. When we all come together and everyone is interacting, smiling and laughing, it makes me very happy.”

Activities at Bluebell Park

Here at Bluebell Park our aim is to enrich the lives of our residents, through group, and individual activities.

We have a wide range of activities designed to mentally, and physically stimulate the people we care for, including regular trips out in the mini bus, and taking part in the community led events that happen in the village we live in. We hold monthly resident meetings so our planning reflects their wishes, and requests, for example we now hold a regular bingo club (which residents families love to attend) and a bowling afternoon which the gentlemen here particularly enjoy. Entertainers and musicians regularly come into the home and families and friends are always welcome to attend too.

Activities are one of the most important aspects of our care home, and we strive to have a full range on offer. Our team here at Bluebell are dedicated to ensuring our residents enjoy, and get as much out of our entertainment as possible. It is without a doubt our mission is to make sure that life at Bluebell is active, fun, and most of all happy.

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 Bluebell Park Care Home

Festive sing-a-long

This afternoon we enjoyed a festive sing-a-long here at Bluebell Park raising the roof with our musical renditions. We had a selection of cheeses from around the world, served with crackers and delicious chutney, washed down with wine and of course no festive afternoon would be without home-made mince pies to indulge in!

Christmas decorations

In preparation for the upcoming Christmas festivities, we spent time decorating our home with colourful themed ornaments, lights and baubles.

Our residents had fun creating the home’s Christmas display and got involved in arts and crafts sessions to paint baubles and make the beautiful decorations for our Christmas tree.

We held a special lights switch-on ceremony, where we turned on the Christmas lights at the home.

Everyone had an amazing time and we are all looking forward to the holidays.

Festive crafts

Residents of Bluebell enjoyed a festive arts and crafts session. They decorated pine cones creating Christmas trees, sharing memories of their family Christmas traditions whilst indulging in delicious hot chocolate drinks and home-made mince pies.

Magic of the Nutcracker

We experienced the magic of the Nutcracker with a special interactive workshop led by English National Ballet Associate Artists.

Our residents were able to take a magical journey thorough Edwardian London and to learn more about the enchanted Nutcracker characters: Clara, the Mouse King, and her valiant Nutcracker doll.   The session included a chair-based dance workshop, clips of the ballet on stage and a Christmas carol sing-along, truly enjoyed by all.

Elf Day

We swapped our uniforms for costumes on National Elf Day in an effort to raise funds to help people living with dementia.

Launched by the Alzheimer’s Society and delivered directly from the North Pole, Elf Day was created to sprinkle some festive cheer on fundraising towards finding a cure for dementia.

We were able to enjoy elf-themed games, quizzes and delicious sweet and savoury treats, prepared by our talented chef.
