Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Esondol Khurelee

Hi, my name is Es, and I started working at Bluebell Park in 2016. I started out as a Hostess and thoroughly enjoyed interacting with residents, and I learnt a lot.

When a vacancy on the activities team became available, I applied and was very happy to be accepted.

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.

Life at our home

Animal Magic

Residents enjoyed a lovely afternoon with 'fluffy' animals when Wild Science visited us. We were joined by rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and a chinchilla. This was a great opportunity for the residents to hold and pet the animals.

Summer Fête

The sun shone down on us during our Summer Fête.

The proceedings commenced with a resident officially opening the fête, followed by families and residents enjoying the tombola, hook-a-duck, tin can alley and food freshly prepared by our Chef. We also enjoyed singing entertainment from Neil Richardson.

We raised £406, which is a fantastic total. Thank you to everyone who came to support us.

Memory Walk

A member of our housekeeping team – Tracey Solomon – signed up to take part in a Memory Walk for Dementia UK.

To show support, a few residents and their loved ones got involved and enjoyed a little walk around the canal path behind Bluebell Park.

Although it was a rather windy day, this did not stop our determined residents from getting involved.

Congratulations to Tracey, who has so far raised £480 for Dementia UK; and thank you to residents and their loved ones for their contribution.

Some residents enjoyed cake and tea during a visit to our local marina. As you can see from their smiles, a great day was had by all.
