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 Bluebell Park Care Home
Here at Bluebell Park, we were so pleased to receive these flowers from Mrs Bouquets Flowers, which she kindly donated to our residents to make up for their families not being able to visit on
Mother’s Day. We made sure they were all distributed throughout the home!
Pop In For A Cuppa
We held our own Pop In for A Cuppa afternoon to help raise money for Dementia UK. We had a lovely selection of coke and drinks on offer and also helpful literature for visitors to
take. Our residents were able to enjoy all the treats as well.
Flower Arranging for Valentine’s Day
Our residents were treated to a flower arranging class from local florist, Mrs Bouquet. They had a lovely morning creating fantastic displays for the home. We will certainly be doing this again as it was a great success.
All Around The Shire visited Bluebell Park and performed their Mealtime Experience programme. They brought different items from years gone by and encouraged our residents to talk about their experiences and discuss and remember the items that they brought in.
Local florist, Charlotte, who owns No 61 in Chellaston, came to Bluebell Park to get some of our residents involved in making a Christmas wreath. A great afternoon was had by all!
One of our residents celebrated their 103rd birthday here at Bluebell Park. It was a pleasure to be able to celebrate with Hilda and her family. Congratulations from us all!
