Meet our Activities Coordinator, Fay Parry

Hello, I'm Fay, the Activities Coordinator here at Bradshaw Manor. I graduated from Glyndwr University with a degree in Complementary Therapies for Healthcare.

The main focus of my role is to ensure that residents have fun and have a role in selecting the activities that we provide here. 

My aim is to provide fun and therapeutic activities for everyone to benefit from. At Bradshaw Manor, we endeavour to provide the best we can for those we support. As we say: the residents do not live in our workplace – we work in their home.

 

Activities at Bradshaw Manor

We are always very busy here at Bradshaw Manor, with lots of different activities available to residents, including arts and crafts, baking club, gardening, flower arranging, 'Music & Movement', 'Time to Listen and a Tipple', group walks, a weekly visit from Shasta the pet therapy dog, one-to-one sessions with residents, weekly hairdresser visits, monthly minibus trips, music memories with Arfon fortnightly, a gentleman's club, a knit & natter club, monthly entertainment, Memory Café on our Memory lane community; aromatherapy sessions, bible stories, music memories, film afternoons with a fresh popcorn machine, reminiscence workshops, and the old favorites: bingo and quizzes.

Our aim is to provide fun and therapeutic activities for everyone to benefit from. At Bradshaw Manor, we endeavor to provide the best we can for everyone we support. As we say: the residents do not live in our workplace – we work in their home.

Summer House Visit

We had a lovely visit from The Summer House Out of School Club. The children visited us from a local club/nursery and we organised an afternoon of activities for the residents and kids.

Everyone enjoyed playing giant Snakes & Ladders, and the children sat with residents to make windmills. Together, they painted and decorated pots to make cress heads. 

Fay, our Activities Coordinator, and Mandy from the Summer House, are planning another visit in the next half term holiday.

Look out in the local Journal newspaper, as this lovely story will be featured soon.

Dementia Awareness Week

To raise awareness for Dementia Awareness Week, we have been busy hosting lots of activities recently.

We have created memory cherry blossom trees, hosted a cake sale and, across the week, we have also been creating a scrap book of memories. Residents and their loved ones have been sharing photos and stories of times gone by. This scrap book will now stay on our Memory Lane community and will be continually added to.

To end our week, we planted a time capsule. In this capsule were photos, activities we have done, royal wedding crafts and the front page of the Daily Post to capsulate the time and date. To tie in with this special time, we also planted a beautiful apple tree that will blossom and grow for residents to enjoy in the future.
