Meet our Activities Coordinator, Francesca Miracco
Hello. I am Fran and I lead the Activities Team at Brampton View. I have previously worked here as a Healthcare Assistant so I know the residents well. I love providing a range of activities, exercise and social occasions for residents to choose from every day. A typical week will include crafts, baking, walks in the garden, an outing in the minibus, food tasting, indoor exercise, table-top games, a quiz, a virtual visit to a place of interest and a birthday celebration or other special occasion. Please let me know if you have any ideas for new activities and I will be pleased to arrange them.
Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience, and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
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 Brampton View Care Home
Keeping fit in the heat
On the hottest day of the year so far Bob the Osteopath's 'Move More Feel Better' class was slightly gentler this week at Brampton View. With the doors and windows open, and glasses of water to hand, we enjoyed some stretches and exercises for our joints.
Happy Birthday, Maureen!
Maureen was delighted with her birthday cake, thanks to the kitchen team at Brampton View.
Relaxing with a jigsaw
Clive is enjoying some relaxing time at Brampton View, doing a jigsaw of Burano Island in Venice.
Popping next door to the pub
We are so lucky to have a lovely pub next door to Brampton View. We have little outings there to enjoy lovely food and friendly banter.
Congratulations, Your Majesty
Residents at Brampton View enjoyed lots of Jubilee cakes, parties, entertainment, games and decorations to congratulate Her Majesty. We invited families and friends to our celebrations and recalled past Jubilees and the Coronation. It was a wonderful long weekend that we will remember.
So pleased to be outside
How lovely it is to be outside in the sunshine enjoying the garden and countryside at Brampton View.
