Meet our Activities Coordinator, Alison Khurana
I have been here since 2015 and have enjoyed helping to keep residents happy and entertained. I have dealt with people all my career and feel comfortable dealing with those from all walks of life. In addition to my academic degree in Political Science and Tourism, I have NAPA Level 1 and NVQ level 3.
Here at Brook house, we endeavour to provide a variety of activities and entertainment for those we support.
In an era of technology, we look to using ways of reaching the outside world through Zoom, Skype and voicemail. We hope our residents never feel alone and are always approachable.
Activities at our home
Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.
Life at Brook House Care Centre
Valentine’s Day, a day for our loved ones, was enjoyed by our residents with love melodies from the '50s and '60s, party games and a delicious spread laid out by our Head Chef. We decorated the home with hearts and ribbons of different sizes.
Chinese New Year
We celebrated Chinese New Year with much fun and frivolity and hope that the year of the ox is very much our year. We delighted the residents with games and threw in a birthday party too.
Indian Independence Day
India celebrates their independence Day on 26th January, and we we joined them with a splash of Indian colour music and Indian snacks. We sang the Indian national anthem and waved the colourful flags.
The Vaccine Arrives at Brook House
Our home was fortunate enough to receive the COVID-19 vaccinations earlier this month, and have had all our residents vaccinated, much to our relief. Our staff are currently being vaccinated too.
Residents enjoying Christmas Day and received wonderful gifts from our very own Santa. We had a lovely Christmas lunch and plenty of party games and, of course, we listed to the Queen's speech. The home was ablaze with decorations, lights and Christmas carols drifted throughout.
Residents enjoyed making their own Christmas trees and decorations. They also enjoyed baking mince pies and iced buns and cakes.
