Meet our Activities Coordinator, Hannah Boscott

I have worked here at Chacombe Park Care Home since 2013; I started at Chacombe as a care assistant followed by becoming a senior carer before taking on the role as Activities Co-coordinator. I love being part of the fun and entertainment that we have here at Chacombe. I strive to ensure all residents we support are involved with everyday life at Chacombe one way or another by organising group and individual activities.

We have a varied activity programme that is never fixed and if residents are wishing to do an alternative activity this is never an issue. There are regular entertainers, PAT dog, themed events/days such as beach days, cultural days as well as celebrating the big calendar events such as Guy Fawkes. We also have regular trips out on the Mini Bus, which include visiting places of interest, lunch trips/afternoon tea. Relatives, friends and family are encouraged to join the activities that we have going on around the home as often as they can.

Activities at our home

We understand that the people we support have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events are organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.

Natural History Museum

We enjoyed a cultural day out to the Oxford Natural History Museum. It was a lot of fun looking back through time and a very enjoyable day out.

Bowling for Chacombe

We went bowling one afternoon at our local bowling alley. The competition was on from the outset and the ladies and gentlemen were all ready to give it their best shot. There were a few foul shots, plenty of spares, some great strikes and lots of fun!

Curling at Chacombe

In keeping with the Winter Olympics theme, we got out our curling set and had some friendly competition. Everyone was trying their best to be the closest to the middle and be the overall winner.

Pancake Day

Wild Bill joined us for the afternoon on Shrove Tuesday. We had a singalong, a dance and, of course, lots of pancakes!

A Return to the Butterfly Farm

We visited Stratford-upon-Avon’s butterfly farm recently and it was great to be in with the butterflies; they flew around our heads and even occasionally landed on us. There was also an interesting ant trail set up, which we all found fascinating.

The Monte Carlo Rally

The Monte Carlo Rally came to Banbury for the first time since 1962, so a group of us went into the town centre to support the event and enjoy the sights and sounds of the classic cars. Although it was a very cold morning, it was great fun to take part in this event and be able to look at all the classic cars that came to town.
