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.

Pet Therapy

We have been without a PAT dog for a long time, so it was a great delight to be visited by Nancy, who will be joining us on a fortnightly basis.

Cake Sale

What a fabulous spread! We held a cake sale in aid of Barchester's Charitable Foundation with an aim to raise £100. We reached our target and raised £100.35. We were joined by friends, family, and the community, who helped us with this goal.

Armed Forces Day

In our local town, there was a parade to celebrate Armed Forces Day – a few of us went along and joined the celebrations, sharing and reminiscing about past experiences with the Armed Forces. We were even lucky enough to see the spitfire do a flyby over the town.

Fun in the Sun

We can’t complain about the glorious weather, as we have been out in the garden enjoy ice cream. We love the sunshine!

Teddy Bear's Picnic

Residents enjoyed a teddy bear's picnic with the pupils of Chacombe Primary School.  It was a great opportunity for the residents and children to mix among each other.

The weather picked up, so off on our teddy bear hunt around the grounds of Chacombe we went, with the children teaming up with residents to help search for all the hidden bears.

This was a fabulous afternoon of intergenerational mixing, leaving us all exhausted when the children departed back to school.

Fashion Frenzy

We recently opened our own mini clothes shop, where residents could pop along, try on clothes, and keep them if they liked. This was a lovely afternoon of fun and lots of residents left happy with some new items for their wardrobe.
