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.

Teddy Bear Picnic

Chacombe Primary School joined our residents for a Teddy bear picnic afternoon. Residents managed to build wonderful relationships with the children. They enjoyed a picnic lunch out in the the garden, followed by a bear hunt on the lawn. One of the residents, Robert, shared the story of his 80 years old teddy bear, which also joined them on the day.

The Magic Table

We are delighted to announce that we have just had a Magic Table installed, which is an interactive light projector, designed to support residents living with dementia by keeping them engaged through specialised games.

The light projections respond to hand and arm movement, allowing residents to stay stimulated and, most of all, have fun!
