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.

Easter Celebrations

During our Easter celebrations, we were joined by Lacey & Mia, the daughters of Activities Coordinator, Annabel Mitchell. They visited with their bunny ears on to deliver the Easter eggs to residents.

They stayed and chatted and talked about the meaning of Easter with John. who used to teach RE.

We had an Easter quiz and made some nests with eggs and chicks in during our arts & crafts session.

Easter Cart

Our Easter Cart has been decorated using residents' own creations from our arts & crafts sessions. We are holding an Easter bonnet competition and Head Chef, David, is going to judge them on Easter Sunday and award a prize to the lucky winner. In addition to all of our lovely residents receiving an Easter egg, card and a glass of sherry, we also made some hot cross buns.

Flowers for Roberta

Mr Terry Fountain, a member of the public, came in recently with flowers for one of our Senior Carers, Roberta Arnold.

It transpired that Roberta was in a local supermarket over the weekend when Mr Fountain’s wife, Stella, had quite a serious accident and Roberta intervened, delivering first aid until the paramedics arrived and congratulated her on a job well done.

Mr Fountain said he was thankful that Roberta was on hand to help and that she is a credit to the home.

Roberta says due to her training she did not think twice about going to Mrs Fountain’s aid.
