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.
Life at Chater Lodge Care Home
Nanny's Hamper brings treats for Ketton villagers
We are delighted to welcome Dougy from Nanny’s Hamper who brings his van to Chater Lodge at midday on Tuesdays and Thursdays, serving the local community with cakes, biscuits and other treats. Our residents and staff love to pop out for something tasty too. We are pleased to see our car park providing a helpful service to Ketton villagers.
Ice creams all round
Chater Lodge residents love it when Gino brings his ice cream van to our home. He is becoming a regular visitor and local people are welcome to treat themselves, too, while he is at our home. Would you like sprinkles on that?
A new family in the garden
We love doing a bit of bird spotting in our accessible garden here at Chater Lodge, and a new little family has taken up residence in our shrubbery. We are waiting to find out exactly what they are.
Village Hero collects his prize
At Chater Lodge we are definitely part of Ketton village life and we wanted to acknowledge the people that make the village such a special community. So, Chater Lodge has set up a monthly Village Hero award and our first winner was Jamie Betts, Landlord of The Railway Inn. Jamie jumped on his bike during lockdown to deliver beer and make sure people were ok. He visited Chater Lodge recently to meet staff and residents, and collect his Village Hero prize of a signed shirt and football kindly donated by The Posh, Peterborough United Football Club. His prizes are now on display at the Railway Inn.
Games in the garden
George and Peter have been enjoying the sunshine and playing board games in the garden while they catch up with each other's news.
A celebration shared with The Queen
Chater Lodge surprised some neighbours recently when staff realised they all lived next door to each other and shared the same birthday as the Queen, 21st April. Zoe and Maria from our home, delivered bouquets of flowers to Alison and Lena, and a cute cuddly toy to three-year-old Millie. Chater Lodge is connected to lots of people in Ketton and the surrounding area and we like to support the community when we can. It was lovely to treat these three ladies.
