Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Angela MacQuillin

I have been the Activities Co-Ordinator for Cherry Blossom manor Since October 2014. Before this I worked for Local Authority for 12 years as part of a team for Behaviour Support and Child Protection. I am a Sociable person and between my family and work can be found socialising with friends or volunteering in local groups.

My role within the home is to promote independence and well being for residents, family and staff. This is done by meeting their mental, physical and social well-being including self esteem needs.

Activities at Cherry Blossom Manor

Activities at Cherry Blossom Manor are delivered using the whole home approach, where there is never a dull moment. Our Activities team take great care to make sure that our residents, resident’s families and staff’s physical, mental, and social well-being are taken into account. Whether it is a group session or a personal-centred activity you can be certain it is meeting a need.

We have our regular activities such as Scrabble Club, Bingo, Zumba, Gardening Club, Movie Time, family support meetings, Residents meetings and many more. We are also known for our theme days where the whole home likes to dress up. We have even been known in the past to go for a drive in the minibus in our costumes!

A Little Light Reading

Retired Head Teacher, Derek, took a trip down memory lane by reading to some of the children from the local primary School. The children and staff were so thrilled with Derek’s talent to read aloud that they have invited him back.

Farewell, Lucy!

Staff and residents are sad to say goodbye to Lucy, our in-house Trainer.  Lucy has played a big part in Cherry Blossom, not only rolling out the training for all staff and volunteers, but also being on hand to help in all departments when required.  

Lucy will be helping to run her family business. We wish her great satisfaction and know she will make a great success of her new role.
