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!

Sensory Fun

After a lot of consideration and talks with residents, staff and loved ones, it was decided that, rather than a creating a sensory room, we would purchase a mobile unit instead. This way, all residents will benefit from it. The trolley can be used for group sessions and during one-to-one time, easily being transferred from one space to another.
