Meet our Activities Coordinator, Angela MacQuillin
I have been the Lifestyle Manager for Cherry Blossom manor Since October 2014. Before this I worked for the 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, I can be found hanging out with friends or volunteering in local groups.
My role within the home involves promoting independence and well-being for residents, family and staff. This is done by meeting their mental, physical and social 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!
Life at Cherry Blossom Manor Care Home
Resident, Mandy, loves nothing more than beating staff at cards. Playing cards is a nice, quiet and gentle activity that keeps the mind and upper body healthy.
Chinese New Year
Residents at Cherry Blossom Manor get crafty in preparation for Chinese New Year, when we will enjoy a Chinese meal and some fortune cookies.
International Flower Day
Residents enjoyed arranging some fresh flower for their rooms in recognition of International Flower Day.
Some residents practised playing 'Happy Birthday' on our hand bells.
Celebrating 10 Years
We celebrated Cherry Blossom Manor's 10th anniversary with pizza, cake and a firework display.
Our Home Receives Vaccination
Staff and residents at Southgate Beaumont were delighted to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, which has lifted everyone’s spirits after what has been a very challenging year for everyone.
We’ve had a year like no other and the vaccine feels like the light at the end of the tunnel. Our teams have been magnificent in how they have risen to every challenge during this pandemic and we are proud to play our part in this next phase to ensure the most vulnerable are protected.
Don't Dine Alone
We are inviting local elderly people to join us for fish and chips on Fridays. Meal times are between 12:30 and 13:30.
