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!

Resident Supervisor

Elizabeth, who is a resident on our Memory Lane community, enjoyed a cup of tea and a biscuit whilst supervising the steering of the boat. This was a reminiscence activity for Elizabeth, as her and her husband used to have a boat on the Thames, where they made plenty of loving memories.

August Open Day

On Saturday 11th August, friends young and old came together to celebrate Cherry Blossom Manor's open day.

Residents, visitors and staff all enjoyed the seaside-themed event, where they were able to walk on the home’s very own man-made temporary sandy beach, which was placed in the home's surrounding courtyard. Guests enjoyed dipping their feet in the pool of salt water while listening to the sounds of waves and seagulls, and were able to enjoy a selection of seaside refreshments, including ice cream, doughnuts and fish and chips, which were provided by the hospitality team. The day was rounded off with entertainment from local singer, Ginger, who got everyone singing and dancing with a selection of summer-themed songs.

A great day was had by all!
