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!

Royal Garter Day

Residents and staff packed up the minibus and headed off to Windsor Castle, as we had been lucky enough to receive invites to join the Royal Family and troops in the celebrations of the Royal Garter. The sun was shining and everyone enjoyed the scrumptious picnic that was provided by our own Head Chef.

Promoting the Home

In an effort to build links with the local community, we put up a stall at the local summer fete. The idea was to promote the home and show the local community what we are all about. The theme this year was 'Cowboys & Indians' and, with this in mind, Angie & Naomi (our activities team' donned their cowboy hates and ran a version of tin can alley with plastic cups and Nerf guns.
