Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Mel Birrell

I joined Cherry Trees in 2018 with lots of enthusiasm and new ideas about how we can provide great activities for residents. Our aim is to ensure that the activities we provide bring enrichment resident' lives and help them feel that we are a big family. We also like to go further afield, such as to the seaside, pantomimes and on cinema trips. 

Activities at Cherry Trees

Our activities team are constantly striving to mentally and physically stimulate those we support by organising group and individual social events for anyone and everyone to participate in. There are regular outings in the minibus to nearby places of interest, including the local theatre, as well as visits from PAT dogs, musicians and entertainers. We also host pizza & quiz afternoons that we encourage relatives to come to. Activities are one of the most important aspects of a care home, so it is essential that our team are dedicated to ensuring that residents are entertained, and that life at Cherry Trees is fun and active.

Life at our home

Getting Crafty

Residents asked to have an arts & crafts morning, so we decided to get 'crafty' with pebbles, which are now displayed in the courtyard. A simple idea, yet so effective in bringing even more colour into our garden area.

Open Day

We hosted another open day recently; it was a lovely afternoon and we had craft stalls and a car boot sale. Residents, loved ones, staff and members of the local community all had a great time.

We had a lovely afternoon at the local care boot sale in the glorious sunshine. Residents loved the afternoon and finding a bargain.

Sensory Table

We had a fun day trying out a sensory table.  It was interactive, and we all had a go painting with a brush, and completing the games.

Summer Fête

We had a lot of fun at our Summer Fête. We had a body shop stall, a tombola, hook-a-duck, a bouncy castle and face paint. We also had yummy hot dogs on the go and some cakes and brownies for after. We had the delightful music of Johnny Tarino in the afternoon, which was much-enjoyed by the residents, family and staff. We managed to raise over £100 to go towards activities resources, so it was a very successful day.
