Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jo Eland

My name is Jo and I'm the Activities Coordinator at Cheshire Grange and am very excited by this role.

I started working at Cheshire Grange in May 2015 on Reception before stepping into the role of Hostess and finding I loved the interaction with the residents. It is important to me to listen to the residents likes and dislikes and I plan to deliver, as far as possible, a person centred activities program that doesn't just involve the residents but will be a whole home experience. I have gained experience helping out with fundraising and event organising for a local Junior Rugby Club, the skills picked up here have been invaluable and will translate to my new role, organisation and planning being key as well as adaptability. 

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading and am passionate about getting out and about and playing with my camera and if the body was more willing I would love to get out on my mountain bike.

Activities at Cheshire Grange

The activities team are constantly striving to meet the varied needs of everyone who lives in our home, offering a wide range of group and individual social events. There are regular visits from entertainers, along with craft activities, baking, games & puzzle days and pampering sessions, which fill the week. However, we can always find time for outings and just spending that little bit of special time with residents who enjoy the peace and quiet. We aim to bring the activities to the individual, whilst making it a whole home experience.

Love Is in the Air

What better way is there to celebrate Valentine's Day than with flowers, chocolates and a glass of Buck's Fizz whilst being serenaded by Richard Millington as he tinkled the ivories? Residents got into the spirit and were soon swaying in time to the music and humming along to well-known favourites.

National Puzzle Week

In recognition of National Puzzle Week, residents had a very enjoyable week playing word games, doing crosswords, taking part in quizzes and completing several jigsaw puzzles, some of which nearly got the better of us!

Owl Visit

Our ladies and gents were enthralled by a visit from Spike the barn owl, who appeared to be enjoying all the attention. We learnt all about Spike and other owls: where they live, what they eat, how they hunt and many other interesting facts. Spike then visited residents in their rooms, making sure nobody missed out.
