Meet our Activities Coordinator, Maria Martinez-Sanchez
Maria joined Cheverton Lodge in September 2016. She is a special lady who is a real resident advocate. She organizes meaningful activities daily for those we support. She always goes the extra mile and is a good organiser who brings international experience to us.
Activities at Cheverton Lodge
Our Activities Coordinators are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians, as well as art therapy, flower arranging, Exercise to music and quizzes. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as they can, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join in with activities and events as often as they can.
Life at Cheverton Lodge Care Home
Cheese & Wine
Every week, we hold a social event where residents can gather together to socialise. Last week we had a cheese & wine tasting evening, where residents tasted different types of cheese and washed them down with some delicious wine. Cheers!
Rock 'n' Roll Afternoon
The rock 'n' roll-themed day saw residents and staff dance to the likes of 'Jail House Rock' and 'A Little Less Conversation', accompanied with a buffet of sandwiches and Elvis cupcakes.
Residents and staff gave Daniela and Anda—mums to be—a wonderful pink themed surprise baby shower. Residents enjoyed an afternoon of gift giving, tea and cake. We all wish them all the best and very much look forward to meeting their baby girls!
National Dog Day
To celebrate the day, residents enjoyed visits from their favourite dogs during the day. While Muffin chose Joan’s lap, Tino preferred playing with a ball and a lovely afternoon tea in the garden with Marcela and Jane.
Representing Our Residents
Congratulations to our new resident ambassador, Helen, who received her official badge from General Manager, Earl.
Helen’s role as a Resident Ambassador means she will now support and be an active voice on the views of other residents and relatives within the home.
We regularly host pamper days for our residents at Cheverton Lodge. It is always a popular afternoon activity.
This time the ladies enjoyed foot spas, facials and hair styling whilst listening to some classical music and one of their favourite opera singers, Benjamin Gigli!
