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
It was lovely to receive these flowers from students with loving messages encouraging residents to stay cheerful and happy!
Thank you City of London Academy!
Ice Cream Bonanza
Residents got the best of a sunny afternoon in the garden, singing along to well-known old favourites and enjoying an ice cream bonanza full of flavour and colour.
Cream Tea Day
Finally putting an end to the controversial debate of cream before jam for the Cornish tradition or jam before cream as part of the Devonshire tradition, Cheverton Lodge enjoyed homemade scones both ways with a variety of herbal and classic teas.
Residents also enjoyed a selection of sweet and savoury treats, including cucumber, salmon and mayo egg sandwiches and a delicious sherry wine while playing a tea quiz!
The weather has been beautiful over the last couple of weeks, so residents were busy doing some DIY in the garden, as well as watering plants and helping to look after our very own veggies and fruits crops!
A Royal Celebration
To celebrate Her Majesty's birthday weekend at Cheverton Lodge, residents enjoyed watching the Trooping of the Colour in the morning and then got ready for the afternoon tea party, giving the finishing touches for this special day! We enjoyed doing arts and crafts during the week to decorate the delicious cupcakes the chef baked for us. Party time!
Getting the best from the spring weather; residents enjoyed playing musical bingo and singing along in the garden.
