Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sarah Miles
I have worked in the care sector for many years. I have enjoyed my role as a carer, and I am grateful for this opportunity to develop my skills as part of the activities team. I love spending time with residents and making a difference to their lives.
Activities at Chorleywood Beaumont
Our Activities Coordinators are constantly striving to mentally and physically stimulate those we support by organising group and individual activities for anyone and everyone to participate in. There are regular weekly outings in the minibus to nearby places of interest including the local theatre and Cathedral's as well as visits from PAT dogs, visiting zoos, musicians and entertainers. We also host evenings such as our Pizza & Quiz Night 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 Chorleywood Beaumont Care Community is fun and active.
Life at our home
Celebrating Carers Week
Chorleywood Beaumont had a day of celebrations and gifts to thank care staff at the home, who make a real difference to the lives of those in their care. Staff members were provided with a selection of chocolatey treats and were honoured by the residents, who thoughtfully added wishes on artificial leaves on a caring tree for staff members. All carer go above and beyond their roles when delivering care. Additionally, Harold, a resident and ambassador at the home presented the caring teams with certificates.
International Nurses Day
We celebrated International Nurses Day, and resident, Desmond, did a speech and presented all our nurses with a certificate in recognition of their hard work.
Patrick McNicholas, the home’s Gardner, and Mrs Hicks, a resident of the home’s assistant living apartments, gathered some residents around the home (as the weather wasn’t great for outdoor gardening) and decided to get their hands dirty by using old chested draws to plant some flowers.

A huge thank you to all the staff at Flower Land Garden Centre who helped us have a wonderful day out. Flower Land has a huge selection of products, including clothing, homeware, arts and crafts, local foods, candles & bath bombs, and even beautiful fish to look at! We all had a fantastic day out shopping and ended a perfect afternoon with some scrumptious tea & cake!
Breakfast with the Rangers
As a way of saying thank you for all their hard work in the community, we invited our local Chorleywood Rangers to come and have a full English breakfast free of charge before they went out to work.
The Chorleywood Rangers maintain the beautiful cricket grounds, common, cemetery and allotments, along with hosting several other events, such as volunteer days.
We had a lovely morning and it’s the least we could do.
