Meet our Activities Coordinator, Kelly Bradbury
I started working at Claremont Parkway in 2013, in my first care job, as a carer. In 2015, I was encouraged to go on a 'Train the Trainer' course, to train as the In House Trainer, which I am so glad I did, as it helped develop my skills and build my confidence.
I started as an Activities Coordinator in November 2020. I love getting the residents involved in crafts, baking and making sure their needs are met.
Here at Claremont Parkway, we believe that activities are an important part of our residents day. The activities team look forward to bringing our resident new and exciting and activities.
Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience, and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
Life at Claremont Parkway Care Home
St Patrick's Day
Residents here at Claremont Parkway had a lovely afternoon celebrating all things Irish.
We had Irish Bingo, Irish trivia and an Irish quiz. We also enjoyed Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance in the background and drank some Guinness.
Everyone had a very lovely afternoon.
The lovely ladies here at Claremont Parkway enjoyed a lovely Mother’s Day. We had lots of beautiful flowers and gifts brought in from the families. Everyone enjoyed a delicious roast chicken dinner and had a lovely day.
We even had a lovely surprise from Jeanette, one of our residents' daughters. She had very kindly made lots of little bunches of flowers for all the Mothers in the home which all the ladies thought were so pretty and kind.
We had a fun afternoon here at Claremont Parkway. We had a treasure hunt and watched a Treasure Island Pantomime, which the residents loved. Everyone had such a fun afternoon!
Celebrating the Oscars
We enjoyed Hollywood stars bingo and an ultimate movie quiz and, of course with popcorn. The residents loved the afternoon, talking about their favourite movie stars and looking back at the movies they love.
Silk Clay Modelling
We tried something new today here at Claremont Parkway: some silk clay modelling.
Residents loved the foamy texture of the clay and enjoyed modelling different creations. The care team were also intrigued by the activity and join in to support the residents.
We love the whole home approach here at Claremont.
Year of the Ox
To celebrate the Year of the Ox here at Claremont Parkway, the residents enjoyed watching a lion dance, as well as learning to say hello, thank you and goodbye in Chinese.
The residents really enjoyed learning Chinese; one of our new ladies was brilliant at it. After speaking to her husband, it turned out that she had spent some time in China.
