Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Rachel, Lindsey and Michelle

As a team, we are very passionate about improving the quality of life for the residents that live here at Collingtree Park.

We have relaunched the 'Life Histories' project, which has been a huge success, and we have been awarded a Best Practice recommendation for our work. Life Histories has helped us learn more about the individual residents we care for and this not only aids us with the improvement of our person-centred care, but is a great way to reminisce on a one-to-one level.

In 2018, we opened our ‘Village Life’ room on Memory Lane, which was featured in the local newspaper. We also launched our Memory Café, which is hosted in our Village Life room on the first Thursday of every month.

We have many upcoming projects at Collingtree Park and can't wait to share them with you!

Activities at Collingtree Park

Our specialist activities staff 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. 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.

June Open Day

Everyone joined in singing with the live band during our June open day. Residents played instruments and sang along to well-known songs from the '60s and '70s.

We're Blue

During our recent Gardening Club, we decided to give our summer house a ‘face lift’ to go with our new seaside corner of the garden. We will be having a re-opening ceremony on June 27th, so please come along and see the residents' hard work!

'70s Day

We all got our boogie on at the home during our '70s disco. We danced the afternoon away to live '70s music by a resident favourite, Natasha!

Gardening Club

During our most recent Gardening Club, our keen gardeners potted different herb, including parsley, basil and chives. Residents have been checking the herbs' progress each day.
