Meet our Activities Coordinator, Melanie Stubbs

Hello, my name is  Mel and I am one of the Activities Coordinators here at Corrina Lodge. I have been here for over 5 years and can honestly say that I love my role. 

I have met some truly amazing residents and some wonderful families. I delight in facilitating interesting and relevant group activities and events, but also spending one-to-one time with residents, simply listening, talking, or even pampering. 

Corrina Lodge has a brilliant sense of a community, and I particularly pride myself on making sure that residents, friends and their families feel welcome here when visiting. 

I look froward to meeting you.

Activities at our home

We understand that the people we support have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events are organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.

A Blast from the Past

Residents had a blast from the past at Milestones Museum in Basingstoke. They all enjoyed reflecting in a living history museum, participating in a good ol' fashioned singalong in a pub and buying sweeties for one old penny. We had great fun using all the old amusement machines.

Eyes on the Prize

Residents at Corrina had a lovely afternoon when students from a local school joined them for a prize giving-ceremony. The students artwork was displayed in the home and residents then had the opportunity to vote for their favourite. The children were then invited to receive certificates and prizes to acknowledge their amazing work. We will be enjoying the children’s company again for a Christmas Carol Concert in December.

A Trip Back in Time

Entertainers, George and Ginger, treated residents and visitors at Corrina Lodge to a good old fashioned war time sing along. George and Ginger sang a selection of songs that got everyone singing along and tapping their toes. The afternoon was lovely and a great time was had by all! They will be back again in December with their Christmas show.

Ready. Set. Sail!

Residents enjoyed a ride in a specially adapted but that took them all on a leisurely cruise down the Thames. We had a full day out, which include a riverside picnic in Windsor. As we sailed past the Castle, we gave Her Majesty a royal wave – let's hope she was looking out of the window!
