Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sharon Rickman
Hi, my name is Sharon, and I'm part of the activities team here at Corrina Lodge and have worked here for over 20 years. I thoroughly enjoy my job and have achieved an NVQ Level 3 in Activities whilst working here. During my time here, I have met some truly amazing people and I feel privileged to work in a home with such a sense of community.
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.
Life at Corrina Lodge Care Home
Residents and Staff receive Covid 19 Vaccination
Residents and Staff were delighted to receive their first dose of the Corona virus vaccine, without leaving the home the local surgery led the vaccinations. Dumitru General Manager said. " The surgery were great they put everyone at ease and made them feel really comfortable we are so grateful for their support"
Celebrating Chinese New Year
This year we celebrated Chinese new year by decorated the whole home had a delicious traditional feast of dishes all prepared and served by the chef. We gave out treats of fortune cookies and some even used chop sticks for the first time too. After lunch we watched videos of traditional lion and dragon dances and spoke about the culture.
Even thought the hairdresser is unable to visit currently we make sure that everyone gets pampered. Our team always step up and lend a hand. These ladies felt super glamorous after their treat in the hairdressers chair.
Special Birthday Celebrations
We make sure every birthday is special and milestones even more so. This lovely lady celebrated her day with a beautiful cake, photos of family and of course a glass of fizz.
Flower arranging Masterclass
We all love the smell of beautiful fresh flowers throughout the home. Every other week our residents enjoy nothing more than collecting, arranging and then displaying some stunning bouquets for everyone to enjoy.
Dumitru the General Manager always makes time to spend with our residents. Whether its for a chat, coffee, slice of homemade cake, or a good old game of scrabble.
