Meet our Activities Coordinator, Gosia Maliga

I have been in the care sector since 2008, and I also have a degree in teaching. I am here to arrange and run a varied range of activities for our residents to take part in, keep them entertained and enrich their lives. From flower arranging, quizzes, arts and crafts to movies in the cinema, I try to make sure there is something for everyone here to take part in, and tailor events to suit each resident.  

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.

Activities and Events Partnerships

As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

Life at Cumberland Grange Care Home

A spot of retail therapy

A few weeks ago one morning when the sun was shining, we hopped onto the mini bus and took a trip into Exeter City Centre to have a browse, a mooch and a nice coffee from Chandos Deli. It was just lovely!

GARDENING CLUB

Last week, before the hot weather made an appearance, some of our lovely ladies got together and planted a variety of different flowers, fruits and vegetables in our four raised planters. 

Our chefs will use the veggies and fruit that we grow so that we can really enjoy our homegrown goodness.

Wondering what life is like at Cumberland Grange? 

We asked some of our residents what they love about living here. So here are their words.

 

Cumberland Grange is a real happy home, which is full of love and laughter. 

 

New residents are welcomed with open arms.

FLOWER PROJECT

The sun is shining and the flowers are blooming! So we decided to make a flower wall with thanks to Merle who came in to lead the activity for our residents. 

 

We got the sewing kit out and showed off our skills. Some of us have fantastic modelling skills too as you can see.

 

A happy, colourful, crafty afternoon!

BEACH TRIPS

Well, this weather is absolutely GLORIOUS. You do not have to ask us twice if we want to go to the beach and get an ice cream, that’s for sure! 

 

Making the most of the sunshine and soaking up the vitamin D with good friends.

Happy Monday everyone!

We’re out and about on the mini bus this afternoon, enjoying the fresh air and great company. 

 

Hope you’re all having a lovely day!
