Meet our Activities Coordinator, Aurrelie Edmond

I enjoy my role as an Activities Coordinator; it's a varied position with a huge amount of job satisfaction. It is so nice to see the smiles on the faces of residents as they enjoy the activities I organise.

I have a background working with children in day nurseries, so the interaction I get from residents in the home is very different. I love trying new things and I am always happy and open to suggestions and ideas that will enhance the lives of those we support here at The Dales.

Activities at the Dales

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.

Congratulations to Pam Phillips, who was named as our Employee of the Month for June.

Pam works in hospitality as a Hostess. She always goes that extra mile to ensure that the service runs smoothly and that residents are happy with it. Pam is a bright and bubbly character and is friendly with colleagues and visitors alike. Recently we had a chef emergency in the kitchen and Pam stood in and took over with confidence and competence. She is an asset to the team.

A Touch of Glamour

Everyone likes to dress up and look nice and it was great to see our ladies doing just that. They spent time decorating their own hats to show their personalities and to make them feel glamorous and special. Some wore their own shop-bought hats and spoke of the occasions that they were bought for, which brought happy memories flooding back. We all think they look lovely and had such an enjoyable day.

Armed Forces Day

We celebrated Armed Forces Day with a lot of nostalgic memories. We chatted about everyone's experiences and involvement with the armed forces of yesteryear and today. We had a good singalong and a wonderful afternoon with cakes and buns. It was lovely to see residents' families get involved and hear the stories that everyone had to tell.

We thank the armed forces from any generation for the loyalty, bravery and dedication it takes to help keep our Queen and country safe.

World Environment Day

On Tuesday 5th June, we celebrated World Environment Day. We spent the afternoon smelling and looking at flowers and herbs to try and guess what each plant was! Residents really enjoyed the activity as we talked about the colours of the flowers and the meals we could cook using the herbs.
