Meet our Activities Coordinator, Michelle Jones

Hello, my name is Michelle, and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Hagley Place. I believe that residents should be able to enjoy fun and rewarding activities everyday with amazing events to look forward to throughout the year!

The activities we offer at Hagley Place are focused around residents' likes and preferences - and you can be assured that there is something for everyone!

Activities at Hagley Place

Activities plays a big part in the care we deliver to residents; 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 possible, 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. So, why not come and sample some of our delights at our lunch club on the last Wednesday of every month with a meal and some entertainment?

Knitting for Arthritis

Our knit and natter sessions here at Hagley Place are proving to be very popular, not just for the chat and the laugh, but for helping those with arthritis as well. Knitting is a gentle and effective exercise for those living with arthritis and it also helps to give some people more mobility in the hands. 

Our knit and natter sessions run every Monday and Thursday mornings and everyone is welcome!

Musical Magic

Residents at Hagley Place were taken on a nostalgia trip through the decades with Rachel Hyde, who came in to entertain us. She sang old folk songs from Ireland and tunes from Elvis and everyone had a great time, including the staff!

Pool Party

Residents at Hagley place cooled off with a pool party. There were lots of games to participate in and a delicious fruit platter. Even the staff had fun splashing around in the paddling pool!

Community Engagement

Emergency services personnel often visited Hagley Place for refreshments whenever they are on break, and a local police officer can be seen above in our themed foyer, which we decorated for the royal wedding.

The Feeding of the Lambs

Hagley Place was full of joys when we had two bottle feeding lambs come to visit! Residents and staff alike fell in love with them and they even had little leads on so they could be taken for a walk! They went around the rooms to visit with less mobile residents and everyone remarked how wonderful and amazing it was to see real life lambs in a care home, with many residents reminiscing about their childhood on the farm.

PAT Dog Visits

We will be joined by a pet therapy dog on a fortnightly basis. It loves to come and sit with residents and be stroked. The visits are especially beneficial for calming and relaxing those we support – and everyone loved dogs!
