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?

Nutrition & Hydration Week

Residents and families had a lovely afternoon tea as part of Nutrition & Hydration Week here at Hagley Place. There was a selection of delicious cakes, sandwiches and pastries to enjoy, along with samples of smoothies for both residents and families to indulge in. Residents and guests both thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed event and have called for more of these afternoon teas!

Dog Show

Canines and mayhem ruled during our dog show. Big, small, scruffy and smooth dogs came along to Hagley Place for this special event, and entered into a variety of categories, from 'Waggiest Tail' to 'Wettest Nose! The lovely people from Pets at Home donated both prizes and time to judge the competition. The residents had a lovely time with all of the dogs and have even asked that there be another show held during our Summer Fayre!

St David's Day

Hagley Place residents celebrated the national day of all things Welsh this year with Welsh songs and hymns from Rachel Hyde. The party was a roaring success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it; Welsh residents even sang the Welsh National Anthem to the delight of everyone there.
