Meet our Activities Coordinator, Angie McAuliffe
Hi my name is Angie I’m the activities Coordinator at Hagley Place. I have been here since October 2019, my role is to organise and provide activities for our residents and help to maintain their wellbeing.
I have many years’ experience in different roles within the care sector and I am able to develop excellent relationships with residents and their families! I am very passionate about the quality of activities which are provided to residents, and will work closely with the staff team to ensure these activities are appropriate and resident focused.
I will work hard to support the rest of our team to provide the highest quality of care possible.
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.
Life at Hagley Place Care Home
Resident, Di, is an accomplished artist, so we held an exhibition of her own personal art collection, and it was amazing! Di loves our weekly art class, and said it feels fantastic to be able to retain her life skills here at Hagley Place.
We Love Baking
Audrey and Anne really loved making our orange drizzle cake. Making cakes is so therapeutic; it takes our ladies back to what they used to love doing, and they taste good too!
Minibus Trips Are Back
What a joy to get out and about; we took 4 residents to Clee Hill for delicious fish and chips.
We Have Entertainment Back!
Residents and staff were in for an amazing treat as we had our loyal entertaining singer back with us on the 21st April to celebrate our Queen's birthday!
Residents suggested we have some tasty donuts for afternoon tea, so we did it, and they absolutely loved them. Sometimes the simple things make you smile and lick your lips.
Our lovely carers have been very busy enjoying dominoes with our residents. We used large dominoes to make it accessible to all and the residents really did enjoy it, as you can see by their big smiles.
Every Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30 a.m., Michelle will trim, shape and file your nails, as well as add a coat of polish so you can feel well-dressed.
