Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lisa May
I started working for Barchester in October 2020. The team here at Hampton Grove have made me feel welcome. No day is ever the same here.
My varied daily activities and events help to create a stimulating engagement programme to enhance the quality of life for each resident within the home.
Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!
Life at Hampton Grove Care Home
Messing with Tie-Dye Inks
This morning we got messy and tie dyed our own bags with the residents. We had loads of fun decorating the bags with ink. Then we also had a go with tie dyeing a big sheet to see if we could make patterns on it. Tomorrow we will wash them and let the residents see all their work.
Hampton Grove Summer Fete
What a day for a Summer Fete! The rain held off and we had a fun packed day.
We would like to say a massive Thank You to all the staff, volunteers and guests that made yesterday’s event so amazing. Everybody worked incredibly hard and brought so much joy to the home. Our residents enjoyed every moment and it was lovely to see so many join us from the local community. From face painting to ball games, bubbles and music, it was a great day.
Visitors were treated to a request show disco of tunes courtesy of DJ Mick Flood and a live performance from upcoming young singing star; Thea Watson (Maddison Skies) who delighted us with some old-time classics for our residents and guests to singalong and dance too.
Our fundraisers, including raffle and 'name the clown' raised £300.70 towards the resident’s sensory room build. Thank you to everyone who joined in, we're really looking forward to the next event.
Chats and Cooling Watermelon
The weather was so lovely yesterday we took afternoon tea in the garden. With refreshing watermelon to cool our residents as they chatted together in the sun.
Our residents of all abilities love using the aqua painting kits to create some colourful beach and garden pictures. It's truly magical seeing the images come alive with the slightest brush of water.
Relaxing at Local Lake
The weather has been amazing recently so we went out with some residents to enjoy the sun. We went for a lovely walk around our local lake and took some time to sit and enjoy the scenery. The home is so well situated to enjoy the fabulous countryside on our doorstep.
Home Grown Vegtables Delight
Over the past couple of months the residents have been helping to grow different vegetables in our garden. Last week the green beans were finally ready to enjoy. The residents helped to pick them and then enjoyed a tasty meal with their home grown vegetables.
