Meet our Activities Coordinator, Nina Mullerworth
I have had the privilege of working at Hempton Field in my role for many years and I am looking forward to many more! I have enjoyed various training courses, including a Level 2 NAPA and Aromatherapy Massage.
My role involves interacting with residents and organising a varied programme of activities with a person-centred approach, including hobbies, life experiences and keeping active through daily exercises and music.
We are involved with lots of local clubs and members of the community, outings in the minibus are always very popular.
Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies
Life at Hempton Field Care Home
Did you know that playing Scrabble boosts the immune system and makes you happy?
Our residents certainly believe this to be true. Not only do our teams enjoy the social element, they end up learning more, and the greatest benefit of all is that ‘playing Scrabble with friends is fun’!
Flower Arranging for all the Senses
Our wonderful ladies had a fabulous time flower arranging together yesterday. Handling the various florals is a full sensory experience that fills your mind with fragrance and happy memories, all of which help relieve anxiety.
The group really immersed themselves in the process; selecting by colour, shape and texture to create truly beautiful displays. Thank you ladies, our communal areas look and smell amazing!
Eyes down for Bingo!
Eyes down ladies and gentlemen for an afternoon of musical bingo! It's always a pleasure to see our residents having such a giggle and sing-along playing this group game.
Tai Chi by AGE UK
Our residents love to try something new, yesterday they enjoyed Tai Chi by Generation Games c/o a DVD supplied by our friends at Age UK Oxfordshire. We all found the short 15 minute easy to follow routine really enjoyable, with its soft flow movements to exercise the whole body and improve balance.
Yummy Candy Floss
Candy Floss - Tastes like 'all the fun of the fair' with every bite. Our ladies loved the homemade treats and the smell throughout the home was simply scrummy, it took everyone back to their childhoods, we had a lovely time reminiscing.
Beach Party and BBQ
This week’s Hempton Field Beach party was in full swing from first thing, until early evening. Our residents enjoyed cocktail mixing (mocktails for the staff) real for residents and guests.
Mabel couldn't wait to get behind the Tiki Bar and shake her stuff!
We were joined by many special friends from the local community who have been a huge support throughout the various lockdowns, having them in the home rather than seeing them over zoom was such a pleasure. Being able to say a big THANK YOU to them personally and having them over to enjoy the beach themed event and BBQ in some way completed the Hempton family.
We had an amazing day that took our residents right back to summer holidays by the sea. We were all also treated to a number of live performances from Troubadour Productions; Emma and Tom who made the party come alive with their Then of the Pier Show and Yellow Coat sketch which made us all feel like Hi-Di-Hi campers!
Later life living really is fun at Hempton Field, if you’d like to know more about our life enrichment program, have a show round and meet the team please give our home manager; Sharon a call on 01844 351766
