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.
Life at Hempton Field Care Home
Our New Visiting Pod
We have just opened our new comfortable and COVID-secure visiting suite and are looking forward to welcoming loved ones back into our home.
A Hempton Halloween
Our residents and staff enjoyed a fantastic party for Halloween! We made lots of Halloween crafts, and our own masks for our party!
The fantastic kitchen team enjoyed creating lots of fun party food, which was enjoyed by all with lots of giggles! We also enjoyed pumpkin carving, a Halloween quiz and games, followed by a fun, energetic afternoon with the sweetie filled piñata. Everyone had a go!
Hempton Field Scarecrow
Here is a picture of our 7 foot scarecrow that is going in the village this weekend for the scarecrow trail. He has caused lots of laughs, and residents have even named him Henry! They said they are sad to see him go, but hopefully he doesn’t get too blown and we can think about another outfit for him!. We have had lots of ideas!
BNF Healthy Eating Week
Our fantastic kitchen staff are enjoying taking on the challenge of BNF Healthy Eating Week. Our residents here at Hempton Field have enjoyed some lovely food reflecting the theme.
We have enjoyed wholegrain crackers, homemade pies made with wholemeal pastry, and healthy, fruity desserts.
At Hempton, we especially love the homemade soups served with a hot buttered homemade wholemeal roll, and a whole-wheat pasta dish! We are looking forward to tomorrow’s challenge!
Residents and staff at Hempton Field have been busy putting our Harvest Festival display together, with lots of painting, collage work, gluing and, of course, a variety of salt dough crafts!
The cook at Hempton field, Heather Coombes, enjoyed making a fantastic courgette, cheese and sundried tomato bread covered in seeds, whilst our lovely residents made a bread pudding, which brought back lots of fun memories!
We had a lovely lady in the village that made a variety of chutneys and jams for us. We are lucky to have a local flower farm nearby, where we purchased some flowers, and vegetables from our local farm shop.
At Hempton Field, residents and staff enjoyed a fun-themed carnival day with our daily exercises to steel band music, followed by a lovely lunch of Caribbean chicken, coconut rice and peas, mango and orange summer salad, sweet potato chips with baked banana with rum and cream, all washed down with a tasty rum cocktail.
