Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sharon Ecclestone

Sharon has been Activities Coordinator since 2006 and is famous for her spectacular themed events. She organises and leads the activities team in providing a variety of things to do at Hilderstone Hall, and she also organises regular trips out using our minibus. She welcomes any suggestions from residents and families in relation to future activities. She also regularly hosts the monthly resident committee meetings.

Activities at Hilderstone Hall

Our activities team are, first and foremost, devoted to each and every resident in the home, and strive to ensure that their interests, hobbies, capabilities and individual requests are met to the highest standard. This could include one-to-one chats, hand massages, reading, music therapy, flower arranging, movement to music, arts & crafts, gardening and baking. We also have regular fun, adventurous and stimulating trips, where we encourage families and loved ones to join us. We have close links with the Alzheimer's Society, the local primary school, and Trinity Skills who come to sing with residents. All the staff at Hilderstone Hall participate in activities with residents, offering encouragement, stimulation and interaction for everyone involved, providing the most fulfilling experience possible.

NCS Visit

We had a wonderful surprise when a number of 16 year old boys and girls, who are part of the National Citizen Service, came to visit us. They chatted to our ladies and gentlemen about their interests and lives, and presented a box to each resident with personalised gifts inside. Everyone was very humbled and grateful for this very kind gesture!

Teddy Bear's Picnic

We had a lovely time at our teddy bear's picnic, which was set in our beautiful grounds. The sun was shining, the children were playing and the bears even behaved themselves – and we had great fun with the quiz and hunt. We had plenty of cake and juice and thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Return to Amerton

We had another lovely trip out to Amerton Farm, where we got to enjoy tea and cake before looking around the craft centre and viewing the animals. One of our Carers also came with her little girl, Sienna, much to the pleasure residents.
