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.

Children in Need

We had a great day celebrating Children in Need, making shortbread bears and Victoria sponge cakes, and having a competition for the most wild hair style, all for a good cause.

Stroke Society

When a couple of visitors of one of our respite gentlemen asked us for ideas for their Stroke Society, we took it upon ourselves to go along and see what help we could be to them. It was lovely to see so many people volunteering their own time to such a worthy cause.

We played pass the parcel and also took part in the armchair exercise session. We also hosted an open house and were thrilled to meet all the people who came along for the occasion.

We hosted a raffle and donated half the money to the group to purchase a couple of board games that they thought would be useful to the individuals they care for.

Halloween Party

Residents and staff had a spooktacular day when we celebrated Halloween with a party. Staff, friends, famil  and even Bella, our mascot, got dressed up to join in with the games and enjoy a wonderful lunch, followed by the residents judging and giving out prizes for the best costume and pumpkin designs. We are already thinking of ideas for next year.

Remembrance Day Preparations

We took it upon ourselves to add our own personal touch to our reception area as a great mark of respect for all those who fought in the World War One and it is with them in mind we stand proud with our poppies and bow our heads to remember each and every one of them and pray we never forget what they did for us all.
