Meet our Activities Coordinators, Our Activities Team
Nadine and Sarah, lead by the amazing Sue, deliver activities and social support around Hilton Park. They have been working hard through the recent months to enable garden visits with loved ones and providing social activities thorugh the home. They also spend quality, one to one time with our residents, enjoying a cup of tea and reminiscing of days gone by!
Activities at our home
Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
Life at Hilton Park Care Home
Hairdressing Is Back On The Agenda
It's been so lovely to have our hairdresser back, she has had a lot of haircuts to get through this past two weeks! Short back and sides? 1980's mullet? Blue rinse?
Here is a resident enjoying a trim, notice our resident salon pooch serenely laying under the counter, with a fabulous hair cut herself!
It's great to have our onsite Salon back open where residents have booked in for a much-needed trim and styling.
WildScience Animal Visit
We had a great time yesterday with our friends from WildScience!
WildScience came in for a very exciting, fun, educational, and wild experience. The residents absolutely loved it and we cannot wait to book another visit. Animals and nature really do bring a lot of joy to the home.
We had guinea pigs, hamsters, frogs, Oscar the snake, giant snails and a scorpion! (Which we had a look at but left in his box!).
WildSci take great care in looking after their animals, reptiles and insects and we highly recommend them.
When asked what animals residents would like to see in the home in future, our favourite answer was ‘an elephant’. Let’s see what we can do!
Mable The PAT Dog
We had a visitor this week in the form of Mable, the beautiful French Bull Dog. She visited many of our residents and the joy she brought was greatly appreciated. She put a smile on many faces and we were also able to take her to residents bedside to say 'hello' too.
Watch this space, we look to have some news soon about a brand new Barchester pooch!
Tea for Two
We had a great morning tea tasting in the atrium here at Hilton Park. The winner by far was the Indian Chai, and it was washed down with some wine and biscuits.
Afternoon in the Sun
We had an exercise class with weights, resistance bands, some stretching and Yoga, followed by badminton, ball games and bowls.
Gardening club has been fantastic! Six whole tubs were planted full of glorious bulbs and the weather was perfect too. Long may it stay this way so we can get outside as often as possible and enjoy the fresh air and scenery.
Take a break with us!
We offer a warm welcome and a free hot drink any time you need one. There might even be a cake or two available!
Join us every Friday at 10:30 a.m. for some bingo. Everyone is welcome!
