Meet our Activities Coordinator, Vivien Miklos
Hello, my name is Vivien Miklos and I joined the home in 2020. I enjoy the varied aspects of the role and watching the reactions of the resident when they engage in activities
Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!
Life at Hyacinth House Care Home
Celebrating harvest in a traditional way!
Residents and staff enjoyed an afternoon of making fresh bread for harvest. The smiles on their faces and the laughing said it all, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and following on once the bread was baked and looking delicious residents decided to make their own sandwiches for tea!
Tending to the Tomatoes
Hyacinth House were lucky enough to be gifted some tomato plants. Our residents have really enjoyed looking after them and watching them grow. The chef has added them to a few dishes he has created. It has sparked lots of conversation from this residents who spoke about his allotment from some time ago.
We understand the importance of being pampered. Even though the hairdresser has not been able to come into the homes in-house hair salon at the moment. That hasn't stopped the care team from stepping in and treating the residents to a lovely blow dry and beauty treatments.
Special birthday celebrations joined from afar.
This lovely lady celebrated a special birthday. Some of her family joined her in the garden for cake, whilst her daughter managed to get more family on skype from around the world. Despite the time difference of Australia and Spain they managed to enjoy her virtual birthday surprise.
Who doesn't love being spoilt with afternoon tea fit for queen. These ladies that lunch loved just that. The chef made some beautiful individual cakes, scones and finger sandwich's all washed down with a choice of wine, tea or smoothie or even all 3. It was so nice to hear the ladies chatting and enjoying themselves.
Residents spent the afternoon looking through old photos, memorabilia and generally reminiscing about the past. They all shared stories of fun times in their youth and learnt a lot about each other.
