Activities at Kingfisher Lodge Care 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.

A Windy Weston trip!

We have been busy on another outing at Kingfisher Lodge! 

This time we took our lovely residents to a beautiful but very windy Weston-super-Mare. 

It was a brilliant day out, with a visit to the pier and some time spent in the arcade which brought back many lovely memories for our residents.

Of course a trip to the seaside is not complete without a stop for some delicious Fish and Chips. 

We cant wait for our next visit!

A trip to Bristol Zoo Project

At Kingfisher Lodge we recently went to the Bristol Zoo project. Staff and residents where on a mission to find some bears!

And the mission was a success.Not only did we have the pleasure of seeing bears, we also had the opportunity to see Wolves, Giraffes, Zebra and many more brilliant animals.

We really had a wonderful day seeing all the animals and learning all about their conservation projects.

The residents really enjoy getting out and experiencing something brand new enhancing their quality of life. Lets see where we go next!

Off to Puxton Park

Another Wednesday at kingfisher Lodge means out comes the mini bus keys! Karen and George this week are taking some residents to Puxton Park in Weston Super Mare.

From new furry baby piglets to feeding the baby lambs , fun was had by all that went along to this weeks trip. Any trip involving animals is always a loved trip by all. And any trip when Karen the chef tags along will always be full of fun and laughter.

The residents loved the leisurely strolls around the gardens and enjoyed watching the young children skipping happily and excitedly awaiting their turn to feed the baby animals.

This was a beautiful peaceful day enjoyed with a lovely pot of tea and a cream cake. No doubt this will be on this list for a future visit.

Yeeehaaa!

We've celebrated the horse racing which has been on over the last few weeks including Cheltenham Gold cup and the Grand National.

The residents and staff really enjoyed getting involved and picking a horse for the race. Every single person in the home including staff and visitors were given a horse and joined in the excitement of watching the race all together. Lots of shouting, screaming and cheering could be heard from the garden from both floors of the home. Prizes of large boxes of chocolate for 1st place winners and rosettes for all placed winners.This is always a winning afternoon for the residents and we cant wait to celebrate Ladies day at the races in June. 

An activity enjoyed by all, full of fun and lots of prizes. Thanks to Kelly and the team for making it happen.

Baking at Kingfisher Lodge

At Kingfisher lodge we have been busy with the baking equipment this week.Our residents always have  so much fun in our baking sessions and this week they have been cooking up a storm with some delicious biscuits.

Some of our lovely residents couldn’t wait for them to cool before tucking in to the delicious homemade treats they had made.

It was lovely to sit and chat with our residents as we talked about the found memories that had of baking with their families. One resident who tucked in before they went into the oven told us how their mum always used to let them do a quick taste test.
