Meet our Activities Coordinator, Hannah Collins

I am thrilled to be part of such a fun and friendly team! I love being creative and active and really enjoy my day when I can see our residents really enjoying theirs. 

I ensure that residents don’t leave their hobbies behind when they come to Kings Park and so our weekly activity schedule is tailored around what our residents enjoy doing. That could be a live zoom tour about Beluga Whales in Iceland or a wine and cheese tasting evening with our Chef! 

I also arrange regular outings for our minibus trips as being out and about is so important to many of our residents. I look forward to welcoming residents, relatives and visitors to Kings Park and hope to see you soon!

Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.

Activities and Events Partnerships

As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

Run Run As Fast As You Can!

The Christmas season wouldn’t be festive without Gingerbread men!

Here are some of our residents baking some for our afternoon tea and they sure were tasty!

And the winner is.............!

Congratulations to Teresa Trickett for winning our Christmas Hamper Competition!

Lucy, our Home Services Advisor, delivered the prize in person this afternoon in time for Christmas and was delighted to have a chat with Teresa about Christmas plans. Teresa also mentioned how lovely it is to see what our residents and staff get up to at Kings Park!

From trips to Monkey World , bowling in our large foyer, Barn Owls flying onto our residents hands to a visit from Kelloggs, the Miniature Shetland Pony ….the first three months since Kings Park opened has certainly been a hive of activities!

Well done Teresa! Merry Christmas from all of us at Kings Park!

Kelloggs Comes to Kings Park

When Kelloggs makes our day even more special! 

It’s not every day a very smartly dressed miniature Shetland Pony knocks on your door for some shelter from the cold wind and rain but we were delighted to welcome Kelloggs and his human friends to Kings Park today for some well needed respite care….especially at Christmas!

Once inside our warm and welcoming Home, Kelloggs was keen to meet our residents and delight them with his warm and snuffling muzzle.

One of our hostess’s, Jo, was eager to ensure every resident had the opportunity to meet Kelloggs and helped him in and out of the lift!

Every touch and memory is so very special. 

Thank you to Linking Hearts therapy horses for your very special visit to our home today. Merry Christmas to Kelloggs and you All!

Christmas Cake for Ferndown Mayor's Coffee Morning

Our Chef baked a tasty Christmas Cake for the Mayor of Ferndown’s Christmas Carol Concert that was due to be held last Wednesday.

Unfortunately, due to new government restrictions and our own first consideration being the safety of our residents, we had to hold back from attending and then, sadly, the event was cancelled too with the Mayor putting safety first as well.

What to do with the cake then?!

Well we asked The Mayor to choose a local group that she would like us to give the cake to and so this morning, Home Services Advisor, Lucy Lester together with her colleague Alison delivered the cake to a coffee morning held and supported by the Mayor at the Barrington Theatre in Ferndown!

It was a pleasure to meet the Mayor and all the coffee morning attendees and to wish them all a very Merry Christmas!

Special thanks to our Mayor of Ferndown and Kate from Ferndown Town Council
