Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sarah Collins
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am the Activities Coordinator. I love working at Kingsland House because we have so much fun. The residents and I enjoy various different activities, but our favourite thing to do is going out on the minibus to see the local areas, and of course, for coffee and cake!
Activities at Kingsland House
Kingsland House have a variety of activities that our residents help us choose. Celebrating Life in our home is jovial and fun and from our weekly delivered activity sheet, our residents can chose exactly what they want to join in with.
Our activities range from exercise classes, gardening, arts and crafts, games to food-fun clubs. We also offer our in house church services, our own home cinema, our mobile pub - The Kingsland Tavern, visiting Pat Dogs, musical entertainers, minibus outings, theme days and birthday celebrations. For those residents being nursed in their rooms we have one to one activities sessions.
At Kingsland House we believe that activities are hugely important to stimulate and uplift, and getting to know our residents interests and lifestyle choices assist our activities team in creating events and activities to suit their expressed wishes and capabilities. We also encourage our residents' families and friends to join in with as much as they can to make Kingsland House a loving family atmosphere.
Life at our home
Celebrating Our CQC Rating
Staff, residents and guests had a lovely afternoon celebrating success with a buffet, refreshments and music after receiving our 'Good' CQC report result.
Singing & Dancing
Jodie Shemmans is one of our favourite regular entertainers who sings to our resident’s most loved classic songs. The residents all came together for an afternoon of singing and dancing!
Nadine, from Creative Mojo, came to our home for a special project. She presented a series of beautifully painted butterflies and created a master piece. Residents also painted a separate set of butterflies to ‘Fly’ to National Trust Knightshayes Garden in Devon, and to be a part of an art display in honour of National Care Home Open Day 2019!
The Magic Table
We are delighted to announce that we have just had a Magic Table installed, which is an interactive light projector, designed to support residents living with dementia by keeping them engaged through specialised games.
The light projections respond to hand and arm movement, promoting movement, allowing residents to stay stimulated and, most of all, have fun!
You can read more about it on this page.
Residents came together at our Gardening Club to complete a special project to build a scarecrow to protect our cherry trees.
Egg-cellent Easter Fun
Staff, residents and family enjoyed an eggs-cellent Easter afternoon filled with silly games and competitions. We also enjoyed lots of delicious treats, baked especially by our hospitality team!
