Meet our Activities Coordinator, Donna Guyver

Hi, my name is Donna, and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Kingsland House.

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.

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

Life at Kingsland House Care Home

Poppy Wreath Making

In the build up to Remembrance Day we prepared and created some beautiful wreaths by cutting out shapes of autumn leaves and mixing with poppies for our beautiful designs.

Messages of Thanks for Remembrance Day

Time and care was taken here at Kingsland House to create some beautiful heart shapes and write messages of thanks on them for Remembrance Day.  We also discussed the meaning behind the message in the heartfelt poem “The Poppy”.

Keeping our birds fed through Winter

Here at Kingsland House we like to take care of our birds throughout the Winter, so we topped up our bird feeders in the garden and enjoyed some fresh winter air at the same time.

Halloween Celebrations

A weekend of Halloween activities took place here at Kingsland House from pumpkin carving to a Halloween-themed buffet and cakes provided by our chef. We also opened our Kingsland Tavern Bar to add to the celebrations.

PetPals

Residents were very excited to stroke the Guinea pigs and play with the kittens in the pen. Great therapeutic fun was had by all.

Smoothie Tasting

We decided to put our taste buds to the test and sampled various flavours of milkshakes and smoothies. I think it’s safe to say that all were enjoyed as we discussed the various fruits that are used to create these flavours.
