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 dedicated activities team consists of two people; one of which was divisional winner of Activities Coordinator of the Year and the other was the national winner of Volunteer of the Year at this years Barchester Care Awards.

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.

Painted Butterflies

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.
