Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jean Bourne
I decided to work in the care sector, because I was made redundant from my previous job as a taxi controller of 26 years. So I decided to change career and since then I have worked in the care sector for 3 ½ years all of which have been at Kingswood Court.
Before I came here I worked as a taxi controller and did administration work. I have played darts for 48 years, I am the captain of the local pub team and married with 6 happy grandkids.
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.
Life at Kingswood Court Care Home
Special birthday's in the visiting suite
Such a wonderful afternoon as this lovely lady celebrated her 100th birthday recently. Everyone pulled out all the stops to ensure she had a day to remember. All topped off by being able to have her family celebrate due to our designated visiting suite. Although it had to be behind glass the day was so special.
This lovely couple have recently celebrated their wedding anniversary. They were treated to a special meal complete with fizz and then an afternoon putting their feet up with their favourite film. They picked Kingswood Court as their forever home together. We are so pleased they did as they are just lovely to have around.
Lovely afternoon, sweet treats, pots of tea and a good old natter with good friends just perfect.
Colouring for fun
Never to old for colouring, sometimes relaxing with soothing music and some colouring pencils is just the tonic you need.
Zoom Music Concert
We are all embracing our new virtual world, and always thinking of ways we can make sure our residents are as social as possible. We invited a local band to zoom with us for a music concert. Everyone loved the event and we will make sure there will be lots more to come.
Lovely day celebrating Valentines day. Everyone had a special three course meal that was prepared and served by the chef. Followed by flowers and afternoon tea full of sweet treats and pots of tea.
