Activities at Lawton Manor Care Home

We understand that the people we support have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events are organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.

Chloe Cameron

Activities Coordinator

This is Chloe and she is our Activities Coordinator here at Lawton Manor. Her job is to physically and mentally stimulate our residents by offering a range of activities for them to enjoy. She wants to get everyone involved and make our home community and atmosphere as positive and welcoming as possible.


Making sure that our residents have things to do that they really enjoy doing is something that Chloe holds very close to her heart. It is so important to make sure that they are happy and enjoy all of the activities and events that we host for them. A lot of our residents also enjoy our special trips out on our Minibus as we create new, special memories together.

Life at Lawton Manor Care Home

Andrè Rieu Live... in Meadow View Lounge!

We all absolutely loved our Andrè Rieu concert in Meadow View! Recently some of our new residents have been requesting more classical music, as they all make friends and learn they share similar interests. A personal appearance from Andrè Rieu himself was slightly out of our magic wand range, but we did manage to find some clips online that we played on our TV and treated as our own personal concert!

We enjoyed cake and tea while listening to his classic music! We find listening to music really helps unwind and helps us relax. If we can’t go to his concert, we will bring the concert to us!

Celebrating St Patrick's Day

We celebrated St Patrick’s Day in recognition of the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. The home was decorated with shamrocks and we all enjoyed exploring the Irish culture through a variety of themed activities.

Our talented chef prepared a fantastic spread of traditional Irish dishes for all to enjoy, all washed down with Guinness or a glass of Bailey's.

Our residents all had a brilliant day!

Nutrition & Hydration Week

Here at Lawton Manor our residents have been tasting fruits with a ‘guess the fruit’ platter in aid of Nutrition & Hydration Week.

We all loved trying fruits from different places around the world, some new fruits we’ve never tried before. It was great guessing what some of the weird and wonderful flavours were!

Hydration and Nutrition is very important to us and we value the importance of it in our everyday health and wellbeing. Our head chef, Nick is always cooking up fresh and nutritious meals to help give all of our residents the goodness that they need!

Being Funny for Money on Red Nose Day

Happy Red Nose Day from all Staff and Residents at Lawton Manor! 

Our residents really loved putting on red noses, in support of Red Nose Day. Throughout the day, we all tried to do at least one thing to make someone else laugh and be 'funny for money' in aid of Red Nose Day and the charity Comic Relief.

We all had fun trying on the red nose, all pulling funny faces and making each other laugh! In the evening we got together to watch the wonderful TV show of Comic Relief and enjoy the comedy involved.

Mother's Day

Our home was beautifully decorated with fresh flowers and bunting in recognition of Mother’s Day and all the mothers in our home. During the day, we celebrated by arranging flowers and chocolates for our ladies, and hosting an afternoon tea party for everyone to enjoy.

Every one of our lovely ladies is very special, and very appreciated by all of the residents and staff here at Lawton Manor.

We would like to wish everyone a Happy Mothers Day, we hope you were all spoilt.

Valentine's Day

Our lovely Barbara & Joan have some dating advice for the younger generation as to what makes a successful relationship!

Barbara said ‘Just keep loving one another, always work as a team and remember you are equals.’

Joan, who has been married for 72 years said ‘communication is key, always love one another unconditionally and remember, your wife is always right!'

All of our staff and residents at Lawton Manor would like to wish you all a happy Valentine's Day!
