Meet our Activities Coordinator, Chloe King
I have been working at Llys-Y-Tywysog since 2017. I love being an Activities Coordinator, as it is my job to enhance the quality of life for each resident within the home. I organise daily activities, outings and events. There are regular meetings here in the home to discuss any new activities and to make sure the residents' needs and wishes are being met.
Activities at our home
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 Llys-Y-Tywysog Care Home
National Coffee Cake Day
National Coffee Cake Day was celebrated on April 7th. We baked a delicious coffee and walnut cake which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Along with the coffee cake we also enjoyed a variety of beers, the Hobgoblin went down particularly well. It really has been a week of treats and enjoyment here at Llys-Y-Tywysog.
Home Made Pizzas
Llys-Y-Tywysog finished the Easter weekend celebrations with making home made pizzas. Residents enjoyed creating their own tasty meals, there was an array of colourful foods to choose from as well as a selection of different cheeses. It was a really enjoyable treat, pizza followed by the remaining Easter chocolate!
Spring Flower Arrangements
Residents enjoyed creating spring flower arrangements and decorating the table for our special Easter Welsh lamb roast lunch. The arrangements looked beautiful adding to what was such a special weekend at Llys-Y-Tywysog.
Easter Bunny visits Llys-Y-Tywysog
There were special deliveries from a very special visitor at Llys-Y-Tywysog this weekend. Residents joined in the fun with lots of smiles as the Easter bunny delivered an Easter egg to every resident. It really did make us all smile especially as it was a masked bunny! After all the excitement residents enjoyed a traditional Welsh lamb roast lunch and settled down to enjoy a film in the afternoon.
Llys-Y-Tywysog was a hive of activity this weekend preparing for Easter. We wanted to make it look special for next weekend's celebrations. Residents made some beautiful decorations, bunting, wreaths, eggs along with Easter cards. It was great fun and it really does look wonderful all around home.
First Room Visits
The smiles say it all, it really has been wonderful to be able to open our doors again to family members. The nominated family members, have been able to go and sit in the resident's rooms and hold hands again. The Llys-Y-Tywysog visitor pod is also open for bookings for other family members and friends. Along with the 2nd vaccination it really has been a positive week here at Llys-Y-Tywysog.
