Meet our Activities Coordinator, Chloe King
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
Keeping In Touch
It is important to stay in touch with family members during this unprecedented time. Some of the residents sent lovely handwritten messages to their loved ones, which brings them happiness.
Residents at Llys-Y-Tywysog enjoy a baking class every week. It’s a good way to interact with one another and it’s also a good way to use their cognitive skills by choosing the recipe, selecting the correct ingredients and tools to use.
Residents enjoyed creating a flower collage. They used different coloured felt for the flowers and cut out pretty card, then finished by adding some pretty jewels to the flowers. They were then displayed around the home for everyone to see.
Flower Arranging Session
The residents look forward to flower arranging every month where they can arrange a beautiful bunch of flowers to display in the home. This enables the residents to be creative and use their imagination, it also encourages use of the fingers and hands and is a great stress reliever, promoting a calm atmosphere.
Fruit kebabs are a fun, refreshing and healthy treat. We went with a combo of our favourite fruits: strawberries, grapes, banana, apple, kiwi fruit and clementine’s. The residents enjoyed picking what fruit they wanted to make their fruit kebab, and enjoyed dipping them into melted chocolate!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas Party. Starting the day off with the wonderful Chris Caines and friend who entertained us with all our old time Christmas favourites, in between a load of jokes that had us all giggling.
We then celebrated with a Christmas buffet style party, pulling crackers with friends and loved ones in all our Christmas hat glory.
