Meet our Activities Coordinator, Yamina Klock–Mouffok
I have been working as an Activities Coordinator in care homes since 2002, starting my career at Four Seasons, then joining Barchester in 2014. I was awarded a Great British Care Award in 2013 and was a finalist at the National Care Awards in the same year, as well as being a finalist in the 2014 Great British Care Awards. I have a natural love for the elderly and enjoy every single day in their company.
Activities at Magnolia Court
Our Activities Coordinators work as a team by involving staff and relatives in the activities sessions. They implement and plan activities tailored to residents' likes, dislikes, beliefs and life stories. Lots of people choose to place loved ones in Magnolia Court because of our reputation for hosting great activities all year long!
Life at our home
Magnolia had a fantastic Christmas party, a Spectacular Christmas pantomime was booked and the police community made it more special by sharing the event with us. Our residents and relatives enjoyed it so much and thanked the home for organising this wonderful show.
Cinderella, the royal messenger, the best prince’s friend and Veronica, the step sister of Cinderella, from Art Depot Theatre came dressed in their finest costumes to wish a Merry Christmas to our lovely residents, they really made their day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Alyth Kindergarten Visited Magnolia
Alyth Garden Nursery visited Magnolia this month, Jenny was happy to play accordion and had art and craft session with the residents. The nursery will be visiting us on a regular basis.
Magnolia hosted people from the community for lunch on Friday the 22nd November. Our guest really enjoyed the meal and enjoyed the birthday party in the afternoon, they were really pleased to cut the cake and blow the candles with our lovely residents.
Local Arts Competition
Magnolia Court was proud to enter the silver week care homes art competition in the borough. Our piece of art purely made by the residents and our volunteer artist Michelle Jebili, was highly recommended.
Prizes were distributed by the mayor of Barnet cllr Caroline Stock on Grandparent’s day.
