Meet our Activities Coordinators, Marek Manteufel & Margaret Fagan
We both joined Marnel a while ago and we are very excited to be part of such a proactive and dedicated team. There are lots of ideas and innovations, all to enhance quality of life of our residents. Every day is different and to understand the needs of our residents, building relationship with them and keeping in touch with their families and friends, is the most important and rewarding job we could have wish for.
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 Marnel Lodge Care Home
New Year's Day Vaccination
It has been a truly wonderful start to 2021. All our residents and some team members received the magic shot of safety. Dr Masterson and Dr Abbott, from Chineham Medical Practice, were true angels and turned our hope of a safe home into reality. The team at Marnel worked tirelessly to support the doctors. What a wonderful Day!
A Christmas Gift
Our talented Maintenance Manager, Keith, with support of Monicton, created this beautiful Christmas Gift to the community. children in our neighbourhood, who often visit and truly love it. Thank you Keith and the team for such wonderful present.
Our lovely friend from the local community has made this beautiful gingerbread Christmas cake with the support of residents. We all looking forward to eating it soon. Happy sweet Christmas!
Our residents, with the support of our team, decided to make a big poppy to honour all heroes who gave their lives to give us freedom. There is a big poppy displayed in front of our home as a symbol of appreciation for all war veterans.
Guy Fawkes Day
Our Residents and Team enjoyed spectacular fireworks organised by Marek and Maggie, our well-being team, in our own winter garden.
To celebrate such significant day in our history, we had an indoor BBQ and Prosecco. It was truly fantastic evening with lots of fun.
On Tuesday 27th October, Cathy, Joy and Sebastian met to start organising Christmas for our residents.
Dunelm are preparing fabulous gifts for our residents, along with a virtual shopping session. Our residents will be able to shop via FaceTime, with a little help of shop assistants.
Before the store opens, Cathy and the the Dunelm team, directed by our residents, will be able to pick their favourite items in a very safe way.
