Activities at Meadow Park Care 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 Meadow Park Care Home
The Dignity in care campaign, launched today to coincide with Dignity Action Day, which advocates for compassionate and respectful care
Staff wore red, which represents Dignity, and residents had discussions with our Dignity champion, about what Dignity means to them, and what Dignity is
We made a ‘Dignity Tree with everyone’s faces on, with what their definition of Dignity is, with Respect being popular, as well as being offered choice and being polite to each other
Chef Mandy also cooked up some delicious cupcakes with red icing for everyone to enjoy
Dignity is promoted in Meadow Park and put into practice with everything we do, and today we recognised the importance of it. ‘You’ve either got it, or you haven’t’ Shirley said.
Love was most definitely in the air at Meadow Park, staff and residents had a fun filled day with lots of love hearts and kisses. Valentine’s day was especially special for those who live with their significant others here at Meadow Park as they shared this love filled day together. We like to make these occasions extra special and our staff certainly go the extra mile to make these days memorable.
Chinese New Year
Residents have had a Chinese banquet today, and have been getting crafty in order to decorate the home, they have sampled some of the Chinese delicacies that some haven’t tasted before.
From spring rolls to prawn toast, with sweet chilli dips, residents have enjoyed tantalising their tastebuds
Our second chef Kerry rustled up a delicious Chicken Curry with rice for lunch, and Vegetable Chow Mein for tea, which all went down a treat
Chinese New Year…. Celebrated around the world, the festival recognises the second new moon after the winter solstice and the beginning of spring.
Today saw our second Dementia Cafe of the year.
Residents and their families came together and got to know each other over Tea and Cake.
Our Dementia cafes are an ideal opportunity for residents and their families to come together, everybody is welcome and we invite the community to come along too.
Master Florist tutorial
Across our homes we had a fantastic time joining, Kathryn Delve, Master Florist, for a Valentine’s-inspired live virtual flower arranging demonstration. Kathryn shared brilliant and creative ways to decorate our tables with beautiful flowers that are sure to make your heart swoon!
Those participating in this virtual event put their skills to the test and followed along with some amazing creations of their own. Residents truly enjoyed the experience.
Today we welcomed back the lovely Marlene and Sylvia for a cuppa and a catch up over Fish and Chips, in the paper of course.
Marlene and Sylvia came to Meadow Park for respite and have since settled back in the community, today we brought them back for lunch and to see their friends.
Our residents look forward to seeing them, as they not only know each other from Meadow Park, but from the past, with our Freda going to school with Marlene, many moons ago.
Our ladies had a lovely catch up, and shared photos with each other, from their school days, with staff trying to guess who was who.
It’s very special for us to be able to still engage and keep in touch with these ladies, and they know our door is always open for them, if they just fancy a cuppa or a chat.
February may be a short month but we have lots of exciting things planned - all welcome.
