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.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies
Life at Meadow Park Care Home
Virtual event with Art Historian
Residents across our services had a delightful time during a special virtual sensory storytelling event, led by Art Historian Jon Sleigh from the Historic Royal Palaces.
Jon took us on a journey to discover some of the more unusual and unexpected inhabitants of the palaces and the Tower of London, sharing fascinating stories about the pets at the palaces.
Whilst enjoying the virtual experience, our residents were treated to hot beverages, delicious biscuits, berries and cakes. It was a truly lovely time for all.
Meadow Park Street Party
The whole home celebrated the coronation of King Charles III on bank holiday with a good old fashioned street party, despite the gloomy weather, staff brought the battering boards inside, and the party went ahead. Local singer Mark McCann entertained everyone with songs from the decades, party food and drinks were flowing all day, residents waved their flags and danced the afternoon away.
The rich history of coronations
Across our services Residents had a wonderful time participating in an interactive virtual talk with Pippa Catterall, Professor of History and Policy at the University of Westminster, where we delved into the rich history of coronations.
During the talk, we explored fascinating topics such as the coronation chair, the crown, and other significant aspects related to King Charles' upcoming coronation. Our residents were thrilled to have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the memoirs of past coronations from 1937 and 1953, as well as learning about the coronation oath and what to expect from the ceremony, including the music, guests, and pageantry.
The great outdoors!
Residents have been making the most of the finer weather. Our memory lane community benefit from an enclosed courtyard with garden furniture and potting beds for all to enjoy. It’s like a little sun trap out there and the residents love it! We enjoy the great outdoors.
Easter egg hunt
Residents really enjoyed getting out into the homes courtyard garden for a very special Easter egg hunt, and they were accompanied by the Easter Bunny himself, residents dug up the beds to find chocolate eggs and treats and there was lots of laughter to be heard! Happy Easter.
Residents enjoyed a jam packed Easter with themed arts and crafts, making chocolate nests, Easter Egg Hunts, enjoying lots of delicious food and drink, decorating the home and much more! We love a ‘holiday’ and a chance to celebrate here at Meadow Park.
