Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sharon Wheeler

I joined Middletown Grange in 2018, but have worked in an activities-based role for over 10 years. My motto is to make the impossible possible and to encourage residents to be as active and as happy as they can.

Activities at Middletown Grange

We aim to provide a variety of activities that will both mentally and physically stimulate the people we support. Residents have a range of different needs and interests, and it is crucial that these are reflected in the activities available, so that each individual is able to participate to the best of their ability. We organise both group and individual social events that everyone is welcome to take part in; there is a weekly outing to local places of interest, including the garden centre and the local farms, parks and museums. In addition, we enjoy regular visits from entertainers and even exotic animals. We also host events such as 'Beach Day' that relatives and friends are encouraged to participate in. Getting involved in charities is a big part of our ethos, so events such as 'PJs for Pudsey' and pirate-themed days are regularly hosted to raise money for different foundations, including the Alzheimer’s Society.

Life at our home

Home Baking

Residents enjoyed a spot of biscuit making. We mixed rolled and cut our way through the ingredients and created a lovely set of biscuits ready for 3 o’clock tea and coffee.

Sponsored Walk

Residents and staff joined Cedar Court Care Home in Witney on a walk through the centre of town to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society. All in all, we walked 1.9 miles and raised almost £300. This was quite the achievement for one resident, who managed to walk the whole 2 miles with a couple of breaks in-between.

Pet Therapy

Residents enjoyed a visit from some dogs on International Dog Day. Pets are a vital part of people’s lives and provide company and friendship for those we support.

A Farewell to Friends

We wished good luck to two of our much-loved and admired nurses, who worked with us for 10 years. We presented them with flowers, cake and a card. Staff and residents gathered round for a hearty farewell.

Pamper Evening

We hosted a pamper evening at Middletown using face packs, a foot spa and wine. Staff created a fantastically relaxing evening for residents.

Getting Outdoors

Residents have been out and about enjoying a picnic at the local park for lunch and having a cup of tea and a chat in our lovely garden. Residents love their garden so much that they broke out into a rendition of 'Danny Boy', which really pleased one of our Irish residents, as he got to join in without much effort.
