Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.
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 Moors Manor Care Home
National Dog Day!
Staff and residents got up close and personal with some furry friends when they celebrated all the wonderful things about man’s best friend on National Dog Day.
Residents had a brilliant time with the dogs from Caring Canines in our lovely garden.
One resident commented, "We have had such a nice day watching the dogs do their show and getting to stroke them and see them up close. They are all such characters!"
Celebrating Wimbledon at Moors Manor!
This weekend was quite an exciting one for Residents and Staff at Moors Manor!
We gathered together to cheer on our favourite sports men and women as they battled it out for the top spot in the Grand Slam!
On the edge of their seats for every winning match, our Residents enjoyed a wonderful afternoon tea of homemade scones from our in-house kitchen, fresh locally sourced strawberries, and it was certainly Pimm’s o’clock all day long!
We had a brilliant time enjoying a British Summertime tradition, and are all looking forward to next year's matches!
High Tea at Moors Manor!
To celebrate National Cream Tea day, Moors Manor brought out the finish local jam's and cream's to adorn our freshly baked scones, courtesy of our hospitality team.
Our resident's dolloped on the fruity jam, and enjoyed lashings of fresh clotted cream in our beautiful gardens, under the warm afternoon sun!
Chocolate Heaven at Moors Manor!
Perhaps our favourite day of the year, Moors Manor was pleased to be celebrating World Chocolate Day on Wednesday 7th July. We had a little something for everyone at our home, indulging ourselves in all kinds of luxurious chocolates, as well as the family favourite chocolate bars!
Our Activity Coordinator, Suzanne, ran a chocolate tasting afternoon, with each of our residents and team members nibbling all sorts of chocolates, and placing their bets on what they were – Cadbury’s seemed to be universally recognisable by all!
Even our little guests couldn’t keep their hands off the double chocolate cupcakes! Next year’s World Chocolate Day can’t come soon enough...
Staff and residents were celebrating being able to go on short excursions again as lockdown restrictions ease across the country. Residents are now able to go on a short trip to outdoor spaces without having to isolate on their return.
Residents enjoyed enjoy a walk along the beach, having an ice cream, taking in the lovely views, and eating some fish and chips.
International Nurses' Day
Coinciding with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, International Nurses Day, held on Wednesday 12th May, is a day to celebrate nurses and care staff around the world. Residents and staff at were happy to get involved by providing our Local Nurses with Afternoon Tea Boxes.
In 2021, the World Health Organisation is seeking to highlight the ways in which nurses are innovating and to explore what the future of nursing could look like. This year, more than ever, we are hugely indebted to all our care staff, and we are incredibly proud to applaud their extraordinary efforts and commitment, on this special day of recognition. International Nurses’ Day is a day to give thanks for the dedication of care givers everywhere, who go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver extraordinary care and support
