Activities at Moors Manor Care Home

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.

Bibesh Shrestha

Activities Coordinator

Hi, My name is Bibesh Shrestha, Activity Coordinator for Moors Manor.

Having more than 10 years of professional experience in multiple sectors at different places have given me the confidence to get involved in any challenging environment where my skills and experience will be instrumental in achieving personal and social goals.

Being a motivator and influencer to the people around me has always been my passion, and also part of my profession. As an Activity Coordinator, my ultimate goal is to transfer my energy and spread my happiness.

Being active and full of energy with humbleness is what defines me and transferring that energy to the people around me has been my prime interest.

Life at Moors Manor Care Home

Steve Linn entertains

We had the wonderful Steve Linn come to the home to entertain our residents with a selection of songs which had everyone singing, tapping their toes, swaying their arms and even some of our ladies up and dancing. Steve also wore his glitzy shoes which one of our ladies really took a shine too.

We all had a wonderful afternoon and look forward to Steve coming back to the home perform.

All Saints Church Service

We had Rev Ruth from All Saints Church in St Leonard's come to the home to hold a church service for our residents to attend. Residents thoroughly enjoyed the service and were happy that they can still continue to follow their religious beliefs and be able to have holy communion in the home. We look forward to All Saints Church coming back soon.

Minibus trip to Haskins Garden Centre

This week's minibus outing had residents go to our local garden centre Haskins. Residents did a bit of shopping to choose some new plants for our garden and also bought some gluten free Easter Eggs for a couple of our residents.

Here at Moors Manor we can cater for all our residents dietary requirements and ensure everyone gets to enjoy the delicious food we serve in the home.

We finished off the trip with a stop at the coffee shop for tea and cake.

We had the fantastic BOURNE2SING Male Vocal Choir come back to the home again to entertain our residents as everyone thoroughly enjoyed their performance last time. The group sang a variety of songs from classical to pop to show tunes which had everyone singing along and some pieces moving us to tears in a nice way.

Everyone had a wonderful afternoon and we look forward to BOURNE2SING coming back again.

Easter decorations and card making

Residents have been busy making decorations and cards for loved ones for Easter. Everyone got rather creative and enjoyed making something a little different and also fun for the home.

Here is to a lovely Easter weekend for everyone.

Moors Manor Spring Fair

We held our Spring Fair here in the home where we had a selection of lovely stalls all offering wonderful items for residents, their families and the wider community to purchase. We had entertainment from Nick Sellars who had everyone singing and even some dancing! The Dining team provided an afternoon tea which was enjoyed by everyone. We finished off the Spring Fair with a raffle where we raised £113 for the Rotary Club of Ringwood who were very appreciative of the amount we raised. Everyone had a wonderful time and we look forward to the next event in the home.
