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.
Life at Moors Manor Care Home
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

Cards of Love
Moors Manor received a lovely visit from Mr Bagwell, Head Teacher and Mr Graves, Deputy Head Teacher delivering handmade cards and letters from children at Ferndown First School and Parley First school.
The children wrote 100 letters to care home residents in honour of Captain Sir Tom Moore, and their teachers rode over 100km whilst delivering them.
Miss Brown, from Parley First school has sewn, crocheted and knitted 100 hearts along with origami hearts from pupils at Ferndown First, which were delivered with the letters and cards.
We have all enjoyed reading the letters and beautiful cards at Moors Manor and were very impressed with the art work the children included.
