Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sam Willis
Hi I'm Sam, activities coordinator here at Moors Manor.
I joined Moors Manor in 2021 as a care assistant and found my passion was enhancing the residents day with meaningful activities. I enjoy talking to the residents about what they want to do and building this into our activities schedules. We have some really exciting plans coming up including book club, gardening projects and mini bus trips out.
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
World Cocktail Day
To celebrate world cocktail day we held a cocktail tasting party here at Moors Manor. Our wonderful chef made some lovely sweet and savoury canapés for us to enjoy as we sampled some Pina Colada's, woo woo's and many more. It was a close call as to which cocktail was the favourite but Bramble came out on top.
Thinking caps on for today's scrabble match.
The ladies met in the café for a lovely game of scrabble this morning, a competitive game took place, very close for the winner and 2nd place so a re match is booked in.
