Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lorna Mankeey
Lorna joined Moreton Hill in 2021 as Activities Coordinator. Lorna worked in another local care home in the same role, so brings a wealth of experience and ideas. Lorna is experienced working with dementia residents and is committed to a person centred approach that is resident led. Lorna and Jackie together plan a varied and interesting programme of activities for the residents.
Activities at our home
Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!
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 Moreton Hill Care Home
Christmas Panto Performance
There was a full house for our Christmas show "The Best of Christmas" performed by Tickled Pink Productions - residents really enjoyed the show it was great fun.
Happy Christmas Day!
Christmas Day really was fabulous at Moreton Hill, our own elf delivered gifts, there were family visits, pre dinner drinks followed by a traditional Christmas lunch with delicious food. A big thank you to all the team for everything that went into the preparations and for those who worked over Christmas weekend. There really were smiles all round.
Christmas Carol Service
We had a wonderful carol service. Moira, Daney, Roger and Wynn all did a reading and Marion sang a solo verse of Once on Royal David's City. It was lovely to see so many residents singing along to all the well known favourites. We followed the service with mulled wine and mince pies.
Creating Christmas Table Decorations
Moreton Hill have had a fabulous few days of festivities. A big thank you to all the team for everything that has gone into the preparations and for those who have worked this weekend and will do this week. We have lots of wonderful photos to share over the coming days starting with our creative residents who put together floral displays for the Christmas tables.
