Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Nicky Wilshaw

Nicky has worked at Moreton Hill for 11 years and is in charge of all the activities in the home, from in-house entertainment to theme days, to craft sessions and quizzes.

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!

A Day in the Life of a Moreton Hill Resident

Resident, Moira, has written a new poem and wants to share it with everyone:

A Day in the Life of a Moreton Hill Resident

Hip hip hoorah!
I wake up to a sunny day
Across the estuary, the sun glints on windows
Of cottages in the Forest of Dean
Which can clearly be seen.

Off to tend the plants in the conservatory,
Then an hour of Tai Chi
To help my body stay healthy.

Break for lunch, 
Delicious food to much!
Afternoon activity;
A session of pottery
With super teacher, Paddy!

Now, one of the items I enjoy best:
Retire to my comfy nest.
Will I have any success
Answering question on Pointless?

Our Magical Mystery Tour

This wonderful poem was written by a resident:

Our Magical Mystery Tour

First trip of the year
The car is in gear
We are off to hunt for snowdrops!
White fluffy clouds like mops
Spread over a clear blue sky
The sun is shining on high
Climb up Selsley Hill
On to wide open spaces
Where Cotswold sheep with white faces
Enjoy the swedes
Making room for new seeds
Fresh furrow ploughed
Attract the seagull crowd
Now down a steep winding lane
Surrounded by trees
To our great pleasure
We find treasure
Clumps of white bells
Snuggled up in the dells
Mission accomplished
But no ... we are not finished
The view over The Severn
Completes our heaven
With a rainbow display
To end the day!

Our Christmas Tree

As you can see, Moreton Hill has yarn bombed the Christmas tree with pom-poms made by residents, staff and even relatives. What fun it's been and the result is truly fabulous!

Our Latest Project

These fabulous fish are the results of our latest pottery project; the residents really enjoyed making them along with the seaweed! Pottery is taught once a month on the second Wednesday with paddy, a local potter from Gloucester.

Scary Hair Day

Scary hair day went down well with staff and residents. Resident, Shirley, in her rainbow wig, enjoyed the double looks she got and Head Housekeeper, Sue, just confused everyone as her 'before' look was scarier than her 'after'.
