Meet our Activities Coordinator, Tamzin Molney
Hello, my name is Tamzin and I am the Activities Coordinator at Oakfield, my role is to ensure everyone can enjoy the group and one to one activities in the home.
I am always open to new ideas and love to see residents try something new!
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!
Life at Oakfield Care Home
Knitting for Charity
Residents started knitting squares to make one blanket for a refugee charity, but once some of them started, they couldn’t stop. We had so many squares that residents couldn’t join, so an incredible local lady, Janet, joined all of them! we have seven blankets!
Some will be sent to refugees overseas, some will be kept for our home as lap blankets and we are sending one to the cat's home too.
National Friendship Day
Oakfield residents have been choosing pretty fabrics and dried flowers to making scented gift pouches this week, they have posted them to their friends for National Friendship Day.
Oakfield raised a well earned glass of prosecco on the balcony for raising an amazing £510 for a St. Peter’s Hospice, who came to Oakfield to say thank you and receive their giant cheque.
During lockdown, the residents completed 26 different challenges over 26 days. We would like to thank all the friends and family of Oakfield for their generous donations and say a big congratulations to the residents for completing all the challenges.
National Ice Cream Day
Residents at Oakfield revelled in all things sweet on World Ice cCeam Day with a pop-up ice cream sundae bar in the gardens on 11th July.
They shared all the traditional toppings, plus a fair few more sat in the afternoon sunshine with a fun quiz, and then a second round of ice creams!
Our residents love getting out into our beautiful gardens whenever the sun shines, especially when there is ice cream on offer. Whilst we sat out we spotted the deer in our gardens, which really was the cherry on top!
Oakfield residents are working their muscles and having a good stretch in regular yoga sessions, then relaxed with gentle massages to music and uplifting zen aromatherapy. We enjoy this in groups together and one-to-one sessions tailored to each individual needs with Tamzin, who has studied yoga.
We are welcoming new residents!
