Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sally Allen

Sally joined Barchester in 2014, initially as a Care Assistant and then as part of the activities team. Now she has taken on the role of Lead Activities Coordinator, working closely with her team of four.

Sally’s main role is focusing on improving residents' quality of life here. She aims to have something for everyone, ranging from trips out in our minibus to afternoon tea in the garden, and much more.

Sally and her team are currently building strong connections with the local community by interacting with the Royal British Legion, Red2Green (a charitable organisation here in our village) and the local children’s clubs.

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!

Garden Centre Visit

Residents loved visiting our local garden centre. They like to purchase plants for their rooms and sample the tea and cakes on sale in the café.

Summer Fair

Residents, families, friends and staff enjoyed beautiful sunny weather at our Summer Fair. We were entertained by a singing duo and a ukulele band. There were various stalls and side shows and the local Air Cadets joined us with their Toy Tombola.

As always, our cake stall proved to be very popular and our now famous sausage rolls sold out very quickly!

Everybody commented on the happy and relaxed atmosphere, and especially enjoyed watching Judith, our General Manager, throw wet sponges at Narcis, our Deputy Manager, when he was in the stocks.

Flower Arranging

Residents at Oaklands love to do a bit of flower arranging every now and then. During our most recent session, the flowers were arranging in jam jars and tea cups. What a pretty display they made!

Residents and toddlers joined together for exciting interactive fun with Hartbeeps, who provide award-winning, magical, multi-sensory classes for babies and toddlers. We enjoyed bubbles, costumes, puppets and sparkly parachutes, and lots of singing.

Royal Birthday Celebrations

Residents and their families and friends celebrated Her Majesty’s birthday by having an afternoon tea party on the patio in our main garden. The sun shone beautifully for us, so we were able to enjoy our afternoon and sitting out in the garden.
