Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Heidi Innes

Hi, my name is Heidi and I have been at Oulton Park since January 2009, firstly starting as a Carer then, in December 2012, I became the Activities Coordinator on both units.

I am always searching for new and exciting activities for residents to take part in at Oulton Park. All events and daily activities are planned to enrich their lives and, of course, to be fun and stimulating for them.

Myself and Andrea work closely together to create and provide a varied exciting plan of activities for everyone. We love seeing their happy faces when a plan comes together and they enjoy whatever it is we have organised for them. We strive to constantly improve our activities programme and to personally improve and further develop within our job roles. 

Activities at Oulton Park

Our Activities coordinator at Oulton Park is Heidi Innes. She has been at Oulton Park for 8 years now and worked as a care assistant previous to becoming the activities coordinator for 4 years. We have a wonderful team here at Oulton Park and we all work together to provide a stimulating active environment for our residents that live here. We are always looking for new innovative ideas for our residents to be part of here and our activities coordinator works very hard on planning and providing a stimulating busy schedule of activities as well as assisting the residents with their daily living preferences. We have regular meetings with our families and residents to make sure we are providing things to suit their preferences. We as a home are registered with the National Activity Providers Association and strive to provide a person-centred approach for our residents here.

1980s Day

We encouraged staff to dress in 1980's attire and the residents joined in as well. We spent the morning making bright 1980s-themed costume jewellery and then had a disco for the residents and their loved ones after lunch, which everyone loved. Everyone was dancing and singing and a wonderful time was had by all.

A Furry Friend

Clem, our very large therapy dog, joined us recently – and residents loved making a fuss of him! He visits with his owners on a regular basis and we always like to stroke him and give him treats.
