Activities at Oulton Park

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 and 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.

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

American Day!

We had a great time during our annual USA-themed fun day.

With great American style food from Hot Dogs to Biscuits, to Burgers and New York Cheesecake we were stuffed by the end.

We played a host of USA style games including bowling, basketball and Texas Hold'em poker.

Jubilee Celebrations

We had a fantastic time celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.

We were all feeling incredibly patriotic as we watched the Royal Parade, sang the anthem, enjoyed Pimm's in the sunshine and dressed the home for the occasion. Many of our wonderful residents were able to remember the Queen's coronation 70 years ago and it was fascinating to listen to their stories and memories of the parties that were held when they were children.

Garden Centre Trip Out

We got up and out early this week to make the most of the great weather and get to the garden centre to pick out some new flowers and plants for the gardens. We also had a look at the farm animals and enjoyed the sunshine.

We had a great rummage around before stopping in the cafe for a cup of tea and some cake.

Queen's Birthday And National Tea Day

We love any excuse for a party at Oulton Park and Her Majesty's birthday seemed like a great reason to bake cakes and enjoy ourselves.

The residents had a wonderful time reminiscing about the Queen whilst enjoying unusual teas and delicious cakes.

Easter Bank Holiday Fun

It has been a fully Easter themed Bank Holiday and our residents have done it all! We've baked Easter cakes, had a visit from the Easter Bunny, hidden, found and eaten Easter Eggs, played Easter-themed bingo and made the most of the Bank Holiday sunshine by getting out into our stunning gardens.

Faith services were available to those who wanted them and we all had a lot of laughs this weekend.

Easter Fun In The Sun!

What a wonderful Easter we had at Oulton Park. We were very pleased to play host to the 3rd Oulton Rainbows and Brownies as they hunted through our beautiful gardens for eggs left by the crafty Easter Bunny (and kindly donated by the Waitrose!).

Residents and the team here at Oulton enjoyed watching the children searching high and low for the chocolatey treats. We all had a lot of fun and we are looking forward to having the Brownies and Rainbows back to visit us again soon!
