Activities at Oulton Park Care Home

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.

Louise Hunter-Hall

Life Enrichment & Activities Coordinator

Hello my name is Louise, I am the life enrichment and activities coordinator at Oulton park care centre.

I joined Oulton Park late 2023 but I have worked in the care industry for over 20 years and I have a compassion for my role and work. During the 20years I have supported many different adults with different care needs including, nursing care, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, independent living and 1:1 needs. I have both my level 2&3 in care and level 2 in sign language.

At Oulton my role is to create and organise a range of engaging and meaningful activities. My role brings me a great deal of comfort and joy.

If I can just make 1 persons life better during my working day at Oulton Park then the day has been a success. I feel honoured, fortunate and blessed to do the job I do.

Over the past 2 days the residents and staff at Oulton Park Care Centre - Barchester Healthcare have been honouring the bravery and sacrifice of the soldiers who faught during the DDay landings in 1944. Our residents reminisced this moment in time remembering all that were lost and their loved ones who had joined the fight. We finished the 2 days with entertainment from the Vibettes.

Chocolate Extravaganza

In celebration of dementia action week and Cadburys 200 birthday, our residents and staff enjoyed a week of chocolate fun. We had baking with bobby where our residents learnt how to make the best chocolate cake using Cadbury chocolate. We then created our own chocolate bars from the wrappers which the residents designed to melting the chocolate and using a variety of fillings they created their own tasty bars which residents and staff got to try once the bars had set. It was great fun!

Mini Bus Advernture

Who doesn’t love a sunny day out! We enjoyed a lovely trip down to Kensington gardens to enjoy a peaceful walk and a nice drink in the café. Once we arrived We enjoyed watching a game of bowls. The residents and staff enjoyed talking about the game and watching the skill of the players. It was wonderful to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and great company.

Duckling Fun

We were joined by five duckling friends, who came for cuddles and a splash round in a  paddling pool for our residents to enjoy, for a few of our residents this was the first time they held a duckling and it was very special to witness. Two of the ducklings still needed to be named so our residents on memory lane voted and called one of the ducklings dusky and on hawthorn they voted and called the second one Oulton. It was wonderful to spend the morning with the beautiful creatures and see how they bond to the people around them the residents enjoyed it thoroughly asking for the ducks to visit again
