Meet our Activities Coordinator, Heidi Innes

Hi, my name is Heidi and I have been at Oulton Park since Jan 2009, firstly starting as a Carer then in Dec 2012, I became the Activities Coordinator on the Hawthorn & Poplar units.

I am always searching for new exciting ideas for our residents to join in with and enjoy either on a one-to-one basis or in a group.

All events and daily activities are planned to enrich the lives of our residents and of course to be fun and stimulating for them.

Myself and Clare (Activities Co-ordinator on Memory Lane) work closely together to create and provide a varied exciting plan of activities for all of our residents. 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 plan 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.

Open Day

We celebrated our Open Day on Saturday 27th January by having a fishing-themed day, and we started the morning off with a visit from Jennifer from the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth, who brought some interesting fishing items to look at and talk about, which sparked lots of lovely memories for residents. We then all enjoyed fish and chips for our lunch, finishing off the day with a visit from some chorus singers. Thank you to everyone who attended!

Christmas Day

On Christmas Day, we spent the morning opening presents together whilst having pre-lunch drinks. Residents took it in turns to open their gifts and loved what they all got! We then all had our Christmas lunch together and watched the Queen's speech afterwards, followed by a Christmas-themed quiz, which everyone found amusing.
