Meet our Activities Coordinator, Andrea Pullinger
Hello, my name is Andrea and I am the Activities Co-ordinator here at Oulton Park Care Home. I have been working at Oulton Park since January 2017 and find my job really fulfilling and rewarding. I love finding new and exciting things for residents to enjoy. My door is always open to hear about new ideas or to speak about upcoming events and activities.
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.
Life at our home
Lowestoft in Bloom - Award Winners!
Two of our team of staff, Andrea and Gemma were delighted to attend the Lowestoft in Bloom awards on behalf of Oulton Park. We were even more delighted to bring home a Silver Award for our lovely gardens!! If you wish to come and see our gardens please come along - we would love to welcome you!
Staff, residents and their families from Oulton Park Care Centre took part in a sponsored walk to promote World Alzheimer’s day. They started the 7km route from Claremont Pier to Oulton Park Care Centre at 10.40am and arrived at 12.50pm where refreshments were served. Walkers, accompanied by a minibus from the Barchester Healthcare home, were sponsored and between them raised £632 with donations still coming in.

Residents at Oulton Park enjoyed some trips out to Pathways care farm this month. Our residents loved meeting some of the beautiful animals and learning more about farming life!
Residents, Relatives and friends of Oulton park were delighted to welcome in The Shanty Singers! The group performed a variety of 'sea-shanty' style songs which had our residents clapping along! Fun was had by everybody and we are looking forward to the groups next visit to the home.
