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
Oulton Park Raises £754 for charity
Oulton Park care centre near to Lowestoft recently presented Alzheimer’s Society with a cheque for £754 to help support those living with dementia in the local community. The care home raised this by completing a ‘Memory Walk’ of over three miles – residents, staff and volunteers took part in the walk, all to raise money for this great cause.
The care home welcomed Valerie and Alice from Alzheimer’s Society to the home for the cheque presentation and for a tour of the Memory Lane Community.
Jackie Tayler, General Manager at Oulton Park, said: “We are always keen to show as much support as we can to local charities. Alzheimer’s Society support so many local families and also do a brilliant job of raising awareness about Dementia so that more people are understanding of what it is like to live with Dementia.”
