Meet our Activities Coordinator, Activities Team

Nicola, Penny and Rose make up the Activities Team who work across the home keeping the residents active and involved. The girls do a great job and were all Carers before they took the leap to activities. Due to the ages of the residents who live in Park View, ensuring age appropriate activities for the residents is highly important. The home is a lively and vibrant place to live but the girls also make sure the residents get time in the community, going to Bingo, the Pub, out for lunch, to the shops, the cinema and take requests!

Activities at our home

Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

Life at our home

What we got up to during May

It has been an action packed month at Park View. We started off by celebrating V.E Day with a morning of making peppermint creams.

The activities team got in full spirit by dressing up in 1940s wear to match the entertainment we had. We managed to find a 1940s tribute act by the name of Debbie, and she sang loads of classic songs. To say that we had a good time would be an understatement. 

Next on the agenda was getting our garden ready for Care Home Open Day. We have been taking a lot of time to weed and repaint the wooden gazebo in one of our gardens. Residents have been helping us with this process and some have just been basking in the sun. I think we all know what we would prefer to be doing!

The parachute also came out to play this month and, once again, it was a big hit; residents like to try and keep the ball off of the floor.
