Meet our Activities Coordinator, David Alderman
David has been our Activities Coordinator for over five years. He is involved in the creation and coordination of all of our activities and events designed for residents, as well as organising shopping trips and other excursions out into the community and local area. Married with three grown-up kids, he now enjoys his spare time painting the beautiful countryside locally.
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
Cruise on the Canal
Residents recently enjoyed a cruise on the canal. They departed from the local marina on the Mary Sunley 2 which is a slow moving canal barge that allows everyone to take in the views across the beautiful Cheshire countryside. During the trip, refreshments were served and there was even a stop for ice cream as the sun was shining . Everyone had a great day out, one resident in particular thrilled with the day. The lady had never been on a barge before, so really enjoyed every minute of the trip. The trip was a great way for people to create memories and spend time together doing something a little different. Residents enjoy the wide range of activities the home provides to ensure their everyday live enrichment.
Prestbury Beaumont was definitely the place to be to share in a delightful summer garden party. Residents, families and many friends were able to enjoy Pimm's and canapes on the lawn. The jazz duo 'Strictly No Chasers', entertained everyon, adding sophistication and a great atmosphere to the event, playing a selection of popular songs. A wonderful day was enjoyed by all!
King's School Macclesfield
Children from the King‘s Pre-School have brought a ray of sunshine into the lives of the residents at Prestbury Beaumont Home. Inspired by the Channel 4 TV series ‘Old People’s Home for 4-year-olds’, a party of adorable three and four-year-olds from the Macclesfield's school have visited the care regularly throughout the year. David, Activities Coordinator said: “It’s been a truly remarkable experience for everyone. Both the children and our residents have taken to it like ducks to water. When the children come they know exactly where to go, who to see in which rooms and what they want to visit.” He added: “We have one resident that I had not heard laugh before, but when the children come you can hear the laughter coming out of his room. It’s been genuinely heart-warming and a very positive experience for both generations.
The Game Is On!
The reception class from King's School in Macclesfield paid us another visit and challenged us to several games of noughts and crosses. The competition was fierce!
Fun in the Sun
After making Easter bonnets, residents tried them out in the spring sunshine with a nice, cool drink. It made for a pleasant afternoon!
Spring has arrived at Prestbury Beaumont, along with a host of golden daffodils that are much-admired by a resident, who was so pleased to see them close up.
