Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Michelle Mitchell

I have been working at Shelburne Lodge for 3 years and thoroughly enjoy my role in the home.  I like to actively encourage residents to participate in all activities, stretching their boundaries and assisting them in achieving their full potential in whatever activity they choose to take part in.  We have a fun and friendly environment, relaxed and welcoming which encourages resident’s family and friends to join in whatever we are doing.

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!

Chinese New Year Celebrations

Life has been busy at Shelburne Lodge as we made preparations to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Residents created Chinese lanterns and painted zodiac signs that relate to their birth year. It’s amazing how many people are celebrating being born in the year of the dog! Residents had fun using chopsticks, sampling Chinese tea and watching a traditional Chinese lion dance. The fortune cookies were popular too!

Champagne Afternoon Cream Tea

We held a Champagne Afternoon Cream Tea on Friday 6th October to celebrate Barchester’s 25th Anniversary.  All residents and families were in good spirits and we also had visitors from a neighbouring elderly community who came along to enjoy the celebrations.  Champagne Enterprise provided the entertainment.  Residents were also entertained by staff and family members dancing and singing along and having fun.  It was a great afternoon with lots of laughter and a delicious chocolate fountain to go with the cream teas and champagne.

The King Comes to Shelburne

Residents were recently entertained by Elvis. They really enjoy his shows and are always pleased to see him – especially the ladies! They all sing along with him and shout out requests; there’s always lots of laughter when he’s around.

A Week at Shelburne Lodge

We have had a fun-packed few weeks. Residents have enjoyed the wonderful weather and have taken full advantage of the lovely garden, participating in activities outside in the sunshine, whilst being entertained by Nick the musician.

Gary 'Elvis' Roman has also been entertaining residents, who thoroughly enjoyed singing along to his songs and being serenaded.

Recently, Michael & Kirsty came along to the home to give a ballroom and Latin dance demonstration, which residents thought was great, and really enjoyed Kirsty's costume changes.
