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!

Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. This year, Shelburne Lodge hosted the Royal British Legion, who provided a presentation showing all the fantastic work the organisation does. The residents were also entertained by Fiona Harrison and enjoyed singing along to many of the old classic hits. In a final tribute, the residents made their own medals and these were displayed on the activities tree.

Best Friend Day

In celebration of Best Friend Day, the residents at Shelburne Lodge have been busy reminiscing about friends, past and present. In tribute to this special day, hearts were created and residents given the opportunity to remember a particular attribute of that person. They enjoyed placing these on our friendship tree and sharing these with staff, families and, of course, friends!

Birds of Prey

We were thrilled to welcome Falconry UK to Shelburne Lodge to celebrate our Open Day. Not only did they provide the opportunity for residents so see some wonderful birds, they also gave a very informative presentation on the their environment, habitat, adaptation and evolution. They provided plenty of opportunities for the residents to see the birds up close and to hold them. 

A range of different birds were brought in and residents had a wonderful day; it will definitely be remembered for a very long time!

Medical Detection Dog Visit

We were thrilled to welcome the medical detection team to Shelburne Lodge recently with their very well behaved dog, Elsa!  The residents enjoyed a very informative presentation, providing lots of information about how the trained dogs are able to detect serious, life-threatening illnesses. As a charity, they rely solely upon the public’s generosity and good will. We hope to assist with their fundraising with future events at the home.
