Meet our Activities Coordinator, Stacey Davies

Stacey has been with Southerndown since 2013.

There is always something happening here and its never dull. We have our own choir and often invite the schools singing clubs and professional choir groups to join us. Peter and Winston are our pet Rabbits and provide many adventures for us, particularly when they escape. We have gardening groups, trips out in the mini bus, quiz days and art therapy amongst the many things we enjoy to do.

I get so much pleasure seeing the residents happy and staff joining in with them.

Activities at Southerndown

Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.

Come and join us at our Open Day

Reminiscence Session

Southerndown recently enjoyed a very interesting visit from the soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum, who joined us for a morning reminiscence session. Residents loved looking at and wearing memorabilia from WW1 and WW2, especially the helmets and medals.

Knitted Poppy Dress

We have all been busy knitting poppies in preparation for Remembrance Day. Residents, staff, loved ones and members of our local community have really enjoyed making them.

Feeling Floral

We have recently had a visit from the local RAF, who helped us to make some plastic poppies for our outdoor display.

We all had such a fun arts and crafts day, and having the RAF here with us made it extra special.

I think we can all agree the finished 100 poppies look amazing, and what a fitting way to mark the centenary.
