Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jill Harris & Wilma Hill
We are passionate about working with our residents and making their days fulfilled and happy. We have both worked with the elderly in previous roles and love coming up with ideas for activities and events and enjoy every day we come to work. We love to hear singing, laughter and see the residents learning new skills and sharing their stories with us.
Activities at The Spires
Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.
Life at The Spires Care Home
Reuniting Loved Ones
Residents have been celebrating being able to go out on short trips with their designated visitors.
Margaret was the first resident to go out and was thrilled to be going out to a cafe for a slice of cake and a cup of tea with her daughter, Julia, granddaughter, Fiona and great granddaughter, Orla.
We are all so pleased at this step back towards normality!
Out & About... Finally
Staff and residents at The Spires were celebrating being able to go on short excursions again as lockdown restrictions ease across the country. Residents are now able to go on a short trip to outdoor spaces without having to isolate on their return.
Residents from The Spires enjoyed a long-awaited trip to Lichfield Cathedral, where they were able to enjoy a walk and a tour of the historic architecture.
World Health Day
Our residents have celebrated World Health Day. As we age, it is so important to maintain our health and keep active.
Here at The Spires, we are passionate about keeping active so we thought this was a great opportunity to enjoy a seated exercise and movement to music class.
We reminisced about our past sporting exploits whilst enjoying fresh fruit platter and mocktails.
We all had such a fabulous Easter. The Easter Bunny visited The Spires and all our residents enjoyed Easter eggs.
As part of the lead up to Easter, our residents spent some time flexing our creative muscles and making Easter bonnets and Easter biscuits.
We also hid some Easter eggs in our local area for our local community to enjoy.
101st Birthday celebrations
Happy 101st Birthday to Doreen, it was her 2nd Birthday in lockdown, she took it all in her stride and enjoyed being treated like Queen for the day! What a special lady.
Indoor Visits Bring Joy
Mother's day was a perfect day to start our Indoor Visits by designated family members. How wonderful it is to see our residents happily holding hands with their loved ones.
