Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jackie Pratley
I have recently changed my role to Activities Coordinator and its one I enjoy very much, I am happy to spend time with each resident and enhancing their day and time here. I get great feedback for my dancing and singing skills. I’m never one to turn down the chance to entertain others.
Activities at Tandridge Heights
Our qualified and dedicated activities staff plan and implement all activities within the home. We try our best to arrange activities that reflect our residents 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. We try to keep our residents active and happy.
Our activities include trips to garden centres, pubs, the cinema or the local theatre. We have many fun games like carpet bowls, Play Your Cards Right or armchair exercises. There are many musical events, singalongs, garden parties and tea parties for everyone to enjoy as well!
Life at our home
Our fabulous activities coordinators, carers and residents had a great karaoke afternoon with plenty of dancing and singing. A few budding stars in the mix. Everyone got into the dancing spirit and even dressed up for the occasion
Classic Car Club
We opened our doors to the classic car community and invited everyone to enjoy a bacon sandwich and showcase their stunning vehicles. Everyone had a great time with a few having a little test drive, we can’t wait to welcome them back again.
Dementia Friendly Community
Tandridge has worked tirelessly with staff and the local community to make the home and Oxted a dementia friendly community. Everyone got involved and we did some fun workshops at the home and even got the little ones involved.
We are now proudly displaying our dementia sticker received by the local council.
Music & Exercise
A fabulous afternoon of music and exercises with Angela, she got quite a crowd and everyone slept well that night.
Knit & Natter
A group of our lovely residents have started their own Knit & Natter group. It is proving to be really popular with all our residents and they are now busy making little bonnets for the Local Premature baby unit.
Fizz & Chips
Residents enjoying sitting town to some fizz and fish & chips every Friday. Please feel free to join us and bring your friends, or even make some new ones. These lovely ladies will always be here!
