Meet our Activities Coordinator, Georgia White
I am really excited to be on board at Tandridge Heights. I am already having lots of fun with our lovely residents and planning lots more. I am a recent graduate in Musical Theatre so as you can imagine I have a tonne of energy to bring to our home.
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 Tandridge Heights Care Home
Residents spent an enjoyable afternoon, sipping wine and decorating cupcakes. There was a competition for the best decorated cake, however before judging could commence most of the cakes had been eaten.
We spent an afternoon learning about the process of making pottery, and were then lucky enough to have a go ourselves and then decorate it all too.
True Community Spirit
We have teamed up with lots of members of the community and a local Charity, so we can lend a hand when needed. This week we all got together and helped match socks. They will then be sent away to help those less fortunate than us. We are looking forward to our next project.
Tandridge Heights welcomes a Toddler group, Thelma’s playgroup, every Monday. Team members and residents have found that intergenerational meetings very beneficial for both toddlers and residents.
The home has grown connections with a local charity ‘Their Voice’, where the residents get a chance to volunteer doing various activities, such as, clothes donations and preparing hospital bags for mothers and their newborns.
The volunteering activities become popular around the home, even Thelma’s Playgroup participate in donating clothing. Tandridge Heights focuses on residents' well-being and mental health throughout community engagement.
Flower arranging Masterclass
A fun interactive afternoon, being taught about the wonders of flowers, our residents made some beautiful displays that are now all around the home for everyone to enjoy.
Spreading some Valentines love.
We took to our local hospital, with bundles of valentines chocolates and goody bags. we wanted to spread some love to our amazing Doctors and Nurses, and also all the patients spending time away from home and their loved ones.
Continuing Life Enrichment
During this unprecedented time, we have a number of measures in place to ensure residents remain engaged, connected and socially active.
We know the importance of supporting our local community and hold monthly groups, specifically for those living with dementia or caring for a loved one.
Our PAT dog will be joining us every Thursday from 10:30 a.m. – everyone is welcome!
