Meet our Activities Coordinator, Joey Parkin
Joey is our activities co-ordinator and joined the team in 2019. She brings great enthusiasm and spark to Tennyson Wharf. Joey and her team are delivering an amazing, vibrant activities programme to cater to all tastes and abilities. It is their passion to ensure that residents, family, friends are left happy and content and very much looking forward to the next activity!
Activities at our home
Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.
Life at Tennyson Wharf Care Home
Residents at Tennyson Wharf enjoyed making some Halloween treats for one another.
At Tennyson Wharf, we have introduced a Magic Table offering opportunities for those living with dementia to increase physical and social interactions and, most of all, have fun. The Magic Table is an interactive light projector designed to support residents living with dementia and is proven to help staff promote stimulation through specialised games. The colourful light projections respond to hand and arm movements, enabling residents to play with the light itself, increasing both movement and stimulation.
Raising a Glass
Residents at Tennyson Wharf raised a glass to say thank you to Morrison's for their kind donations for World Food Day. There were plenty of nibbles and champagne for all.
Community Engagement at Morrison's
A big thank you to Morrison's in Lincoln, who kindly allowed Tennyson Wharf to hand out goody bags to their customers. They also donated a nice hamper to us which was much appreciated. Community engagement at its best!
101 year old Beatrice enjoyed her weekly exercise class at Tennyson Wharf. A great way to help stimulate the mind and body.
National Grandparents Day
While we honor our grandparents every day, grandchildrren of our residents sent in photos of themselves. A token gesture during tough times to appreciate all the joy and wisdom that grandparents bring to our lives.
Knit and Natter
Knit and Natter returns to Tennyson Wharf every other Sunday between 2pm and 4pm in the Cafe area. A lovely time residents spend together over a cup of tea and slice of cake.
Scrabble Club returns to Tennyson Wharf every alternate Monday from 2:30pm in the gentleman's lounge.
Film club is back at Tennyson Wharf on Tuesday afternoons from 2.30pm and Saturday afternoons 2.30pm. Big screen, popcorn and a great golden oldie is always well received by our residents.
