Meet our Activities Coordinator, Rianna Creek
I started in November 2019 and love making everyone smile! I have a lot of experience within the events industry and have worked internationally as part of events and activities. I am also a trained singer and dancer with a backing in exercise classes, so our residents will never be bored.
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 Tixover House Care Home
The local school children made some decorations for our trees and a puzzle book. We also received a letter and Christmas card from them.
Tixover House decided they wanted to add a bit of colour into their reception area. The residents were inspired whilst out on a walk and decided to make a floral display. We collected the leaves, pressed and dried them and then arranged them in a beautiful display. It now takes pride and place on our reception, welcoming in the autumn.
Tixover House is well into their harvest celebrations! We have been learning all about the harvest, as well as creating crafts and displays.
We recently held a 'scarecrow day'; all of the staff dressed in their finest scarecrow costumes and straw hats! We set to creating Tixover Hous's’ very own scarecrow, who Eileen named Jack!
It was a wonderful sensory experience for everyone involved. We are continuing our celebrations and soon will be dropping off lots of donations to the Stamford Food Bank.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Tixover House has been busy baking and creating lots of tasty treats for their ‘Macmillan Coffee Morning.’ Residents followed recipes and made wonderful chocolate fudge full with lots of different flavours. All residents were very keen and happy to raise lots of money for such a wonderful cause!
Residents at Tixover House have been desperate to go to the beach ever since the lovely hot weather started. Unable to do this, our activities coordinator came up with the next best thing, she brought the beach to them! With sand brought in and paddling pools our residents enjoyed a wonderful day in the sunshine.
They were spoilt with sweets and treats and even had a freezer full of ice creams donated kindly from Morrison’s. It was a superb day and was such an amazing sensory experience really boosting our residents spirits
Farewell at Tixover House
On Friday 31st Tixover House said a very bittersweet goodbye to their wonderful administrator Denise. Denise has been with the company for 14 years and has been a support and help for so many Staff, residents and relatives. We are very sad to see her go however wish her all the best of her retirement plans.
