Activities at The Warren Care Home

Here at The Warren, our activities team are always very busy thinking of new ways to keep residents active, both physically and mentally. We have regular trips out in the minibus, both locally and further a field, including the London Eye and the Thames River Trip), at least once a week during the summer months. We also enjoy visits from PAT dogs and have professional exercise sessions and live entertainment, which are always popular.

Kirstie Tifrani

Activities Coordinator

My name is Kirstie and I am lucky enough to be the Activities Coordinator here at The Warren.

I have many years of experience working in care homes in Activities and leisure and lifestyle roles.

I love being part of the Alice Grange team and supporting our residents to live their best lives with fun, interesting, and varied activities available every week. I always feel that the importance of residents' input into our weekly planner is important giving all residents equal opportunity to explore new interests as well as keeping up with previous interests and hobbies.

Gentleman’s Games Club

Gentleman’s Club started off well with Billiards, Air Hockey, Table Football and Shut the box were played.  One residents son joined in and played along with his Dad, they had a great Father and Son afternoon.   Next time we will take them to the pub for a pint too maybe.

PAT Dog and Pancakes

Had a flipping good day, not only was it Shrove Tuesday but we were visited by our PAT Dog Daisy and her owner Len.  Her visits are invaluable and she brings so much joy to the residents.  We then looked pancakes to order after lunch, they went down a treat.

Love is in the air for Valentine’s Day

We made some amazing decorations for Valentine’s Day.  We made Vintage Hearts and gave them to other residents to hang in their room.

They were so easy to make and looked stunning and the ladies loved going through the vintage magazines and papers looking at all the old adverts too.

Burns Night!!

Today we celebrated #burnsnight2024 . We decorated the dining room and tables, played Scottish songs and our chef Kevin made the most delicious traditional Scottish meal. With Cock a leekie soup, Haggis, neeps and tatties, topped with a whisky cream sauce. For dessert a cranachan which was nothing short of moreish and amazing.

International Flower Day

We celebrated International Flower day on Friday. What better way to mark it than arranging flowers for the home.

The ladies started by renewing the bud vases in the dining room then moved onto vases of flowers around the home.

They look absolutely beautiful and they make the home smell amazing too.
