Activities at Werrington Lodge
Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their 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.
Hello, my name is Eleanor and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Werrington Lodge. For the past 4 years I have also been caring for my Nan and therefore fully understand the importance of having a good support system, a healthy social life and living life to the fullest every day.
Making sure that our residents have things to do that they really enjoy doing is something that I hold very close to my heart. It is so important to make sure that they are happy and enjoy all of the activities and events that we host for them.
I am a fun and bubbly individual that enjoys putting a smile on everyone’s face. My aim is to ensure that all of our residents have an equal opportunity to explore new interests and continue to do the things they loved before they joined our family.
A lot of our residents also enjoy our special trips out on our Mini Bus as we create new and special memories together at Werrington Lodge.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies
Life at Werrington Lodge Care Home
First day of our Gardening Club
Today we started our Gardening club, we planted flowers, potatoes, herbs and sunflower seeds. Hopefully when everything starts to grow we will have fresh items that the kitchen can use for our meals and for out cooking class which takes place on a Thursday afternoon. We are also going to be having a sunflower competition to see who can grow the tallest sunflower, so stay tuned to find out the results!
ZooLab visited Werrington with exotic pets
Chris from ZooLab visited us today with some of his amazing exotic animals. As you can see from the photos we were all very excited and intrigued to find out more about the animals that visited. We had a snake, a giant gecko, a rat and, a tarantula.. ekk!!”
Baking Club - Shortbread Day!
We have had a fantastic start to the New Year here at Werrington Lodge and just look at what we made today!
Our Chef Team helped prep the mixture but our residents really got their hands stuck in and enjoyed making Shortbread of all shapes and sizes. Needless to say we sure had lots of fun!
Happy New Year and Peter Pan
Happy New Year to all our loved ones! We hope that you all have a blessed and happy 2023! A trip to see the Peter Pan Pantomime sure was a great way to end the year - it was so magical for us all!
Merry Christmas from our family to yours. We hope your Christmas was as magical as ours!
On Friday we had our nails done ready for Christmas and of course our weekly pub trip. Thank you to the Bluebell Inn team for always being so accommodating!
Christmas Eve, we had a feast and a glass or two whilst watching White Christmas. And on Christmas Day we had our families join us for a home-made Christmas dinner (which was gorgeous) thank you Sharon. And a little bit of Christmas karaoke to end the day!
Minibus Trip to Waterside
Some of our residents here at Werrington Lodge had a little outing on our home Minibus to the Waterside Garden Centre - and my goodness it was beautifully decorated! We even met Santa and to finish the trip off we had a lovely Hot drink and a Mince Pie. Delicious!
