Meet our Activities Coordinator, Ingrid Rodriguez

My role in the home is fundamental to ensuring that our residents enjoy a fulfilling quality of life. I strive to provide a stimulating, creative & varied range of activities & events in the home, which everyone can enjoy whether they prefer social group engagement or one to one interaction. I enjoy being creative & being involved in artistic projects and discussing with our residents the kind of activities they would like to enjoy. Both indoor and outdoor activities are offered to cater for all tastes as well as regular outings to local places of interest.

Our Darts Champions

Darts is a very popular game at Westgate House, so we held a tournament, where the highest scorers were given a medal. Rose, who used to be on a ladies darts team, won gold, Elini came second (it was her first ever game) and Ola came third.

Make May Purple

Residents, staff & visitors of Westgate House supported fellow care staff member, Anita Mbewe, with raising money for the Make May Purple Stroke Association appeal on behalf of her father, Isaac Mbewe, and all stroke survivors, by holding a 'Sip for Stroke' cake sale, which raised £245.72.

Isaac is a retired engineer who, after having worked hard all his life, indulged his passion for farming by relocating to a farm. Unfortunately, Isaac suffered multiple strokes in 2016, losing his ability to walk and talk. He faced many physical and emotional challenges, as he was unable to do all the things that he once was able to do for himself.

Isaac is a greatly loved and respected member of his family, who fully support him. Anita, his daughter, decided to raise money for Make May Purple for her father and all who live with the effects of having a stroke. General Manager, Frances Nri, was very happy to support the cause.
