Meet our Activities Coordinator, Kelly Moores
Hi, my name is Kelly Moores and I am one of the Activities Coordinators here at Westvale House.
I have been working in the care sector for the past 16 years carrying out different roles including carer, housekeeping and activities. I am passionate about what I do and always aim to fulfil every target I set myself. I am really pleased to join Westvale and to be working with an amazing team striving to enrich the lives of our residents.
I have my GNVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care and I am always looking to improve my knowledge with training and relevant courses.
Outside work I enjoy spending time with my family, dog walks and my young son most certainly keeps me on my toes.
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.
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 Westvale House Care Home
We enjoyed the annual Macmilan Coffee Morning which was a great success.
We had delicious homemade cakes courtesy of our head chef Chris we also had a Raffle.
We would like to say a huge Thank you to St Philips Church, our Residents, their families and staff who helped us to raise money for such a tremendous Charity. We have raised £95.81
At the beginning of the month our Residents and their families enjoyed Afternoon Tea at a local Pub.
Socialising is important for our Residents and staying connected with family and our local community. This provides a sense of belonging for boosting physical and mental health.
Remembering the Queen
During the National period of Mourning we ve spent time reminiscing and celebrating the memory and reign of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the ll.
Our hearts were heavy following the very sad news of Queen Elizabeth s passing but together we took time to reflect on the reign and extraordinary life of our beloved Queen.We held out own service of mourning to share memories and the Mayor of Warrington joined us .
We signed the Book of Condolences and also created a Memory Tree writing our fondest memories of our late Queen.These memories of her Majesty will be in our hearts forever.
Fun & Games
Fun and games in the garden always means a great time is had by all
We exercised almost without realising it when we played the Parachute game
We are thoroughly enjoying the September sunshine whilst we can.
Here at Westvale House we enjoy Craft sessions, this week we have tried our hand at the Nexus Playboard.
This was a new craft to us and for a lot of our residents but it certainly proved to be very popular and a lot of fun.
This kind of crafting has many benefits such as keeping our fine motor skills on point, testing our stamina and exercising our creative design side and all while keeping the mind and body calm and relaxed
Here at Westvale House we look forward to enjoying the very poplular weekly Baking Club.
We enjoyed a firm favourite this week, Rice Crispy Cakes!
Making old classics always promotes great conversations of the past and a good opportunity for reminiscing.
Please see here for the calendar of events that we are all looking forward to throughout October
