Meet our Activities Coordinator, Eve Parsons

Eve is our Activities Coordinator who plans and provides the activities for the residents. We hold regular resident meetings and take on board all comments and suggestions. We will be planning some trips over the coming months and will keep you all up-to-date with our events.

Activities at Westwood House

As Activity Coordinator at Westwood House I am fully committed to organising activities for all of the residents. This includes activities within the home such as reminiscence sessions, and planning events such as the Summer and Christmas parties. We have also provided some very successful trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and have monthly visits from entertainers and musicians. We are always encouraging local schools to get involved and have recently managed to get a local charity 'Spare tyre' working with us very successfully.

It is important to me 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. 

Come and join us at our Open Day

Meet our dedicated team on Saturday 6th April, who can answer any questions you may have about our home.

Creative Minds

On 1st March we had a visit form David from ‘Creative Minds’, who showed residents how to paint beautiful flowers, and the finished result were then laminated and are now hanging in their bedrooms. This was David’s second visit and the residents really enjoyed it, particularly those who already have great artistic expertise.

Reminiscence Café

We have recently opened our Reminiscence Café and invited Elaine Battersby, the daughter of resident, Betty, who happily cut the ribbon for us.

Robert, our Host, prepared lovely salmon sandwiches and fresh hot scones with jam and cream and strawberries, which were enjoyed by our visitors.

The Café is open every Tuesday afternoon and we encourage everyone to stop by!

Chinese New Year

On Tuesday 5th February, we celebrated Chinese New Year at Westwood House with a special menu comprising prawn stir-fry with noodles and sweet and sour chicken. One of our residents, Ramon, also wrote these greetings out for us in traditional style, and we were able to display them in our dining room.
