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.
Life at Westwood House Care Home
Andrew visited Westwood House this afternoon and serenaded our residents with his truly wonderful voice. This music was thoroughly enjoyed by residents and relatives alike. After the entertainment, cup cakes and cookies were also enjoyed.
Great entertainment was enjoyed by all of our residents!
During our staff Christmas party, we celebrated June McCrae's Employee of the Month award, and 2 other member of staff—Abena Asiama & Calie Jones—were congratulated for the 10th year at Barchester.
Marzipan Petit Fours
Residents enjoyed the company of a special guest, Robert Dykes, who visited the home recently. Together they created delicious Marzipan Petit Fours, which everyone enjoyed.
Professional Healthcare Appreciation Day
Dr Amanda Squires and her colleague Nicola Cockett both attended our Professional Healthcare Appreciation Day and loved their goody bags.
