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.

1st Birthday Party
Cylina and her son Amin attend regularly our Mother & Baby sessions, which happen every Friday and the home. They kindly asked to use our lovely garden for Amin's 1st birthday party. Our residents were invited to the party and all enjoyed themselves, and had wonderful day.
Cake for the Centenarian
Our Host, Robert Dykes, made resident, Joan, this delicious cake in recognition of her 100th birthday. Happy birthday, Joan!
