Meet our Activities Coordinator, Julie Elguennouni
My name is Julie and I have been working here at Wimbledon Beaumont for more than 8 years. I was promoted from Housekeeper to Care Assistant then to Activities Coordinator.
I am passionate about my job and love my role as Activities Assistant. I also love gardening and singing; I am creative and create a lot of activities programmes around sensory activities, flower arranging and exercise sessions.
Activities at Wimbledon Beaumont
Our team of activities staff and volunteers are constantly striving to improve the lives of our residents. This includes the quality of our regular entertainers, the new PAT dog and cat visits, the new singing entertainment in residents bedrooms and the personalised visits by volunteers. We also encourage relatives and friends to join in with activities and trips out whenever they can.
As the festive season begins, the team at Wimbledon Beaumont would like to encourage you to join them to take part in our varied activities and regular trips out.
Life at Wimbledon Beaumont Care Community
A Royal Celebration
On Saturday June 13th, the Queen will celebrate her second, and official, birthday. But there was an extra incentive to join in the festivities at Wimbledon Beaumont, as residents were asked to design a birthday card in honour of Her Majesty’s birthday.
The winning card design was then specially made into a beautiful card and sent by Royal Mail to be opened by the Queen on her special day.
Residents were also treated to a special birthday tea party, with a royal theme, prepared by the hospitality team. The Queen’s birthday was marked with a small celebration at Windsor Castle, where the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are staying in isolation. Residents tuned in to watch a Royal Salute from the military, lead by The Welsh Guard and massed Bands of the Household Division, which replaced the Trooping the Colour after it was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Donations from Merton Aid
Look we have some very happy carers and nurses. Our staff have received gifts from Merton Aid to honour them for their recent work. Thank you Merton Aid!
A Birthday card for the Queen
The residents and staff set about writing a Birthday card for the Queen. It was such an enjoyable activity for our residents and a mark of how popular our Queen is with all age groups.
Celebrating the Queens Birthday
Our fabulous team of Chefs created this beautiful cake for the Queens Birthday Celebrations. It looked fantastic and tasted delicious too.
Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth 11 from all at Wimbledon Beaumont.
