Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jenna Davey
Jenna is at the centre of all the activities here at Wimborne Care Home. We provide an interesting and varied activities schedule and ensure that there is something for everyone. Our team is passionate about the importance of activities and will go that extra mile just for a smile or a raised eyebrow, whether it's one-to-one time or a group session, inside or out, fun is had by all.
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 Wimborne Care Home
Residents and the children from Megham Infant School have been collaborating together in a Pen Pal scheme, sending letters to each other. The residents loved the pictures received from the children at Christmas and we sent replies back this week to the children to thank them
We all enjoyed our Christmas Day, starting with opening our presents with Santa, followed by a lovely Christmas lunch, we congregated in the lounge for some sherry and minced pies whilst watching the Queens speech. We hope you enjoyed your day as much as we did!
Community Christmas carol concert
Residents went to visit the children at Megham Junior School to watch their community Christmas carol singing. We enjoyed listening to the children singing and dancing and also enjoyed some tea, coffee and mince pies. Thank you for having us, we can't wait to see you all next week for more carol singing when you come to see us at Wimborne Care Home.
Christmas Quiz Night!
This evening residents enjoyed a Wimborne Pub Christmas Quiz, we had our head maintenance, Gary hosting the quiz with his Santa's hat on. The residents enjoyed the evening and singing Christmas songs at the end
Residents made their own Christingles using all sorts of festive decorations - they looked very pretty around the home
We started the Christmas month by having a festive photoshoot with residents and staff. The photoshoot of each resident will be sent to their families in Christmas cards
