Meet our Activities Coordinator, Tracy Harrison-Tarr
Tracy is our new Head of Activities here at Wimborne. Tracy started at Wimborne as a carer and then worked alongside Lynn, our previous Head of Activities, who has now retired.
Tracy works hard ensuring that residents stay active and enjoy all the activities at the home, and is excited by her position. She has lots of new ideas to bring to the residents at Wimborne.
Tracy and her team look forward to providing a selection of events and new clubs for the residents to participate in and enjoy.
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.
Life at Wimborne Care Home
Residents had a great time enjoying a game of Matt Golf. This is a regular competition that residents thoroughly enjoy and get very competitive over.
They take turns throwing bean bags at the golf targets and whoever get the highest score is the winner. The winner is given a special chocolate treat and, most importantly, gets to keep the winner’s trophy cup.
Mums in the home were thoroughly spoilt, with lots of lovely flowers delivered to them.
A special afternoon tea was then arranged for them with white linen cloths, handmade decorative tulips and plenty of tea and cakes. Even the gentleman joined in to celebrate their mums.
St Patrick's Day
Residents joined in with fun and games with some dressing up too, and were joined by Adele, Wimborne’s dog, who wore a St Patrick's frock and visited the residents, which brought many smiles.
Sharing the Love
With a Valentine's like no other, Wimborne wanted to join in the community spirit of Hearts for Hayling. Our residents decorated hearts to show their love and appreciation to friends, family and key workers during the pandemic. Once decorated, we proudly displayed the hearts for everyone to see the love we wished to share.
Here at Wimborne, we have welcomed two empathy dolls for our residents. These have been proven to help release anxiety within individuals with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Our residents thoroughly enjoy interacting with our empathy dolls, which we have called Anna and Bill.
Bundle of Joy
Meet the new member here at Wimborne: Adele. In such a short space of time, Adele has already brought so much joy to both the residents and staff.
With weekly visits, her bubbly, young spirit has been providing so much happiness and memories for each resident she sees.
Soon to complete her PAT training, she will become the Wimborne dog, continuing to share her happiness and love with everyone at the home.
