Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sherry Owen
Hi, my name is Sherry, and I have managed the activities team since July 2015. I am very passionate about my role and encourage each residents to join in with activities as much as possible. We provide a varied programme to ensure that the needs of each individual are met.
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 Windmill Manor Care Home
Here at Windmill Manor, we are currently cruising around the world. Our first stop was Romania; the locals were very friendly, sharing their local cuisine, which was followed by dancing and singing in traditional dress. We had an enjoyable time visiting Romania.
Working Together at Windmill Manor is an important part of life within our home. This brings a fulfilling and meaningful experience with a satisfying result to our residents' lives.
Windmill Manor reaped and sowed to produce our amazing Harvest Festival table. Our chefs and residents got to work creating inspirational designs out of salt dough, along with local and home grown vegetables.
Virtual Dog Show
Residents at Windmill Manor enjoyed choosing their favourite photos to pick first, second and third place for the 'Handsome Hound' and 'Prettiest Pooch' catefories in our virtual dog competition.
We had a great response, with a total of 20 dogs entered by friends, family, staff and local community. Our residents and staff have agreed that dogs are 'man’s best friends in countless way: they protect our homes, help lead the blind, and acted heroically in times of war.
Continuing Community Links
Staff at Windmill Manor recently organised a Disney princess photoshoot as a big thank you too all our pen pals, who have sent letters, pictures and a few scribbles to our residents. Residents at the home particularly liked the beautiful dresses, and engaging with the princesses.
Amanda, Windmill Manors's General Manager likes to make sure they are at the heart of the community. Getting ready to deliver goody bags and sweet treats to all our friends old and new.
