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.

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 Windmill Manor Care Home

Barchester Bear's "Bopathon!"

We don't need an excuse to dance at Windmill Manor, but we were really glad to join a fund raising afternoon for the recent Dementia Awareness week and danced non stop for 60 minutes!

Tea at the Manor

“Tea at The Manor” Last Friday of every month, book to save disappointment. The sun was shining down on Windmill Manor as we enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment by Nick Brown and a ritz style tea prepared by our chefs. We hope our guests had a wonderful afternoon and hope to see you on Friday 24th June.

Jubilee Plate Making

Plate Painting for the Queens Jubilee. The residents of Windmill Manor decided to opt for traditional red white and blue over purple and silver for our plate painting. We had a great discussion about the 75years Queen Elizabeth 11 has reigned and she was now 96 years old. We ended our activity discussing what we were doing at the time of her coronation and a good old sing song including the National Anthem.

Chelsea Flower Show

Our very own stamp on the Chelsea Flower show. We were busy creating a flower collage today. Our residents enjoyed choosing their preferred colours and textures to add a personal touch to our design.

Memory Cafe

Windmill Manor's fortnightly Memory Cafe was a huge success today with several local folk living with dementia and their "better" halves enjoying a coffee, cake, some time together and a cuddle with Baxter, James' wonderful furry friend! The next one is on Tuesday 7th at 11.00am with a "Pimms" making and tasting session!

A trip out!

A lovely morning spent at Knights Garden Centre. Our first minibus outing in a long while, had an excellent result. Keen gardeners enjoyed looking at the plants, reminiscing about their own greenhouses and what fruit and vegetables they grew. Our ladies were absorbed in an array of colour and the scent from different flowering plants. No better way to end the trip than a delicious cup of coffee and generous slice of cake before returning home.
