Meet our Activities Coordinator, Kei Leus
Hi, my name is Kei and I’m the Activities Coordinator here at The Wingfield. My role is to provide stimulating and motivational activities for residents. Getting to know those we support and creating tailored activities programmes for them is extremely rewarding. We focus on maximising everyone’s well being, independence and social engagement, as well as providing varied activities to suit all.
Activities at Wingfield Care Home
Here at The Wingfield our activities team provide a varied and interesting range of activities for all residents. We are registered with the National Activity Providers Association (NAPA) and we take pride in delivering activities that will enhance residents lives and bring happiness and a sense of purpose. Our cooking activities are very popular, as well as the regular book clubs, coffee mornings, skittle matches and bus trips. We provide one to one support for those who are unable to attend activities and we have tea dances, musicians, quizzes, music and movement, as well as our giant scrabble board! But most importantly we have fun! Relatives are always welcome and there is always much laughter and smiling faces during our activities. We take pride in what we do and we continually strive to enhance residents lives through meaningful activity.
Life at The Wingfield Care Home
Wear it Pink
Today we wore it pink! In honour of Breast Cancer Research. Staff and residents decorated the home and wore something pink. Everyone had a fabulous afternoon filled with fun laughter and we also raised some money for their much needed research.
Harvest Festival Bread Making
With the Harvest Festival season upon us, we always give thanks for the harvest and the food that has been brought in and stored for the winter months ahead. Our residents have an amazing time decorating our Harvest table and baking bread rolls for everyone to share.
Community Links for Grandparents Day
Gail the General Manager recently hand delivered lots of colour your own cards to the local school and nursery. This was to help them celebrate Grandparents day. We understand how difficult things are at the moment and that some of these children are unable to visit older loved ones at the moment. The children had great fun in colouring them in and hopefully brightening someone's day.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
The Wingfield hosted fun day and a range of activities to raise money for Macmillan's World Biggest Coffee Morning, from guessing the weight of the cake, to how many teabags in the jar and our residents helped bake lovely cake's to support the event. We all enjoyed the coffee morning and we raised £40.00 that has been donated to Macmillan.
Virtual Day Trips
Every week we ask the residents where they would like to visit. Just because we cant get out at the moment that doesn't stop us bring the world to them. This week they requested the beach. So with sand in our toes and ball games for everyone what an adventure we had. No day at the beach is complete with traditional fish and chips all served to us by our local chip shop. Where will we go next.
Employees work harder and smarter, and stick around longer. We as employers love to show our team that they are appreciated & valued. It's time to reward them with their outstanding effort they made during this period. Well done everyone. The team had a great day celebrating.
