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.

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
Comic Relief fun
Residents and Staff all got involved and had lots of fun on Red Nose Day. Funny noses, silly jokes, music and laughter. All while raising money for a great cause. In the evening everyone settled down to watch the televised version too.
Mothers Day Celebrations
Residents had a lovely day celebrating. The day started with a daffodil delivery. Followed by a special three course lunch, prepared and served by the head chef. Then an afternoon of sweet treats, pots of tea and skype calls with loved ones.
Staff and residents fully vaccinated
All staff and residents at The Wingfield, are delighted to have received both doses of their Covid-19 vaccinations at the home with local GP surgery leading the vaccinations, after what has been a very challenging year for everyone we couldn't be happier. We finished the day with a celebration toast.
108th Birthday Celebrations
It was a great privilege to host and be part of Madge's 108th birthday. She received gifts, flowers and cards spanning across the country. She had a day like no other. After being interviewed by BBC Wiltshire, she was treated to her own personal Zoom concert by local group Muzical Entertainerz. She finished the day with a meal and a little glass of fizz.
Pancake Day Fun
We had some good old fashioned fun with on pancake day, we flipped, we dipped and we ate. There were some unusual creations that were made and the flipping competition bought out the competitive side to some too.
Celebrating Chinese New Year
This year we celebrated Chinese New Year by decorating the home, sharing a delicious oriental feast all prepared and served by our chef. We then made and gave traditional good luck charms and watched videos of dancing dragons and lions. Marion said " I always love learning about different cultures and traditions and the videos were fascinating to watch."
