Meet our Activities Coordinator, Helena Monger

Hi, my name is Helena 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 wellbeing, 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 our home

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day brings our nation together in respect and admiration of all our heroes who fought for our country. Many residents themselves have memories of their families who were involved and, as such, we thrive to commemorate through not only reminiscence, but also poetry and craft work.

Halloween

Pumpkin carving, fancy dress and trick or treating all brought back fond memories of our childhood. We love celebrating Halloween at The Wingfield and a whole array of activities were enjoyed by residents leading up to and during Halloween. They also enjoyed giving sweets to our spooky little trick or treaters!

Denim4Dementia

The Denim4Dementia event was created by Alzheimer's Support in order to raise awareness for dementia and raise funds for the admirable work that they do. The Wingfield naturally took part in this event, with staff members and relatives dressed in denim as a symbol of support.

Balloons & Magic

Lots of fun was had during the 'Balloons & Magic' performance with Chris. Residents were able to choose what creations they would like made. From flowers and planes to dogs and crowns, we were left in awe of Chris’ talent! We look forward to welcoming him back soon.

Flower Arranging

We all enjoy flower arranging at The Wingfield and the bright autumn colours inspired our creations this month. Everyone who took part delicately chose which flowers they would like to arrange and together created three different floral displays.

Afternoon Dancing

Residents enjoyed dancing the day away with Mike Freke and his dance partners at Memory Lane. From the foxtrot to the quickstep, residents were delighted to not only admire Mike and his dance partner's moves, but also to get involved with learning the moves themselves. The dancing session came to an end with a waltz and afternoon tea. We look forward to welcoming them back in November.
