Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sandra Baker

Sandra is our Activities & Marketing Manager here at Wood Grange. She joined the company in 2001, spending two years as a Carer and then moving into the activities department, where her passion became very apparent. Sandra was named as the 'Activities Coordinator of the Year' at the 2009 Barchester Care Awards.

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.

A Bit of DIY

Resident, Ann, chose her own décor for her room, complete with butterflies, bringing the outdoors in, which she loves so much.

Congratulations to Head Chef, Stephen Allwood, who was named as our Employee of the Month for March. Stephen was nominated because he works extra hard, never complains and for making it to work during severe weather, despite living miles away.

March at Wood Grange

Snow isn't just for the young ones; as you can see, residents and staff had lots of fun when 'the Beast from the East' arrived.

Resident, Fred, an expert on gardening, really enjoyed choosing his own plants from the local garden centre and then planting them.

The recent monthly theme day was ‘sport’. Residents and visitors enjoyed a lovely meal, which raised money for our latest charity, the Multiple System Atrophy Trust. It was nominated by visitors and residents due to one of our regular visitor’s husband sadly passing away from this illness.

Life at Wood Grange

We've been keeping busy here at Wood Grange!

Residents have been designing and making their own bracelets, have enjoyed days out at Hammerton Zoo and have been playing Scrabble weekly. They've also been keeping busy with flower arranging sessions and enjoying visits from the local Busy Bees Nursery, who visit us twice a month to spend time with residents. It was love at first sight as well, when we received a visit from some Shetland ponies.
