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.

What have we been up to?

We've been keeping ourselves very busy recently!

Residents have been enjoying playing bingo, flower arranging, baking cakes and keeping cool in the garden. Afternoon tea is as popular as ever, and is served up on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. We recently celebrated cupcake day to raise money the Alzheimer's Society. All this and much more!
