Meet our Activities Coordinator, Anna Foster & Danielle Hall

Our names are Anna and Danielle and we are the Activities Coordinators here at Woodhorn Park. We both have a background in care and therefore are delighted to take on these positions.

We recognise individual strengths and abilities of residents and implement a meaningful and therapeutic person-centred activity programme. Our aim is to ensure none of the residents become marginalised, ensuring inclusion for everyone within Woodhorn Park. A resident/relative meeting is scheduled on a monthly basis and posters are displayed throughout the home, so we look forward to seeing you soon

Activities at Woodhorn Park

Activities make up the most important part of all our days at Woodhorn park, so we ensure a variety of social events are available that reflect the interests of all the people we support. In our Memory Lane community, we have group conversations and regularly reminiscence about past experiences, which is something that people living with dementia really enjoy. Many residents love gardening, baking, outings, pet care and gentle exercise, which we provide, along with many other wholesome activities, as it is essential that life at Woodhorn Park is fun and active.

Goodbye & Happy Birthday

Some happy beginnings and sad endings occurred at Woodhorn Park recently. We would like to wish a huge congratulations to our Apprentice Care Assistant, Jordan, who recently celebrated her 18th birthday.

It is with great sadness to say that, on Jordan’s special day, the team also said a fond farewell to Housekeeper, Marlene, who worked at Woodhorn Park for 17 years. We all wished her a happy retirement!

Friendship Day

Woodhorn Park residents celebrated ‘Friendship Day’ with a garden party, and invited residents from our sister home, Station Court, and Mayoress, Marjorie Chambers.

No matter who we are or where we are, it is easy to become isolated in a crowd and, here at Woodhorn Park, we encourage friendships and support relationships.

The weather was kind to us in our special day, and people enjoyed a game of croquet with the lovely Mayoress. Residents from Woodhorn Park and Station Court enjoyed a glass of fizz whilst reminiscing about the past.

Thanks to the continuing glorious weather, residents decided to revisit a local beauty spot close Plessey Woods. We packed up our picnic baskets ladened with traditional sandwiches cake and squash, and off we ventured.

For the Love of Music

The residents of Woodhorn Park thoroughly enjoy all things musical! Local acoustic band, Fool's Gold, visited us on 9th August and encouraged us to join in with their performance. Irene thoroughly enjoyed "kicking her heels".

Active Minds

Four residents enjoyed a local community event organised by Mind Active. The weather was a little overcast, however, it did not spoil the day. Pat, Dennis, Jackie and Nesta all tucked into the picnic, which was followed up with ice cream in our local Hirst Park.
