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.

Armistice Day

Both the residents and the team at Woodhorn Park wished to honour Armistice Day and be part of our local community. We decided to decorate our window to celebrate the centenary of the end of the First world War, in addition to remembering all of those who have fallen since that day.

We hope you are proud of our memories like we are.

Library Week

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark for taking time to visit us at Woodhorn Park. Mark is the chief librarian in Ashington and, as part of Library Week, he brought along reminiscence boxes for both residents and staff to view and discuss. Irene enjoyed looking through the books and discussing the ration books.

Memory Walk

Here at Woodhorn Park, we care passionately about ‘making a difference’ for residents, so we organised a Memory Walk for the Alzheimer’s Society.

We planned our route and walked for five miles with some of our ladies walking with us for a short while, before they called into the local pub for their dinner whilst we kept on walking. We were overwhelmed by the support of  the Ashington people, who stopped cars and donated to us during our walk in addition to all of our lovely sponsors.

We have raised approximately a grand total of £600. It was a wonderful day for all of us and emotive to say the least.

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!
