Meet our Activities Coordinator, Egle 'Lee' Orante

Hi, my name is Egle, but you can call me just Lee. I am very proud to have been given to opportunity to be an Activities Coordinator here at Woodland View. All my life, I have wanted to support older people. I am a very creative and enthusiastic individual and I want to share all of my energy and passion for activities with the residents who live at Woodland View,

Activities at Woodland View

Woodland View is passionately committed to providing residents with a varied choice of entertainment, social, health and well being, craft and relaxation based activities.

Activities will all be meaningful and based on the likes of residents and will continue to evolve depending on our residents. The activities provided will also include involvement from other local community based organisations and are open to all residents, family and friends of residents. Our activities will be facilitated by staff from all departments as well as invited guests. Families are also enthusiastically encouraged to play a part in activities when possible.

There will always be at least one person at every activity who has been DBS checked to ensure the safeguarding of our residents. The dignity of our residents and our respect for them is at the centre of everything we do, each and every day.

We are always reviewing and changing our schedule of activities to be a centre of excellence and actively invite feedback and suggestions for new and meaningful activities and ideas.

Visit to Castle Park

Our residents at Woodland View enjoy regular trips out and about into the local community. A firm favourite is to go to visit Castle Park in Colchester where we can get ice-creams and feed the birds!

Trip to the Garden Centre

As part of National Gardening week, it only made sense for a trip to the local garden centre where the residents were able to pick out some new flowers for the gardens at Woodland View. This hard work was finished up by a lovely cup of tea and slice of cake at the garden centre cafe.

Visit from the Farm!

The residents at Woodland View all enjoyed some lovely little visitors as part of National Gardening Week! We had baby chicks who were only 2 weeks old and baby goats who were only 4 weeks old! Residents enjoyed a cuddle with the baby farm animals and it was lovely to see the joy in their faces.
