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.
Life at Woodland View Care Home
Residents from Woodland View enjoyed a trip to Dedham, where they were able to enjoy the lovely views and to have a hot drink with biscuits.
We visited Dedham Village and had a wonderful chat about the history and buildings in there, said hello to the farm animals at the Hall farm and enjoyed the afternoon cuppa near the River Stour.
After more than 10 weeks of having virtual choir sessions, residents at Woodland View were singing face-to-face together with Rebecca from Ace Music Therapy. Everyone enjoyed the choir session and looking forward to the next one.
Residents at Woodland View marked the anniversary of VE Day, also known as Victory in Europe Day, by organising a variety of special activities.
The home was specially decorated for the occasion and residents gathered together for a tea party. Residents got involved in a singalong, themed talks, reminiscence sessions.
Victory in Europe Day is the day celebrating the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Germany’s unconditional surrender of its armed forces on Tuesday, 8 May 1945, marking the end of World War II in Europe.
Paying Our Respects
The nation said their final farewell to HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He touched the hearts of people all around the world.
Here at Woodland View, we have put together a visual display and paid the tribute to Prince Philip.
We are now rated 'Good'!
We are excited to announce that Woodland View passed a recent Care Quality Commission inspection with an overall 'Good' rating after being praised for a responsive, safe, effective, caring and well-led service.
In celebration of the rating and to thank each member of the team for their contributions to the home, each team member was presented with a gift voucher in appreciation of their hard work.
Residents and staff at Woodland View had busy Easter time. They created their own Easter bunnies, spring flowers and decorated dining rooms for Easter.
Everyone enjoyed new experiences and were incredibly happy with the results. We had the best Easter egg hunt and a Easter-themed photoshoot.
The Easter bunny visited every resident and left sweet treats for everyone.
