Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lorraine Green

I love working with residents and seeing them flourish through social stimulation. Social activity is an important part of our lives and here at Worplesdon, we encourage all residents to keep active by doing what they enjoy. Everyone is different, so we ensure that there is something for everyone. Come and visit us soon!

Activities at Worplesdon View

The activities team at Worplesdon View organise and run activities and events for large groups, small groups and individual residents. We include relatives, volunteers and the remaining staff whenever possible and encourage choice and participation from everyone we support. Our programme is planned in advance and is is designed provide tailored, meaningful activities for residents to participate in that will stimulate all senses, whist encouraging mental and physical well-being. We have an activity plan for all residents, and of course, this changes with the needs of each person to keep it up-to-date and useful. Worplesdon View is a fun and dynamic place to live and work, and the secret to this is that everyone is encouraged to see activities as part of their role in the home so that residents are happy and always have something to do.

Garden Party

Worplesdon View held its annual garden party and BBQ for loved ones, staff members and residents. Unfortunately, it howled down, but this did not stop us from having a great afternoon. Lucinda Seiger and Farrago entertained everyone with live music, which was amazing, and we enjoyed a fabulous BBQ, pasta and salads with lots of other delicious refreshments.

Thanks to everyone who came along and for the generous raffle donations.
