Meet our Activities Coordinator, Dawn Charania

I have been at Wykeham House since 2016 in both administration and activities roles. I enjoy what I do and spending time with residents is a wonderful opportunity for me to enrich their days with a varied choice of activities. We like to speak to loved ones and residents about what they enjoy and would like to do. Also, we have a minibus, which we use for trips to local areas of interest and to places like the seaside.

Activities at our home

Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.

Fun for All Generations

Our young friends from Toad Hall Day Nursery came to visit and made shortbread biscuits for everyone. It was nice and sticky and they all worked very hard.

We took resident, Victor, on an outing to ride the steam train at Bluebell Railway on 30th May – and he loved it!

A Special Visit

Two lovely year 2 girls joined us from Salfords Primary School to give out cards with beautiful spring pictures on them and a short message inside written by all the school children. Willow Greaves and Freja Kargbo went around to meet the residents and pass on the beautiful cards they had all made.
