Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lorraine Jammeh
I have worked at Wykeham House for almost 14 years. I was divisional winner of the memory lane champion award in 2015. I have trained staff in the so kind and the level 3 10.60.06 enhancing dementia care experience. In recent years I have been working on activities focusing on life enrichment. We get to know our residents life stories before tailoring a programme to suit their specific interests. I have also been involved i community engagement and enjoy sharing with the community all the great events we do. I love what I do and a simple smile from our residents makes my day. We are a strong team here at Wykeham House and i'm proud to be part of it.
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.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies
Life at Wykeham House Care Home
Tea for Two
Robert the head chef here at Wykeham House, always likes to make a fuss of everyone. These firm friends were treated to an afternoon of pots of tea and sweet treats all served by Robert himself. The ladies then spent hours nattering away and filing the home with lots of laughter.
Giant Card Games
A firm favourite with everyone at Wykeham House. A good game of higher lower. It can get quite competitive too. Some great old fashioned fun had by all.
Walk around town
Wykeham House is in the perfect location just of the small friendly high street. Residents often get the opportunity to have a little walk through the town. Stopping to see the delights it has to offer and always time to stop for some light refreshments before the walk home.
Ladies that lunch
These ladies have become great friends since moving in to Wykeham House. We recently took them for a delicious lunch at a local hot spot. It was wonderful to see them chatting, laughing and just enjoying the simple things in life that make us all happy. Until the next time ladies.
Garden Party with the Horley Retirment Club
What a wonderful afternoon we had, when we were joined by the Active Horley Retirement Club. We treated them to afternoon tea filled with Fun, Fizz and a lots of dancing too. We look forward to welcoming back soon
We understand the importance of maintaining independence and ensuring meaningful life enrichment here at Wykeham House. Residents had lots of fun donning their chef whites and helping Robert with the valuable job of peeling the vegetables for lunch.
