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.

Kurling Competition

We had a fun day at Westlake House, where we had been invited to take part in a kurling competition. Our team was made up of Anne, Betty, Arthur and Fred, and they were treated to lunch. The final score was 295 to Westlake and 230 to Wykeham – not bad for a first attempt!

Tall Hall Nursery

Our friends from Toad Hall Nursery on their monthly visit. This time, they all helped preparing for the Wykeham House Family Fun Day on 4th August. We had a great time, and are looking forward to their next visit.

Family Fun Day

We had a delicious barbecue and stalls that were manned by the staff and their families. Special thanks to the catering team, housekeeping team, and our friends at Ballard and Shortall for providing the horses and carriage for the day.

Worthing Wanderers

We had a fabulous minibus trip to Worthing and strolled along the promenade. We had lunch in the Pavilion Cafe and walked on the pier afterwards. The weather was glorious!
