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.
Life at Wykeham House Care Home
Getting ready for 'Sports Day'
Here at Wykeham House our activities team are getting 'sports day ready' by making our own rosettes with for the big day next Thursday.
A delivery of cards and letters to residents from friends within our community
Goodies baks to the community
Wykeham House have received so much support from our local community we decided to deliver some back. We took our own Barchester bags of useful goods out to our friends in the community. They were very well received.
Community Foodbank Delivery
Our activities team had pleasure in delivering cup cakes to our local assisted living communities. Each cup cake was individually packed in boxes decorated by residents. As usual our kitchen team made the most delicious cakes. Obviously there was a lot of testing my our residents.
Gifts for the Community
Our teams here at Wykeham House have been assisting our residents to decorate cake boxes to fill with cakes that are being delivered back into our community. Our first stop is some local assisted living properties then onto the foodbanks. Obviously some of our residents have had to test these cakes, they were in agreement that the cakes are yummy. A great treat to go out into the community.
World Chocolate Day
Residents enjoyed the delicious chocolate mousse made by our talented chefs. Everyone had some chocolates from around the world and some even tried chocolate wine that Julia our general manager brought in to try.
