The fun and laughter has continued at Magnolia Court care home, in Hampstead as residents recently enjoyed trying a gardening session, Halloween Arts and crafts, sharing letters with local schools and staff dressing up in the Halloween theme.
Residents at Magnolia Court have enjoyed our engaging activities programmes consisting of Halloween Baking, virtual music sessions and even filmed their own dance routine for ‘SilverAge’. Residents here take part in regular exercise sessions arranged by the homes’ activities team for residents within the home and local community groups.
The activities coordinators Mimi and Tammie support the personal interests of residents so they can continue with their individual hobbies in an effort to celebrate life as often as we can. All group and individual activities offer a choice of mental, physical and spiritual activities of people we care for.
Residents have taken part in new hobbies, baking and pumpkin Carving and kept in touch with their pen pals in the local schools. This type of activity is meaningful to residents, and provides social engagement, as creates a lot of fun within the home.
Octavian Stanciu, General Manager at Magnolia Court Care Home said: “Ensuring residents feel engaged and connected within our homes is more important than ever. Our residents have really enjoyed getting creative for ‘Southbank arts centre exhibition’ and preparing an autumn inspired window frame with leaves from the garden which will displayed in there centre. We provide a wide range of activities at Magnolia Court as part of the life enrichment programme for residents, and this one was very popular!
Our varied activities programme allows us to provide stimulation of the mind, body and soul for residents in group activities, as well as one-to-one. We have also adapted ways to keep residents active, whilst ensuring that the group activities are smaller, adhering to current government social distancing advice”
