What a lovely week we have had at woodlands with lots and lots of activities.

We started our week with a lovely morning in the gardens. We wanted to make the most of warm weather as we sat together and had a chat, enjoying each other’s company.



We then spent the rest of our morning doing our exercise class. This helps keep our joints supple.

In the evening we celebrated birthday of one of our residents together. We all enjoyed the cake and wished her a very happy birthday.

We spent Tuesday being creative with the autumn leaves. Our residents loved it as we welcomed the change of season. They were very competitive as usual but all the art work turned out very good and it was impossible to pick the best.


We had a chance to turn our lounge into a dance floor. The carers joined in with the residents up for a  dance as we enjoyed the music together ending with a classic sing along.

On Thursday morning the residents joined the physiotherapist for some exercise.  Most of them joined her and kept their body moving. They ended the morning with glasses of fruit juice as for hydration.

Later in the afternoon some of our talented residents put together some beautiful flower arrangements. They decorated the vase beautifully and these were then placed throughout the home.

On Friday our manager, deputy and head chef got on the floor and joined for the games. The residents got all excited and enjoyed the games with them. They spent their morning playing parachute games and in the afternoon they played what’s in the box which was very interesting.


On Saturday we started the morning training our brains with the giant crossword. Residents love this game and are champions.

We then spent the afternoon enjoying afternoon tea and cakes then watching movie 1917.


On Sunday we played with the water colours and created these art works. Our residents loved it and by the end of the session our hands were all covered in paints. Thankfully we managed to protect our clothes from being coloured. But it was all worth the mess.
