Whilst John has been sunning himself on holiday and enjoying a well deserved break, Our lovely Tess has stepped in as activities co-ordinator this week. 'Have had the best week as activity coordinator this week! Sorry to every one that I’ve irritated with constant chirpiness'!
Here's a little insight as to what Tess and our amazing resident's have been doing.....

Spring has well and truly sprung this week at Charlton Kings Care Home and we have all enjoyed an action packed week of fun in the sun!

On Monday our book club caught up with their current read ‘Murder on Sea’. Our crime solving residents put their heads together and tested their sleuthing skills to try and solve ‘whodunnit’ before DCI Mike McGuire cracks the case!

On Tuesday our gardening club spent a happy afternoon in the sun learning about the many possible uses for our garden herbs! We used old support stockings to create individual bouquet garni’s and planted chives, parsley and oregano into pots to create a truly sensory experience for everyone to enjoy!
Our sunflower competition has really heated up this week as we transferred our fast growing seedlings from their pots into the garden. Currently they are all shooting up fast and it will be difficult to pick a winner!
After our busy morning, the residents enjoyed chilling out with a relaxing health and wellbeing session in the afternoon. Cool drinks were served whilst Tanya from G Fitness gave bespoke chair massages, manicures and pedicures were on offer and we tried out some simple meditation techniques!

On Wednesday the hugely popular Walks with Hawks were back to visit us bringing a variety of beautiful hawks, owls and falcons for the residents to meet and handle. We were all thrilled to see our old friend Ebu the owl again and he certainly seemed just as excited to be back with us as he led the way – flying happily in to greet everyone!
We also welcomed students in from Cheltenham College and enjoyed reminiscing about our own school days and summer holidays whilst listening to the children talking about their own experiences.

The week finished with the highlight of our social calendar – fish n chips and a good old game of bingo! Prizes were handed out and enjoyed (I’m sure there was some cheating going on!)

'Why can we not have this every week'? Was one comment after our first cheese and wine event of the year. A brief introduction was given on the production of wine, before we got down to the serious business of sampling, Red, Sparkling White and Rose' wines. Just to help it go down, there were wonderful cheese boards playing host to a selection of cheeses. A wonderful social occasion when we all got together, we will certainly be having it again!

Tuesday was an opportunity to try another new activity; boxing training. Yes you heard me right! Gloves were donned, pads provided, and great laughter was had! However, do not fear, there was not a black eye in the house, just good clean fun had by all.

When the sun was shining we took the opportunity to enjoy it, heading to Cox’s Meadow we had a great time watching the world go by.

It wasn’t the last of the laughter as we have also had live entertainment which produced a great sing a long and even a bit of impromptu Morris dancing!

Hello, hope you all enjoyed a scrummy Easter! We have! We had our very own eggstraspecial Easter bunny delivering eggs to all the residents on Sunday. Thankfully, we also worked some calories off with a little exercise and sing a long with Rosie from musical moments on Easter Monday. Our little chicks are no longer little, we wave a sad good bye to them today in what has been a privilege to share their first two weeks of life, they will be missed!
We have also embarked on a wonderful new art project with Eunice from Mojo Art, linking in with Art in Care day on 28th of June. Residents are contributing their talent with butterflies designed by them going towards a ‘Tree of Life’ celebration held in Kingshayes National Trust. Butterflies from all around Britain will come together to create a fantastic display which our butterflies will be a part off. On the 28th of June we will also host our own art gallery which will display all the wonderful creations of our residents so please pop in and take a look.
Outside in the garden its gathering apace. A new large trug has arrived so that our green fingered residents can have some fun from growing their own this summer. Rollis, our wonderful handyman is up date and repairing our pagoda ready for the barmy summer evenings to come when all can enjoy a moment in the garden. Roll on summer!
