Resident Ann becomes new Lifestyle team member at Timken Grange

Timken Grange officially welcomed their new Lifestyle team member this week, much-loved resident Ann, who was delighted to put on her green Oakdale Care Group Lifestyle polo shirt. The team had been looking at residents’ roles within the home and thought Ann would be a great fit as a member of the Lifestyle team, due to her creative flair, patience and love of baking and arts and crafts.

During a recent arts and crafts session, where residents were busy making Autumn wreaths, Lifestyle Manager Daniel asked Ann if she would like to become part of the team and Ann jumped at the chance. Ann has already held some fabulous Origami sessions with her fellow residents and will be holding baking sessions throughout November too.

Ann said of her new role, “The Lifestyle team is a great team I’m excited to be a part of. You’re never too old to try new experiences.”

Lifestyle Manger Daniel added, “Ann is a natural; she was an avid ballroom dancer and due to her not being able to do that to her full potential anymore, this gives her a new lease of life and purpose.”

Well done Ann and welcome to the team!
