Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) are proud to be delivering health and wellbeing benefits to residents at Primrose Lodge in Chester-le-Street, County Durham.
Our new Activity Worker, Kimberley Graver, works directly with residents at Primrose Lodge to develop an exciting programme of activities. This includes their latest events of a Macmillan Coffee Morning and a end of summer barbecue, which were a great success!
Primrose Lodge provides rehabilitation and recovery services to people aged 18 to 65 years with mental health problems in a community setting, in order to help them go back into their local community after spending time in a hospital setting.
At Primrose Lodge there is a lounge, games room, conservatory, kitchen, laundry and dining facilities, to be shared by all residents. There is also a female resident only lounge available.
Residents were actively involved with the recent activities, with many choosing to have their own responsibilities at each event to contribute and engage with each other.
The Macmillan Coffee Morning saw Kimberley and residents come together to bake a selection of sweet treats ahead of the big day on Friday 24th September. Together they raised a total of £44.62p through a cake sale and raffle in support of Macmillan Cancer.
Following on from the Macmillan Coffee Morning, Primrose Fest took place on the afternoon and was decorated for the occasion. Everyone enjoyed games, a music quiz, karaoke, glitter face paints and a barbecue .
They were both fantastic events, and the feedback from the patients and staff involved has been excellent!
PCP are proud to work with Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust to promote health and wellbeing benefits to communities. Find out more about Primrose Lodge here.
