Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lynne Bowler & Amy Few

Lynn (left)

I joined the activities team in May 2017. Previously, I have worked as a tree surgeon and have had heavy involvement with the Guides and Brownies.

I love participating in activities with residents, whether that's by driving the minibus on trips outside the home, or by engaging in themed days.

Amy (right)

I have worked in the care sector since 2012 and find working with the elderly to be incredibly rewarding. I have worked at Adlington Manor since 2016.  

I am happily married and have 2 dogs – one is a fully-trained PAT dog and the other is currently in training. They both enjoy partaking in activities here at Adlington Manor. The residents adore the companionship they provide.

I work on activities 5 days a week and cover everybody’s needs, like and dislikes. I am very hands-on in all aspects of my role and I love spending time getting to know residents on a personal level.

Activities at our home

Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.
