Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sarah Goodman

Sarah joined Alice Grange in 2017 as part of the activities team, but was was promoted to the Activities Lead in 2018. Sarah is inspirational in the way she supports the residents with their well-being – the home has never been so exciting!

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.
