Chloe Booth

Activities Coordinator - Bank

My name is Chloe Booth and I am one of the Activities Coordinators here at Arbour Court. I have worked at this home since 2012 and have spent much of that time as a Carer. However, in 2018, I decided I was ready for a change, and applied to work on the activities team.

I love working at Arbour Court; I love the residents, the staff and the nature of the work. Dementia is something that turns people’s lives upside down, so if I can spend time with someone and make them smile, I feel I have done my job well.

I love spending time with the residents and getting to know them on a personal level. We go on outings, play games and find out residents’ likes and dislikes.
