Karen Colvin

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Karen Colvin

My name is Karen, and I'm the Ancillary Manager & Head of Activities here at Archview. I have worked here for over 20 years. I am married with 3 children and also have a dog called Toby. I like to enjoy myself and live life to the full, and I want to ensure that those we support can too.

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.
