Meet our Activities Coordinator, Paula Lourenco
I organise a variety of activities and social events within the home and community, including arts and crafts, musical entertainment, regular quizzes, music and movement, gardening, themed days and knitting.
I’m always looking for the most creative activities to do with our residents, and support them to continue to enjoy doing their hobbies and help them to be involved in the activities they like most.
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.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

Residents enjoy the monthly quizzes at Ashchurch View with volunteer John from Tewkesbury Rotary Club. Delicious biscuits were given to resident Pat as a prize for being the winner and scoring 17 out of 20 questions! Well done!
A special send-off for our manager.
The team got together to give our Home Manager Jade, a special send-off as she started her maternity leave. We all wished Jade the best, residents and staff can’t wait to meet the new arrival of the little boy!
Delivering Goodies to Ashchurch Primary School
We delivered gifts to the winners of our snowflake competition as well as some goodies to all the children at Ashchurch Primary School, who participated in this creative artwork.
It was lovely to see everyone and we look forward to further projects together.
Decorating for Christmas
Christmas has arrived at Ashchurch View Care Home!
Residents and the team have been busy getting the decorations in each community, outdoors and all across the home! Listening to Christmas songs and getting in the Christmas spirits. The team have gone the extra mile; we got everyone involved from housekeeping, kitchen, maintenance, hairdresser, administration and activities; Amazing team work!
We’ve had a visit from two Elves. Apparently one was good, and the other the naughty Elf. Residents said that they were playing Christmas songs as they were going along the corridors pushing a trolley full of mince pies!
They’ve also said that the Elves were well behaved; delivered mince pies to them, said a few jokes and made them laugh a lot. Well done team, the mince pies were delicious!
