Hayley Gurklis

Activities Coordinator

My name is Hayley and my role at Ashfields is to physically and mentally stimulate residents by offering a range of activities for them to enjoy. I want to get everyone involved and make our home community and atmosphere as positive and welcoming as possible. I want to focus on our care home being very much a home away from home. I am going to be getting to know every one of the lovely people who lives here personally, finding out their likes and dislikes, and making sure that there is always something for them to be doing.
