Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Hayley Gurklis

My name is Hayley and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Ashfields. I joined the home in 2004 and have always enjoy making the residents happy and creating person-centered activities programmes. But, most of all, I love the relationship I have with the residents, which I have built up since first starting here; it is something that makes me look forward to coming into work every single day.

Activities at Ashfields

Our skilled Activities Coordinators are always bright and bubbly, bringing great enthusiasm and ideas into the home. We put on a range of exciting activities, including Zumba sessions, bingo, musicians and entertainers. There are regular outings that incorporate visits to local places of interests, including the seaside, Norwich Cathedral, and boat trips along the Norfolk Broads. All our activities are tailored to the individual needs of residents and help to physically and mentally stimulate them. They are also open to all relatives who would like to participate, as we encourage a family-orientated atmosphere.
