Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sean Scurr

Sean started at Ashford House as a volunteer, as he required 6 weeks work experience for a course at college. During these 6 weeks it became apparent that Sean had a real talent for working in this environment. Sean showed compassion and respect to all residents instantly. After Sean completed his work experience he was offered a position as the Activities assistant. 6 months later Sean now is a valued member of the department and the Ashford House Team, he delivers meaningful activities and supports the residents with all their needs and choices.

Activities at Ashford House

Here at Ashford House we try to aim to cater to everyone’s hobbies and preferences, nothing is impossible! All our activities are designed to empower our residents helping them complete meaningful activities that stimulate them mentally, physically and emotionally. As well as sticking to 'mainstream' activities that you would normally find in this kind of environment, we aim to step outside the box with our provision. We think this is the best way of creating person-centred activities, as each plan is uniquely crafted around each individual, who are treated with respect and dignity in their choices and supported to take control of how they spend their time.

Arts & Crafts

We love being creative at Ashford House, so we hold a weekly craft session where we paint, draw and colour.

A resident who comes to the activity nearly every week wanted to try something new, so we decided to design a mosaic using some table squares, which went down really well.
