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.
Life at our home
Preparing for Christmas
We have had a lovely time preparing for Christmas. Everyone has helped to get the trees looking wonderful. We are all busy writing our cards and practicing carols.
Elvis Visited Ashford
We had an amazing afternoon on Saturday the 23rd of November when Elvis came to visit. A family kindly arranged for him to perform at Ashford House for a Birthday celebration, everyone was invited and it was a brilliant party!
We had quite a lot of debate about if he was the real deal but at the end of the day everyone has such a wonderful time we were sure the real Elvis had been with us! There was dancing, singing birthday cake and laughter all around.
