Meet our Activities Coordinator, Rita Green

As a Lifestyle Activities Coordinator, I will be spending time with each resident and their loved ones to build a detailed picture of each individual, so that each person’s stay with us is as meaningful as possible.

Although I have been working within this field for many years, thanks to the uniqueness of each resident, I am always enjoying new experiences in my role. My goal is to create an activities programme that caters to the capabilities of residents, including, but not limited to, individual and group activity. 

I've spent the past few years forging strong relationships within the community and developing a pool of talented individuals that can supplement our in-house team to bring out the best in those we support.

As we never stop growing and changing, it is important that we maintain an up-to-date Getting to Know Me booklet. With your help, the activities scheduled for your loved ones will be as relevant and enjoyable as possible.

I’m very much looking forward to working with all of you.

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.

Gemini Fashion

Bringing the high street shopping experience into our home allows residents to maintain independence and make choices that lead to fun and creativity. Some enjoy just browsing, whilst others love trying on new clothes and accessories.

Around the Home

During our one-to-ones, we encourage residents to take the lead in where or what to do to enhance their day, even if it's just a simple stroll around the home. A walk in the garden or even into the admin office can be a memorable experience – and a little gentle exercise always helps!

Pitball Games

Those who participated in our pitball games had a lot of fun! Residents paired up and challenged each other. This game is a great way to stay active.

Valentine's Day

We were joined by vocalist, Debbie Watt, who put on a wonderful performance for residents on Valentine's Day, which was filled with love, laughter and fun. She sang lots of hits from the '50s and '60s, and residents can't wait for her next visit.

Our General Manager, Marie Smale, was stick in traffic due to an accident on the A120, and to combat the boredom, she distributed some heart lollies to fellow drivers and passengers, wishing everyone a happy Valentine's Day.

The highlight of the day was when the lollies made their way to the local nursery school children, who we were visiting on the day.

A simple activity themed around a pumpkin lead to a very interesting discussion about its colour, weight, texture and smell.
