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.

Getting ready for our Christmas Fete

Christmas season was in full swing by all at Ashlar when a couple of school children from Bright Horizon Epping Day Nursery and their teachers helped us decorate for our Christmas Fete this weekend. The children kindly completed a little project of creating two boxes for our Tombola.

Christmas Decorations

Ashlar House is now showered with Christmas decorations. A big thank you from our wonderful team players, Kristina and Ingrida, who worked around their shift to add their wonderful artwork.

As we end our last visit for the month with our regular Music for Health session Anastisa. Everyone's spirits were lifted and families even got involved!

Ukulele Group

We invited a local ukulele group to the home recently. A few of our early risers attended the site, which was a nice change of scenery that delivered a morning lift to all attended.

Keeping Fit

We've started doing some more physical activities here at Ashlar that are designed to increase hand-eye coordination and overall fitness, with an added bonus of just having fun. First up was netball, followed by skittles, and everyone had lots of fun.

Prayers & Communion

St John Church visits Ashlar House to deliver their monthly Prayers & Communion service, which takes place in our lounge. They also visit less mobile residents in their rooms if they are unable to attend the service.
