Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jo, Sarah & Julie
Awel-Y-Mor's activities team consists of three Activities Coordinators, each having a specialist unique role within the group, including work in the multi-sensory concept, as well as organising days out, trips to sporting events and pop concerts, and arranging themed days. Jo has been with us for over ten years, beginning her Barchester career as a Carer; and Sarah has been with us for over five years now and also started out as a Carer; and Julie joined us in 2018.
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.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies
Life at Awel-Y-Mor Care Home
Our Jubilee Jigsaw still not quite finished, but residents still having fun.
Relaxing in the Sunshine
Residents having a relaxing time enjoying the sunshine in the garden.
A resident was busy making scones for Ladies Day Afternoon Tea to enjoy, while watching the Royal Ascot.
Residents had fun all week with the Jubilee Celebrations, starting off with the decorations to make the home look festive. On the Thursday we held our Jubilee Big Lunch where all the residents and staff enjoyed the buffet from fresh meats, pasta, pizzas, etc. to our Jubilee Pudding and Crown Cake, a lovely party atmosphere. In the afternoon we had a good sing song with Jimmy ‘Elvis’ entertainer, it was full of enjoyment and excitement. The residents loved watching the coverage of the Jubilee on the T.V.
Awel y Mor’s 30th Anniversary

Primary School Visit
We all had a lovely time listening to the local school singing, where residents and staff joined in, there were a few tears of joy to be had.
