Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jo Thomas, Sarah Davies & Julie Parsons
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.
Life at Awel-Y-Mor Care Centre
Residents of Awel-Y-Mor had a glorious day of visits from residents' families and friends.
A resident from Awel-Y-Mor had fun making hanging bird treats for the birds.
Name the Mascot
We had a competition to name our mascot, and the winning choice was 'Rainbow'. Rainbow now takes pride of place in our foyer!
Residents enjoyed a bit of yoga therapy! Everyone had lots of fun.
