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.
Life at Awel-Y-Mor Care Home
At long last, residents can go out on the mini bus again. They were so excited to see the beach again and, to top it off, the weather was sunny and dry.
Sensory Tasting Session
Residents enjoyed a sensory tasting session to taste a variety of fruit from around the world and to discuss the countries where the fruits were grown.
A resident had fun peeling and chopping up fruit to make pineapple and mango smoothies for herself and other residents. They tasted delicious!
Red Nose Day
Residents and staff had great fun during Red Nose Day, where they started the activities by dressing up and having egg and spoon races.
Everyone had lots of fun!
A resident had great fun reading up and making bird treats for the garden. Once made and set, we placed the treats near his window so he could enjoy the view.
St David's Day
Residents enjoyed baking Bara Brith and Welsh Cakes in time to celebrate St. David’s Day. We were listening to Welsh music in the background with Welsh flags hanging from the ceilings and daffodils in vases.
