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 Centre
Friday Night Takeaway
Friday night takeaway was a great success. Residents sat in the dining room eating burger and chips with a slice of cheesecake or a bowl of fruit for dessert and enjoying a glass of beer of prosecco.
It was full of laughter and fun, listening to music that was playing in the background and the dining room decorated with flowers and candles for a restaurant feel atmosphere.
Squirrel Appreciation Day
This was the first time that Awel-Y-Mor celebrated Squirrel Appreciation Day. Residents had a laugh wearing the squirrel hats, read up about squirrels from the handouts and enjoyed a nut tasting afternoon.
Residents had fun playing ‘roll or shove a 2 pence piece’ down the gym using beanbags and the sensory equipment. This activity was to exercise their upper limbs and to encourage their mental arithmetic.
Awel-Y-Mor’s Christmas arade went down well with all the residents and staff. The atmosphere was fun and magical. The staff then delivered the festive fun to all the children on the local street. Their faces were a delight for all to see!
Residents and staff were treated to a pizza afternoon, eating their favourite pizza toppings and enjoying the atmosphere.
