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
National Tea Day
Residents of Awel-Y-Mor had a lovely day celebrating National Tea Day and the Queen’s birthday with a choice of tea and biscuits. The turmeric, coconut and vanilla teas were very popular!
Everyone was delighted with their Easter presents. Yum!
Residents have been having lots of fun creating some abstract art recently.
Arts & Crafts
Having a lovely time during the art and craft session making birthday cards.
Music for You
Residents have been enjoying our new Music for You sessions with plenty of singing and musical instruments.
Our Halloween restaurant evening was very spooky where the residents, relatives and staff members made a big effort to dress up, they had fantastic food, great entertainment and lots of raffle prizes.
A few days later the activities team organised a pumpkin carving afternoon for residents and staff children/grandchildren where they had entertainment and spooky goodies.
