Callam Hodges

Activities Coordinator

I've been a healthcare assistant on and off for four years and I loved it, but it seemed I could enrich the lives of the people I cared for even further in this new role.
I love the look on the residents faces when I tell them there will be some fun activities to take part in today, I love the positive feedback we get when someone has really enjoyed something I've created or organised and I love reaching out to the community and bringing people into the home to entertain us. I especially love getting musicians in or bringing animals to the home
