Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lisa Davison

I joined Bedewell Grange in 2013 as the Activities Coordinator, but had previously worked as a Senior Carer.

This current role gives me the most job satisfaction. I love spending time with the residents and thinking of new ways to entertain them and coming up with new ideas. I take great pride when a new idea is successful and gets positive feedback from residents and families. I am also lucky enough to be able to bring along my Dachshund, ‘Poppy,’ a few days a week. The ladies & gentleman of Bedewell love seeing and interacting with her; she’s one of our team too!

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.

Bedewell Buddies

Meet our 3 Bedewell Buddies: Maureen, Doris & Peg. These ladies buddy up with less able residents to support and help them to continue enjoying activities in our home. Peg has come from the world of business, Maureen is a former nurse and homemaker and Doris was also a homemaker who loved crafting. These ladies are always keen to participate in most activities and assist the Activities Coordinator.

Arts & Crafts

At Bedewell Grang, we are working with Equal Arts and Henpower; local artists come in and we create lots of artwork using different mediums, and we're always trying to think of ways we can expand on the artists' ideas. 

We had great fun working on our summer theme art with different fabrics, and once they were mounted and framed they looked stunning. 

Our next artist is a ceramic artist, so stay tuned for more pictures of our ceramic creations.

Easter Activities

Here at Bedewell Grange, staff and residents all enjoyed our Easter Egg hunt on Good Friday. We also hosted a seasonal baking afternoon and indulged in a cake or two afterwards.

Communal Crossword Activity

Every week, we all get together for a crossword activity, which allows for residents to participate in a cognitive puzzle. This can help with memory, problem solving, social interaction, promotes discussion and results in a jolly good laugh. Residents are often joined by friends and family members, who are always welcome.

St Patrick's Day

Here at Bedewell Grange, we had a great night celebrating St Patrick's Day with the great singer, Christine Rosemond. She has entertained the residents & staff on previous occasions and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. We also had an Irish-themed tea party!
