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.
My work is very rewarding and it is a pleasure planning events & activities each month. I enjoy interacting with residents and learning about people’s interests, preferences and experiences.
I have worked with the elderly over five years and also for fifteen years in the social field as an Activities Coordinator for different social groups in three countries. I have a Degree in Social Integration, a Certificate in Theatrical Psychology & a Music Therapy certificate. In the past I have worked for local authorities and in a cerebral palsy home.
