Musical Therapist

Before getting into music therapy, I was a violinist and conductor. Through this career, I had experienced the enormous enrichment that music provides and the idea of working in music therapy had been bubbling in me for some time. However, it was a conversation in a pub which finally spurred me to do it; I was talking to a violinist who plays in an orchestra I conduct. She is a music therapist and asked if I would like to spend a day with her as an assistant. I did this and it is true to say it was a life changing experience. I came straight home, got on the internet and tracked down a course with Nordoff Robbins.

I graduated with my Master's degree in 2013 and have been working at Bluebell Park ever since. It wasn’t my first time at the home though, as I spent my placement year working here!

Gardener

Hi, my name is Jordan and I have been at Bluebell Park since November 2017, and I have always loved gardening.

In 2013, I completed a horticulture course and obtained NVQ Levels 1 and 2. I plan to make the gardens at Bluebell Park a place for residents and loved ones to relax, whilst enjoying my hobby and extending my knowledge of horticulture.

I feel lucky to have the opportunity to work in such a quality garden and it is great to do what I love as a job.

Claire Hazell

Activities Coordinator

Hi, My name is Claire and I am an activities coordinator here at the home. I have worked at Bluebell Park since 2020 and prior to joining worked as a teaching assistant for 17 years.  I decided I wanted a change from the school environment but wanted to remain in the caring sector. 

 I enjoy working for Bluebell Park mainly because I find the role very rewarding and I love to spend time with the residents, listening to their life stories and experiences.  Every day is different and I love to see smiles on their faces whilst enjoying the activities that I provide.  It gives me a huge amount of pleasure to know that I have made a difference to their lives.  There is never a dull moment with them.

My hobbies include walking, cycling and nature.  Spending time with my family and friends is also high on my priority list
