Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Ros Stuart

My name is Ros and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Bod Hyfryd Care Home.

I have a background in care, community development and fundraising. I enjoy being with people and endeavour to empower individuals with a positive, person-centred approach. I love learning about the life histories of those we support and tailoring activities to each individual's likes and dislikes.

Activities at Bod Hyfryd

The mental, physical and emotional welfare of our residents is of paramount importance to our staff at Bod Hyfryd. Every resident is seen, if possible, daily and we try to include as many residents as possible in our activities from bowls to baking, craft to exercise and chatting, to hand or foot massage. Everyone has a daily activities plan, a weekly plan and a monthly one. These are created specifically for that person, often from their life history and by talking to the family and resident. We have entertainers in at least once a month and if possible more often. We also have various trips out on the mini bus including trips to Chester Zoo, Lady Diana boat trip down the River, garden centre visits or even to Art Galleries and beaches. We understand that not all residents are outgoing, so for the quieter people, we respect their wishes but often find when they see what we are doing the come and join in. People achieve things they think they will never do again and to see the smile on their faces makes each day very special.

Halloween Spiders

Residents have been busy making bobbin spiders and sticking them on to cobwebs, which are then glued on to canvasses.  The canvasses will be hung around our home to decorate for Halloween.
