Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Fay Parry

Hello, I'm Fay, the Activities Coordinator here at Bradshaw Manor. I graduated from Glyndwr University with a degree in Complementary Therapies for Healthcare.

The main focus of my role is to ensure that residents have fun and have a role in selecting the activities that we provide here. 

My aim is to provide fun and therapeutic activities for everyone to benefit from. At Bradshaw Manor, we endeavour to provide the best we can for those we support. As we say: the residents do not live in our workplace – we work in their home.
