Meet our Activities Coordinator, Matthew Pound
I have been working at Broadway Halls Care Home as lead activity coordinator for over 10 years. We have some great links within the community that we work closely with such as Tesco, West Midlands Fire Service, local schools, churches and many charities. We believe getting the residents out and about is vital to their well being so regular day trips have been organized such as Chester Zoo, Blackpool, The Black Country Museum, Theatre trips and many more.
There is always something for everyone on the activity program and the staff pantomime is always a firm favorite! Its a very fulfilling job role and I couldn't imagine doing anything else!
Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience, and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
