Meet our Activities Coordinator, Gemma Stone

My name is Gemma and I have lived in Warrington all my life. I love working at Brookfield; I am very approachable and open to any new ideas you might have.

Prior to working at Brookfield, I was a community care worker for eighteen months. I visited clients in their own homes and assisted with their personal needs. I also supported a lady twice a week, and helped her to integrate back into the community.

At Brookfield, I am in charge of all activities, and I work closely with residents to provide them with a programme that they can all enjoy. 

Activities at Brookfield

Our Activities coordinator dedicates her time on getting feedback from our residents of what they like to do. We have introduced paper mornings which involves group discussions and an active mind, and we also have a variety of entertainers that come in on a weekly basis. We hold a residents quiz once a week as it is one of our more popular activities, we now call it the Big Quiz due to its popularity.

It is important that we involve the community and family in many of our activities. We have the local rugby club heritage centre coming in once a week to do Bocci (indoor bowls) and seated exercise. We also hold cheese and wine evenings for family and residents which are very popular. Here at Brookfield we pride ourselves on the fabulous bond our activity coordinator has with all our residents as they are as happy to see her each morning as she is to see her friends.
