Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sharon Young

Welcome to Bryn Ivor Lodge Care Home, my name is Sharon Young and I am the activities co-ordinator here at the home.

I have worked in the care sector for nearly 30 years, progressing from being a Senior Care Assistant to my current position. I am able to develop excellent relationships with residents and their families, providing support and I always go that extra mile! I am very passionate about the quality of activities which are provided to residents, and will work closely with the staff team to ensure these activities are appropriate and resident focussed. I will work hard to support the rest of our team to provide the highest quality of care possible. I am very family orientated person and enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren.

Activities at our home

Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.

Pamper Day

The pamper day was held by Tropic Cosmetics. The residents were invited to have a hand and arm massage or facial or foot treatment all for a minimal fee. 25% of the fees were donated by the beautician, Tracey Mason, to our charity for this year which is The Huntington's Disease Association. All of the residents thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we also raised forty pounds for our charity.

Bryn Ivor Choir

At Bryn Ivor Lodge, we have our own choir, which has been a great success. The majority of the choir comprises residents from from our Memory Lane communities; they held a concert for their families, which was wonderful and we are all so proud of them. It was quite an emotional experience and a few family members shed a tear. The choir has been such a success that we intend to continue in the new year.
