Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Hannah Boscott

I have worked here at Chacombe Park Care Home since 2013; I started at Chacombe as a care assistant followed by becoming a senior carer before taking on the role as Activities Co-coordinator. I love being part of the fun and entertainment that we have here at Chacombe. I strive to ensure all residents we support are involved with everyday life at Chacombe one way or another by organising group and individual activities.

We have a varied activity programme that is never fixed and if residents are wishing to do an alternative activity this is never an issue. There are regular entertainers, PAT dog, themed events/days such as beach days, cultural days as well as celebrating the big calendar events such as Guy Fawkes. We also have regular trips out on the Mini Bus, which include visiting places of interest, lunch trips/afternoon tea. Relatives, friends and family are encouraged to join the activities that we have going on around the home as often as they can.

Activities at our home

We understand that the people we support have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events are organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.

Variety Show

We enjoyed a pre-Christmas show with a few surprises, including a cheeky monkey, Louis Armstrong and Elvis Presley. There were lots of jokes and plenty of laughing and Christmas singing to go with it.

Fun & Games

Lucy, our Activities Assistant, brought her son, Joshua, along to interact and engage with residents. Josh had lots of fun playing ping pong with them!

Bonfire Night

Throughout the week leading up to Bonfire Night, residents had great fun creating our very own Guy Fawkes. On Bonfire Night, we were joined by family members, our local brownies group, residents and staff, who all enjoyed delicious refreshments and a wonderful display of fireworks.
