Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Flavia Barreto

I graduated in Travel & Tourism, so I have some background in organising events and activities. I worked as a Carer for nearly 2 years in care homes and at Southampton General Hospital. I also worked as a manager in the catering industry for 7 years and in Customer Service Relations at Carnival UK.

I do love my job now; I have a chance to improve people's lives and put a smile on their faces. I organise daily activities and plan events for the year based around our multicultural environment. Residents have a choice of activities and we can work around their needs.

Activities at Challoner House

Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.

Indoor Gardening

Bad weather won't stop the residents of Challoner House from gardening; we hosted some indoor sessions, which everyone loved.

Jewellery Making

Residents had a great afternoon making their own necklaces and bracelets. It was an excellent activity for hand-eye coordination and, best of all, they got to keep their own creations.

We opened our doors to the  community to show them how amazing our home looks. We had Ian Kimber singing for us, fizz, tea, cakes and scones – and everyone had a great time!
