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.

Life at our home

Fire Safety in the home

We had a visit from the local fire services. Phil Bradley, who is an experienced firefighter, gave us loads of information about the emergency services, how to keep safe at home and what to do in case of an emergency. We also had the local community and families join us for the talk, which they found. Very helpful and informative!

Magic Show

Residents enjoyed their afternoon with Nick, from Nick Magic! Everyone had a chance to join in during the performance and all shouted the magic word 'Bingo' to help with the tricks. We all had a good laugh during the show.

Easter Celebrations

The rain did not stop us from enjoying Easter; we had a lovely time decorating eggs and hunting for chocolates eggs. It was great to see so many friends and family members around.

Chocolate Decorating Workshop

Residents kicked off the Easter celebrations by decorating their own chocolate bars. They decided what chocolate to use and what toppings would work well together.

Nutrition & Hydration Week

We had a surprise for residents on our pampering day: cucumber and mint water! As it was Nutrition & Hydration Week, residents tried different drinks and learnt how to stay hydrated.

International Women's Day

Ladies at Challoner House were spoiled on International Woman’s Day. They had their hair and nails done while having a glass of Prosecco with chocolates.
