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.

Trip to Netley Abbey

Residents had a lovely day at Netley Abbey recently as we took a trip out in the minibus for the day. We visited the old hospital and pier which was a lovely journey back in time. This was followed by a picnic and tea.
