Meet our Activities Coordinator, Annabel Mitchell
Annabel started here at Chater in 2017 as a Housekeeping Assistant, before finding her passion for activities. Annabel loves animals and has bought a variety into the home. Annabel supports residents with their spiritual needs and their individual interests, as well as coordinating fun quizzes and games and arranging regular entertainment for everyone.
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.
Life at Chater Lodge Care Home
Birthdays are always a great event at Chater Lodge, and we love nothing more than to help our residents on Memory Lane celebrate and open presents and cards from loved ones.
Residents all enjoyed learning some circus skills with new Activities Coordinator, Maria Durrant. I’m sure there will be lots more fun to have!
Sometimes you just have to have an impromptu karaoke session to cheer you up. It always goes down well here at Chater!
Outside visits have begun and it has been wonderful to see families reunited. The weather has been compliant and the smiles have brightened the day!
We have been keeping ourselves entertained during lockdown by trying new games. 'Pie Face' went down particularly well and lots of laughter was heard around the building.
To celebrate the Queen’s birthday this year, we decided to make a cake shaped like a crown. It was great fun to decorate and we think it turned out quite well.
Continuing Life Enrichment
During this unprecedented time, we have a number of measures in place to ensure residents remain engaged, connected and socially active.
Luxury Afternoon Tea
We’ll have finger sandwiches, scones, cakes, bubbly and an extensive range of teas and coffee!
Come along to our friendly and informal group to enjoy a chat over a hot drink and other refreshments.
