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 our home
Wearing it Pink
We had our open day on October 19th and decided to wear pink for breast cancer awareness. We had a cake sale and raised £45 in total. We were entertained by Alan Jackson and the residents had a great day trying on pink accessories.
There are lots of fun activities planned throughout October here at Chater.
Welcome Back, Zoolab!
We were thrilled to see Zoolab return to us with all creatures weird and wonderful. The brave residents held an array of creatures, whilst others looked and learned from a small distance. Every time they visit we learn something new! Thank you, Zoolab!
The Sensory Bus
We are very pleased to welcome the sensory bus to Chater Lodge. The bus will be visiting every Friday through September and October, with a different theme each time. We had a taster day and the residents loved it!
Events & Activities in November
There are lots of fun activities planned throughout November here at Chater Lodge.
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.
