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.

Do you believe in magic?

The very talented magician, David Fox, came to entertain us with some wonderful tricks, which could all be enjoyed by the visually impaired amongst us. Everyone also received a balloon creation of their choice.

VIP Guest

The High Sheriff of Rutland contacted us recently to ask if she can stop by. We were delighted to have her; she talked to lots of residents and had a look around the home. It was lovely to have her!
