Meet our Activities Coordinator, Ian Watts

Ian has been with Chater Lodge since 2016 as an Activities Coordinator. He has been a reverend for 30 years and supports residents with their spiritual need,  as well as coordinating fun quizzes and games.

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.

In the Mood for Dancing

Every afternoon on our Memory Lane community we try to have a bit of a dance, led by the lovely Wendy. Care staff like to join in too, dancing to a range of songs requested by residents.

Big Summer BBQ Bash

We held our Big Summer BBQ Bash on August 11th; lots of visitors came and brought the sun with them. Two donkeys – Basil and Towy – came from Mike's Donkeys with their lovely handler, Liz, to give the children rides, and Basil came into the home to visit residents in their rooms.
