Meet our Activities Coordinator, Geoff Cowell
My name is Geoff and I have been working at Chester Court Care Home since 2015. My previous roles have included a school caretaker and running my own pub. Working in the care sector has been the most personally rewarding position I have ever held. My role as an Activities Coordinator ensures that residents have as much fun at the home as possible.
Activities at Chester Court
Our activities coordinator has been working in the home since April 2015. From the beginning, his aim was to make sure that residents felt they had something to look forward to each day. We have a varied activities programme, both in the home and in the community, and we always ask if there is anything different that residents would like to do. Residents and families approach our Activities Coordinator and comment on how much they enjoy what we do, which is a great reward to him personally.
Life at our home
Everyone had lots of fun creating Christmas stocking here at Chester Court. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
