Meet our Activities Coordinator, Maria Martinez-Sanchez
I have been part of the Cheverton Lodge family since September 2016.
My role is to ensure that our residents live life to their fullest and provide them with a varied and enriching programme of events including shopping events, gin tasting, history talks, art lessons, gardening clubs and much, much more.
I also see my role as an advocate for all of our residents in their local community here in Islington and ensure to bring community groups into the home as well as maintaining relationships outside of Cheverton Lodge
Every day I try to go that extra mile for every resident and that gives me such a buzz!
Activities at Cheverton Lodge
Our Activities Coordinators are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians, as well as art therapy, flower arranging, Exercise to music and quizzes. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as they can, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join in with activities and events as often as they can.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

Recently residents have been joining St Andrew's Church via zoom so it is great that services can now resume in the home.
