Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Katie Kearsley

I started work at Dovedale in April 2016. I have a background in care and love working with people with dementia, which is why I became an Activities Coordinator; I want the residents to be able to enjoy life to the best of their abilities. I like to learn about residents' passions and try my best to implement them some way into our activities programme.

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.
