Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Karen Legon

My name is Karen, and I have been the Activities Coordinator here at Edgbaston Beaumont for over 5 years, although I have worked for Barchester for almost 10 years. My role consists of arranging general activities around the home, such as trips out, booking entertainers and organising games - it is my responsibility to ensure that residents are entertained. I am also a qualified hairdresser and beautician, so I can cover when our hairdresser is unavailable. I arrange charity events for the Barchester Foundation and local charities and, when required, I help around the home with caring duties, hosting and escorting residents to appointments.

Activities at Edgbaston Beaumont

Our team pride ourselves in providing a wide range of activities and events to suit all of our residents needs. Comprising of art and craft classes, pet therapy, outside entertainers, visits from local schools where students attend and work alongside ourselves and the residents. We also have presentations on wildlife and other demonstrations, musicality and singalongs, quizzes, a poetry corner, knit and natter sessions, and one to one interaction, as well as trips out in the mini bus. For our residents who are less mobile we bring the shopping experience to the home for their convenience. We respect everyone's religious beliefs by providing visits from all denominations, such as Anglican, Catholic, working in conjunction with the local mosque and the Jewish community and providing religious interaction. We encourage our residents families to participate in all our activities, working alongside them to ensure we provide the best service possible here at Edgbaston Beaumont.
