Meet our Activities Coordinator, Keli Herriott-Sadler

Hi, my name is Keli and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Emily Jackson House. I am privileged to have such a rewarding job and am inspired by listening to residents' life stories. I am passionate about about improving their well-being by organising a varies activities programme.

It gives me such a thrill to make every day special and fun for residents. Finding something for everyone and making every day meaningful is always my goal!

Activities at Emily Jackson

Our activities team continues to offer a wide range of activities to both mentally and physically stimulate our residents. Our activities include one to one shopping, group outings in our minibus, and regularly attending our local church and bowling club. We also enjoy the entertainment from the musicians who come and visit us as well as our PAT dog. We have a range of activities so residents with all abilities and talents can join in activities and social gatherings. We encourage families and volunteers to share the joy with us by taking part in our social events as well.

Summer Fête

Staff, residents, relatives and the local community came together to enjoy an open day that was held at the home on Saturday 9th June. We hosted a variety of events and activities throughout the day, which included a visit from the ex-Mayor, live coverage of the Queen’s official birthday, a BBQ, a tombola stall and a performance from a West End singer. Everyone had a lot of fun!

Fun in the Sun

We have spent many happy afternoons in the garden over the recent weeks enjoying the sun and flowers. We have also been in the garden whilst listening to the Emily Jackson Choir.

Motivation & Co.

Wendy from Motivation & Co. came to visit and we had fun playing some catch games and doing a quiz. We all had a go at answering the questions, but Mable ended up winning.

Our Amazing Animal World

Resident, Edna, made a new friend when Our Amazing Animal World came to visit. Edna said that the lizard felt really smooth, like a handbag.
