Meet our Activities Coordinator, Angie, Heather, Beryl & Nikki

We organise a weekly events planner that consists of a variety of activities tailored to residents' individual likes and dislikes. 

Angie joined Fairview in 2014 as an Activities Coordinator, Heather joined in 2013, firstly as a Kitchen Assistant, then becoming part of the domestic team, before finally joining activities; Beryl joined Fairview in 2008 as a Carer before joining the activities team in 2013, and Nikki joined in 2016, firstly as a Carer.

We all work well together and support each other as a team.

Activities at our home

Our Activities Coordinators create a weekly planner that consists of a variety of activities, which caters to all residents' needs as best as possible. The most popular activities are bingo, which we host twice a week, flower arranging and weekly visits from Vinnie our pet therapy dog. Residents also enjoy minibus trips in the nicer weather and we attend a concert every month. We are also involved in the Council Well-being Team, which keeps us up-to date with upcoming events within the community and provides interesting ideas for activities we can try in the home.

Throughout the year, we host various special events, including themed open days and summer and winter fetes that people in our local communities are welcome to join us for. We also have monthly church services with Rev. Ann from Danestone Congregational Church, which is open to loved ones as well.
