Meet our Activities Coordinator, David Sanders
My role here is to provide meaningful activities to residents living at Falmouth Court. Every person is unique so it will be my passion to identify a resident’s interests and hobbies then deliver a person centred activities plan that meets their needs.
I am passionate about arts, music and craft activities and will incorporate these creative interests into our program. Engaging residents with the local community and providing trips out and about in the local area will also be important to provide stimulation for our residents here.
My own background is maritime based as a boat builder, teacher and sailing instructor within the local community. I very much enjoy working within a team and providing enrichment to the lives of residents in a care environment.
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.
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
Life at Falmouth Court Care Home
Visit from ‘Reggie’ one of our PAT (Pets as Therapy) Dogs
Our residents had a lovely visit with ‘Reggie’ one of our PAT (Pets as Therapy) dogs over the weekend. Reggie always gets our residents smiling and loves to give everyone some love and affection.
Animal therapy is such an important activity that we try and encourage as often as possible here at Falmouth Court.
Another lovely trip to the beach for the residents of Falmouth Court. We loaded up the minibus and took advantage of the sun while we still have it. Everyone enjoy a lovely coffee from Gylly Beach Café while watching people swim in the sea. Our residents could not quite believe that people were still braving the cold sea! We love top be able to provide such life enriching activities here at Falmouth Court and our residents thoroughly enjoy their trips out into the local community.
Cards for Grandparents Day
Today, Hugh our Home Services Advisor delivered a bunch of these fabulous Barchester cards to Happy Days Nurseries & Pre-Schools Falmouth.

National Dog Day
We had a wonderful afternoon celebrating National Dog Day at the end of last week. A big thank you to the local community for bringing in their dogs to visit with our residents.
There was a lovely feast of nibbles for both humans and their furry friends along with some balls which our residents enjoyed playing catch with the dogs.
Then everyone enjoyed the voice of young singer Lilly who came and performed for everyone.
K9 Crusaders - Funds Raised
So we managed to raise £250 with our dog show in aid of K9 Crusaders Dog Welfare they raised an additional £87 from their Tombola too. And they received another donation the day I popped in as a result of the dog show.
