Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sue Mumford

Hi, my name is Sue and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Forest Care Home. I have worked here since 2016, starting as a Senior Carer and then taking on the role of Activities Coordinator. My aim is to create meaningful activities and events that are person-centered, with the aim of stimulating residents both physically and mentally. 

Activities at Forest Care Home

We have regular outings in our minibus to different places of interest including local country parks, the Tramway museum, Matlock and a number of Ice cream parlours. When we are not out on trips we are busy baking, making different craft projects, using the sensory equipment and Pet Therapy. We have entertainers who come in and get our residents up and moving.

Activities are one of the most important aspects of a care home, so it is essential that our team are dedicated to ensuring that residents are entertained, and that life at Forest Care Home is fun and active. The activities at Forest Care Home are planned to be person centred and adapted to cater for everyone's abilities and all staff participate. For example one of our residents enjoys house work and everyday she assists the housekeepers to tidy around the unit.
