Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sue Bestwick

Sue arranges activities and outings for our residents and makes each day as interesting and stimulating as possible for them. Sue's bubbly enthusiasm and determination to put a smile on people's faces is a real asset to Forest Hill. Sue is always keen to get family members involved too so that they can share happy, fulfilled and quality moments with their loved ones.

Activities at Forest Hill

We are a team of four activity organisers here at Forest Hill. We have a wide range of activities within the home including: musical entertainment, Arts & Crafts, Clubs for like minded people such as flower arranging and gardening, board games, baking (where the best bit is the eating afterwards!), and we celebrate special events throughout the year, such Easter, Mothers Day & Fathers Day and Christmas. We also have trips out on a regular basis using our own minibus, where we find out places of interest each person would like to visit. One of our more popular trips is to the local ice cream farm. We recently fulfilled one of our ladies dreams to visit the Chelsea Flower Show, something she had always wanted to do.

For our ladies and gentlemen who are nursed in bed, we have one to one times, which may be hand or foot massage or reading, & listening to music. We encourage families to get as involved as they can with activities and outings and have recently created a Terrace Cafe area, where visiting families can take their loved one for tea & biscuits and spend valuable time together.

Forest Hill at the Circus

Residents were really keen to visit the circus when it came to Worksop. Our Administrator and her assistant volunteered to take some residents for an exciting evening out with a difference! They absolutely loved the experience and cheered all the way through.

Thanks you to Lou and Matty for making the evening so special for residents.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

We had a lovely morning at Forest Hill raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, which was enjoyed by residents and staff alike. Due to the marvellous late September sunshine, we were able to have our coffee and cake outside. We raised just over £100 for a fantastic cause and we really enjoyed eating the lovely cakes.

Ice Cream for All!

We had our local ice cream van here recently because of the heat wave. Manfredi’s were very kind in making an extra stop here at Forest Hill to help keep residents, relatives and staff cool! We were all very grateful to them. They’ll be making a weekly stop to us whilst the good weather lasts!
