Meet our Activities Coordinators, Marie Crainey & Eileen Orr

Marie and Eileen are two of our Activity Coordinators.  They have 21 and 20 years-service respectively. Marie has been in the role since joining the company and Eileen recently joined the activity team although she was often involved in social events when working with the housekeeping team. They provide a varied and entertaining schedule for everyone’s taste and needs and enjoy every minute of it.

Activities at Four Hills

Our activity and lifestyle programme is arranged for all our residents to participate in and is updated regularly based on ideas from our residents group during our resident forum. Our Resident of the Day strategy ensures each person receives at least one day each month where the focus is all about them.

We have a monthly concert and to date this is appreciated and enjoyed by most residents. The Four Hills Taverns is open for business every Friday afternoon and is an area where residents and staff socialise, hold pub quizzes and partake in a little refreshment.

The team at Four Hills try hard to meet everyone's needs and encourage all residents and their families to join in the fun.

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 Four Hills Care Home

Four Hills supports local Charity

Four Hills were delighted to recently present Nemo Arts Glasgow with a cheque for £500 to towards art activity materials for this charity that supports people in recovery from poor mental health.

Nemo Arts focus on improving mental health and wellbeing, the knowledge and understanding of mental illness in the wider community and to reduce the stigma and isolation associated with poor mental health. Nemo Arts work with adults in recovery from poor mental health. People can be referred through mental health services like the NHS or community mental health teams, psychiatric nurses, and occupational therapists.

The grant had been awarded by Barchester’s Charitable Foundation, a charity that helps older people and adults with a disability or mental health problems across England, Scotland and Wales by offering grants to help people connect or re-connect with others in their local community.
