Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Brenda Wilson

Working here at Friston House is a very rewarding job. Every day is varied, from organising our regular trips out on our specially-adapted minibus, to dancing with residents to Hollywood classics. We provide all kinds of in-house entertainment, including a variety of singers and live performances, a visit from the PAT dog and lots of quizzes and Bingo sessions. Those residents who remain in bed are not excluded and, where possible, we try to make sure they have some sort of stimulating interaction to brighten their day. There is always something to do at Friston House.

Activities at Friston House

Our activity coordinators are constantly working to stimulate our residents both mentally and physically by organising group and individual activities for every one within the home to participate in. We have regular outings in our mini bus to various attractions within the area and in the summer we like to take our residents to the seaside, where they can enjoy fish and chips by the beach. Our activity programme is just one of the important aspects of the care home and we try our best to arrange the activities that our residents will enjoy.

With lots of dancing and singing, laughter was not in short supply. Thank you to everyone who came to the party.
