Meet our Activities Coordinator, Chelsea Boyd
Hello, my name is Chelsea and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Glenroyd; I arrange all of the activities at the home.
I worked as a Care Assistant here before taking on my current role and I feel privileged to be a part of such a lovely home.

I absolutely love my job role and enjoy a challenge. It is a great blessing to improve a person’s quality of life and see someone smile because of you.
Activities at Glenroyd
