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.

My focus is to ensure that residents can lead a satisfying and stimulating lifestyle. I will always endeavour to provide a varied and meaningful activities programme for those we support.

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

Here at the Glenroyd our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. Everyone is different and gets pleasure from different things and here at Glenroyd we understand that and therefore try to provide a programme of activity that is tailored to individuals needs. We do this by gathering information and life history work and using that information to feed into our activities schedule. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.

We had an amazing performance from the Grand Dame Theatre, who put on a show of Alice in Wonderland. They had everyone tapping their toes and shouting along with the performance. We cannot wait for our 'Oliver!' and Mary Poppins show!
