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.

Chistmas Baking

We had so much fun creating our Christmas cake for the Barchester Christmas Cake Competition. Creating and cutting out all the individual decorations was the best part, and we could not be more proud of our creation.

Halloween Entertainment

We enjoyed a singalong with DEJA 2, a duo act who never fails to entertain us and get our toes tapping and hands clapping. It was a great way to end our Halloween party.

Quiz King

We would like to take the time to thank Colin, who we call call 'Quiz King', as he has been leading our weekly quiz mornings by creating his own quizzes for our group activity. This always gets everyone's minds going for the day, and we learn lots of things we didn’t know before.
