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.

Baking Club

We hold a regular Baking Club and, recently, we were making muffins, double chocolate cakes and cookies. Residents loved helping each other out to bake these treats for our afternoon tea.

Easter Crafts

Easter time is all about having fun! We have enjoyed many sessions of arts and crafts, creating cards, bonnets, decorations, and cakes whilst reminiscing about our past Easter celebrations. The residents have loved puzzles and quizzes related to Easter and we are excited for our Easter coffee morning to taste our yummy homemade cake!

Afternoon Tea Party

Each week, we hold an afternoon tea party and decide what theme we should base it around. Most recently, it was all about exploring new teas and how beneficial they can be for us. A lot of us learned about teas we didn’t even know existed and why it’s important to keep hydrated.

Fun Fruit Friday

We all loved celebrating Nutrition & Hydration Week; on each day, there was a different theme. Friday was 'Fun Fruit Friday; everyone loved exploring all the different flavours and textures of different fruits and had fun creating the platter and dishing the fruit pots out to everyone.

Nursery Visit

We were recently joined by children from our local nursery. It was such a lovely time for the residents and children; they had lots of fun creating pictures and getting to know each other. We have now decided, because it went so well, that we will be having weekly visits from them.
