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.

Football Fever

We have been celebrating the World Cup here at Glenroyd. We've been watching all the games with refreshments. It brings everyone together; we have a lot of football fans, so it really is amazing when we all get together to enjoy the game together.

Stanley Park

We enjoyed a trip to the beautiful Stanley Park. We had a walk around all the flower gardens and the lake. Resident, Harold, used to work at Stanley Park, so it brought back a lot of memories for him.

Dancing with Dementia

We attended the ‘Dancing with Dementia’ event at the Blackpool Winter Gardens. It was an absolute joy to be able to share this with 25 of our residents. We all had such an amazing day, making lots of new friends and dancing until we couldn’t anymore. Everyone had a brilliant day!
