Hi my name is Lauren Johns and I am the activities coordinator here at Hafan Y Coed. I have worked here since late 2016 starting my career here as a care assistant and then moving onto my current job role to help bring a different type of care and give our residents daily enjoyment.
We have a range of activities which take place in and out of the home. Trips out to the local beaches to get an ice-cream or even to a local café to get a cup of tea and cake happen regular. We have our very own singing and dancing sessions which the residents love along with booked concerts.
There is also a range of activities that go on within the home also like our arts and crafts sessions, reminisces sessions and more. We are forever pushing the boundaries of what activities we offer to our residents.
