Meet our Activities Coordinator, Charlotte Govier

My name is Charlotte and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Hethersett Hall. I started as an Activities & Care Assistant in April 2018 and, later in the year, I was offered the amazing opportunity to be the Activities Coordinator.

I’m so happy to be a part of the team here at Hethersett Hall, as I’ve always wanted to work with elderly people; it’s something I hold very close to my heart. I will strive to support and care for all residents in a way that best suits each individual and try my very best to make them smile every day!

Activities at our home

Activities, hobbies and interests make up the most important part of our days and who we are as people. We provide a varied activities programme that reflects the interests and capabilities of all the individuals we support. All of the group and individual activities are designed to not only mentally and physically stimulate the people we care for, but to enhance their life skills and feelings of purpose and self-worth. We achieve this through a constantly updated activities programme and one-to-one sessions with residents that are tailored to suit individuals needs. We also offer a range of outings in our mini-bus.

Getting Ready for Christmas

The staff & residents of Hethersett Hall were very busy at the weekend decorating our beautiful home. Residents enjoyed reminiscing as we worked and it was really nice to share memories together.

We have lots of exciting events and activities coming up, and we hope to give residents a very special Christmas filled with lots of love and laughter.

Word Games

Some residents got together earlier this week to play a game of Scrabble with a nice cup of tea. It was lovely to see them all engaging and laughing together. Perhaps this could be the start of a new club? Watch this space!

Pyjama Day

Staff had a comfy day in their Pyjamas to raise money for Children in Need. We also took part in the Duck Race Sweepstake, which was shown on the Children in Need Facebook page. We had prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. We all had lots of fun and raised money for a very good cause! A big thank you to everyone involved.

Sharing Stories

We had a lovely afternoon with two gentlemen from The Royal British Legion. They joined us for Remembrance Day and brought in lots of photos to show us. It was really nice for everyone to share stories about their lives and to hear others too!

Bonfire Night Spectacular

Residents, family, friends and staff all came together to share a wonderful evening of Bonfire Night celebrations. The evening started off with a delicious buffet that our chefs Donna and Tony prepared.

Afterwards, we all wrapped up warm and went outside to watch a fire dancing performance and firework display. There were lots of “ooohs” and “aaahs” from the crowd. We all returned inside to the warm lounge, where we were entertained by Splash Duo, who got us all singing and dancing – they were amazing!

The home was filled which such a fantastic atmosphere and we all had a great evening. We'd like to say a very special thank you to all who visited and the staff at Hethersett Hall for all their hard work in making the evening such a success!

Happy Halloween!

Our lovely chef displayed lots of spooky treats for supper, including pumpkin soup from a cauldron! The staff and some residents enjoyed dressing in Halloween costumes, from Dracula to witches and even a zombie hippy. In the afternoon, we played pumpkin bowling and witch toss and, of course, everyone got lots of sweets for taking part. We all had a great time celebrating Halloween!
