Gemma Birch

Activities Coordinator

Hi, my name is Gemma and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Hilderstone Hall.

I am 27 years old, when I left college (where I trained for 3 years to be a chef straight from school), I perused my career for 6 years as a cook at Staffordshire police, until I went on to work in mental health, with Autism being a huge part of my career in adults and children. I have always been so passionate about wanting to make people happy in their lives.

I came to Hilderstone in 2017 as a carer, mainly specialising in dementia, memory lane. I finished my NVQ2 in health and social care here also. I have built many fantastic relationships with all our residents over the 18 months, so to have the opportunity as an activities coordinator gives me great hope for my exciting future ahead with the residents here.
