Meet our Activities Coordinator, Anastasia Goldsmith

Anastasia joined Hugh Myddelton in September 2016 as an Activities Coordinator. She has a Masters degree in Education and a background in Special Needs. She is a dedicated Activities Coordinator who has been instrumental in our home achieving dementia specialist accreditation. 

She has introduced new activities, such as pets as therapy, chair-based Zumba and Creative Minds therapeutic art sessions. Anastasia is passionate about continuous evaluation and research in activity provision to ensure that residents can live their lives to the fullest.

Activities at our home

Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.

Life at our home

Open Day

We love music and performers, so it was only natural to invite one of our favourite musicians for our open day on 21st April, who played the saxophone for residents and guests.

Here, we believe in music as a form of therapy, as it encourages movement, increases social activity and reduces stress.

The incomparable Sandra Grant came and wowed us as she always does whilst we sat back in our beautiful garden enjoying a lovely open day.

Creative Minds

Here at Hugh Myddelton House, we encourage residents to get involved in our Creative Minds sessions.

Creative Minds is a therapeutic art group that helps with cognitive impairment and it can also be adapted for those with physical impairments. Research shows that it is beneficial for stress management, anxiety and improving general well-being.

Residents are always proud of their work and can even enjoy a cup of tea and biscuits whilst painting.

Watch out for our upcoming art exhibition for our budding artists!
