I started my career with Barchester in 2012 as a carer with in the memory lane community with 5 years experience in the care industry previous also achieving an NVQ in Hospitality and in April of this year resumed the role of Senior Activities Coordinator.
We all know that keeping active is important and me and my team are here to ensure that residents experience an environment that is both stimulating and socially active. The home has its own mini bus for our numerous trips out to various local places of interest.
I try to provide a monthly schedule which is varied and interesting for the Residents at Iddenshall Hall. I am always asking the Residents to contribute their own ideas to the schedule so that we can ensure we are providing a service they are happy with. Our schedule currently includes activities such as Flower Arranging, Bingo, Quiz Club, Book Club, Walking Club, Pampering days in our in-house Salon, Exercise Classes, Animal Visits, Musical Entertainers, Poetry Afternoons, Indoor Games, Themed Days and More...
It is a privilege to work with the Residents we have here at Iddenshall Hall, there is a great mix of personalities which makes every day very different and also enjoyable. I am proud to work for Barchester and to be part of the Iddenshall Hall Team, I strive to make our Residents as happy as possible in any way I can.
