Meet our Activities Coordinator, Anita Webb
Anita Webb is our Head of Activities here at Juniper House. She joins us with a wealth of experience having worked in adult speech therapy, The Stroke Association and for the last three years at the Alzheimer’s Society.
Anita manages and delivers person centred activities for all our residents.
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
The local children from Beechborough School came to visit Juniper along with their head teacher to entertain the residents with Christmas carols.
Saturdays are always full of families visiting us here at Juniper and 3 generations from the Drewitt's family helped out with a creative session getting ready for Christmas.
Every Thursday Juniper House joins the Dementia friendly Brackley Choir event, held at our local school Winchester House, where we are getting ready for Christmas with carols and tunes.
Juniper celebrated Halloween by holding a party and throwing open our doors to the local community. Creative Mojo supplied the Halloween arts and crafts, while local vocalist, Floss, beautifully entertained guests, followed by fireworks and lots of trick or treaters joining in with the fun.
Soon to be 100!
Vi has been at Juniper House for over 4 years and will be celebrating her 100th birthday in early 2020. Vi holds a weekly poetry group and loves to get involved in Juniper life
