Meet our Activities Coordinator, Katy Mitchell

Hi, my name is Katy and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Kenwyn. I have worked at Kenwyn since 2010, previously as a Care Assistant, until I transferred to the activities department in early 2018, and was eventually promoted to Activities Coordinator in the same year.

I am a very bubbly person and my goal each day is to put a smile on people’s faces. I am very versatile and love the variety of what my role brings.

My aim is to ensure that each and every person living here enjoys meaningful activities and has the best quality of life at Kenwyn.

My passion is reminiscence and making sure wishes come true. I organise cheese and wine afternoons, quizzes, themed days, pet therapy sessions and much more. Not only do I arrange trips out and group activities, but also one-to-one sessions with residents.

I am always here to chat and open to new suggestions.

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

Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

We are now 10-60-06 accredited!

Kenwyn has achieved accreditation for a new standard of dementia care, which was developed by dementia care specialists at Barchester.

The 10-60-06 dementia programme will replace Barchester's current dementia care programme in order to ensure that the care services provided by our Memory Lane communities for people living with dementia are the best in the sector.
