Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Tatum Bennie

In the role of Head of Activities, I am focused on ensuring that residents can continue to enjoy existing hobbies and interests, but also pursue new avenues of stimulation and activity. I am always looking to bring new experiences and means of engagement to the home. At Kenwyn our person-centered approach allows us to make every resident feel valued and comfortable enough to express themselves however they need to.

As part of our activities schedule, we enjoy flower arranging, trips out in the minibus, reminiscence & sensory sessions, musical entertainment, gardening and much more. I like to involve loved ones as much as I can by inviting them in to share life stories or even just to have a cup of tea in the sunshine in our beautiful gardens.

My goal is to ensure that every person living at Kenwyn feels confident enough to make independent decisions and that each of them has a robust choice of activities and interests to choose from. I am always open to suggestions, so if you do have any, please do not hesitate to let me know.

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.

Easter Fair

We were joined by Kenwyn's very own Easter bunny, who helped everyone enjoy our Easter Fair. Children loved the fun-filled afternoon that had lots of chocolate and colouring sessions.
