Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Victoria Hunt

I’m Vicky and I have been working here at Kingfisher Lodge since April 2016. I began my career at Barchester working in the kitchen, but I soon realised that I wanted to spend more time with residents.

I’ve been a florist for over 10 years and enjoy showing residents my creative side.

I organise events, guest entertainers, all of our daily activities and one-to-one sessions for those who prefer not to join in with group activities.

I really enjoy this role and love coming to work.

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.

Come and join us at our Open Day

Meet our dedicated team on Saturday 20th October, who can answer any questions you may have about our home.

Horticultural Session

'Alive' hosted a horticultural session at Kingfisher Lodge. Great fun was had by all as we planted pansies and made lavender bags. We even got to keep all our creations!

Memory Walk

We decided that we wanted to take part in a memory walk to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. All residents and the team who wanted to raise money walked around the grounds in the drizzly rain and every member of staff on that day sponsored a resident. We raised just under £80!
