Meet our Activities Coordinator, Bobby Gallagher

My name is Bobby and I have the great privilege of working at Lakeside Care Home as the Activities Coordinator.

My job is fun and very rewarding – and I love it! I regularly invite musicians, artists, bell ringers, gardeners, chefs, and various other entertainers into the home to bring joy to the lives of residents who are living here.

Activities at Lakeside

Our activities staff each bring their own strengths to the table here at Lakeside, which results in a varied list of social events being offered to residents. We have regular outings to restaurants for lunches, afternoon tea & cakes, and through the summer months, we have beach trips with ice cream and picnics, which residents request regularly. On a weekly basis, there is a variety of sports, musical entertainment, hairdressing, one-to-one sessions, exercise programmes, quizzes and PAT dogs available to those we support. On Monday morning each resident receives an activities programme for the week's events and can opt in and out of what they want.

Training at Lakeside

Staff members at Lakeside enjoy developing their skills and have a dedicated trainer on site who will teach and update them on various emergency situations.

Our ethos is that all our staff will be trained to respond to an emergency situation, should it arise.
