Meet our Activities Coordinator, June Terry

June has many years of experience in the care sector. She was a Carer for her late husband, who had multiple sclerosis and recently to her mother, who lives with Alzheimer's.

June hopes to bring her diverse experiences to this role and engage residents with bespoke activities.

Activities at Lanercost House

Our dedicated Activities Coordinators offer a wide range of mentally and physically stimulating activities for residents and families to enjoy. There are regular outings in the minibus to places of interest, such as local cafes, garden centres and parks, as well as visits from entertainers, musicians and singers - and also from PAT dogs. We host various events, such as themed days, cheese & wine evenings, in addition to offering one-to-one activity sessions, including pampering, games and puzzles. Our activities staff strive to ensure residents participate in any way they can with activities that reflect their capabilities and interests.

Easter Celebrations

We had lots of fun celebrating Easter here at Lanercost; we adorned our walls with seasonal decorations and provided lots of easter eggs for residents. We also held a raffle with lots of prizes and managed to raise £61 for our residents' fund.

Snowed In

Northern Gas Networks volunteered to clear footpaths and roads surrounding local care homes. They have just visited Lanercost and cleared our car park and entrance paths, making it safer for important health visitors and relatives to access the home.

Our chef thanked them with bacon sandwiches and cuppas all round. Thanks to everyone who came; it was much-appreciated by us all.
