Meet our Activities Coordinator, Margaret Watt

Hi, my name is Margaret, and I am the Head of Activities here at Lanercost House.

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.

Elf Day

Some of the staff at Lanercost House celebrated Elf Day and dressed up as – you guessed it – elves to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society. Lots of fun and games were had throughout the home. Residents really loved the great efforts and elf costumes that the staff wore.
