Meet our Activities Coordinator, June Terry

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.

This is us saying goodbye and good luck to another of our wonderful carers—Ashleigh Wright—who also left to go on maternity leave recently. We wish Ashleigh all the best for the safe arrival of her baby boy, and we are all going to miss her.

A Fond Farewell

We all said farewell to Cara Giovannini, one of our wonderful carers, who left to start maternity recently. Cara has been amazing throughout and only took one day off during her pregnancy. We all wish her and the little one the best and hope she enjoys every minute. We can’t wait to meet baby!

Pub Lunch

Katie and Lindsay, two of our amazing carers, dedicated their day off to taking out three residents for a pub lunch. As you can see, it was smiles all round, and everyone had a lovely time. We are proud to have such wonderful staff who take it upon themselves to do things like this in their own time.
