Meet our Activities Coordinator, Danielle Crawford
I joined Latimer Court in 2018 as a Hostess and I have over 10 year experience in providing nutritional food and drink, after spending time with the residents I realised that I would like to be more hands on and give 1-2-1 care so I joined the activities team as an Activities Coordinator.
I’m passionate to learn more about each resident and I enjoy making a big difference to our resident’s lives whether it’s a trip to Marks and Spencer’s or just taking a walk around the garden or just a chat 1-2-1 or as a group, passionate about providing a varied and high-quality activity schedule, we work hard on connecting our residents to the local community; organising day trips and social events.
Activities at Latimer Court
Here at Latimer Court, we have a varied social programme that includes themed events once a month, painting classes, day trips out, exercise classes and arts & crafts, to name but a few. We strive to tailor our activities to suit everyone's needs, and update our notice boards weekly so that all families and visitors can see what their loved ones have been up to. Our aim is to make sure that those we support can enjoy a happy and fulfilled stay with us. You can take a look at some of our regular activities by clicking here.
Life at our home
Poetry of Love on Valentine's Day
Several of our lovely residents at Latimer Court spent time reciting 'poems of love' to all on Valentine's Day. We thank you all lady’s for making the day so very special.
Getting Romantic with Creative Mojo
Our residents enjoyed making decorative symbols of love including glitter and painted hearts for display on Valentine’s Day with our guest activities team from Creative Mojo.
Trip to Worcester Cathedral
Many of our residents took the opportunity to visit the hugely popular Christmas Tree Festival at Worcester Cathedral to view the glittering Christmas trees which lined the medieval cloister created by local businesses, charities, schools and community groups. A spectacular event enjoyed by all.
Cotswold Vale Alpacas visit
What a fantastic day! Our residents were visited by this cute pair of Alpacas from Cotswold Vale; they wondered through the home meeting guests in their rooms and communal areas to spread Christmas cheer. "Cosmo" has been at Latimer Court before and seemed very happy to meet Dorothy again who presented him with a personalised biscuit!
Knit and Natter Christmas Decorations
During December our Knit and Natter group produced some beautiful Christmas tree decorations and hand-made gifts for sale at our Christmas fair.
Residents, resident families and staff all had an amazing time at Latimer Court Care Home as they lit up the skies over Worcester with an amazing Fireworks Spectacular to remember the Guy Fawkes Gunpowder Plot. All who took part had an amazing evening watching the fireworks display whilst enjoying hotdogs, hot casseroles along with warming hot drinks and cakes a plenty.
Everyone who took part had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and welcome a bigger and better display next year in 2020.
