Meet our Activities Coordinator, Kourtnei Hodson

My name is Kourtnei and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Laurel Bank. My role involves ensuring that residents have access to a varied activities programme, which is designed to meet their needs and help them reap the benefits of engaging physically and socially. 

I arrange entertainment and organise special events, such as birthdays and anniversaries. We invite singers, dancers and comedians and other entertainers for the benefit of residents. We also have regular trips out to various places of interest. 

Suggestions are always welcome and I am here to ensure that residents can live their life to the fullest here at Laurel Bank.

Activities at Laurel Bank

Activities are a fundamental part of a rich and varied lifestyle here at Laurel Bank Care Home, which is why we organise both physically and mentally stimulating social events for those we support. The weekly itinerary is ever-changing, and regularly includes art lessons, chair-based exercise, trips and visits from a variety of different animals, as well as one-to-one time for residents who prefer the peace and quiet. Our team actively tries to incorporate the hobbies and interests that are meaningful to residents into the activities schedule as encouragement to continue with much-loved pastimes.
