Meet our Activities Coordinator, Wayne Clifford-Lund

My Name is Wayne Clifford-Lund and I am the Activities Coordinator at Laurel Bank. Many will already know me from when I was a Carer, before I became the Activities Coordinator.

My role is to ensure that residents get as much fulfillment from activities as they can, and that our programme is tailored to the needs of those we support and that they can get as much out of it as possible.

I also arrange for entertainers, such as singers or dancers, to come into the home and organise any special events, including birthdays or any other occasion that residents want to celebrate.

I welcome any suggestions from residents or family members in relation to activities. If residents have a special request or requirement, then I will endeavour to do my utmost to ensure these are requests are met.

I am here to ensure that residents who come to Laurel Bank, or those already here, get the joy, happiness and reassurance they deserve.

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.
