Meet our Activities Coordinator, Liz Maxwell

Hi my name is Liz, I have worked at “The Manor” for over 10 years.  We have created a wonderful culture within the home and we work together to give residents the best possible experience. We place a big importance on completing individual booklets with each new resident aptly titled “Getting to know you” 

I am here to ensure that residents enjoy an environment that is both stimulating and socially active. We ensure the team knows each residents' preferences, so that we can deliver a person-centered program of events and activities. Essential to our homely feel is the strong relationships of trust we build with residents and their families and friends. The home also has its very own minibus for our numerous outings for coffee and shopping, which residents love.  Popular day trips include our annual canal barge adventure, shopping trips to M&S and mini bus trips to the seaside at Llandudno.

Outside of work I like to take trips to the farm in Anglesey with my family where we visit the beach & being a foodie I also love going to restaurants.

We understand that the people we support have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events are organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.

Activities and Events Partnerships

As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies
