Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lynn Amiri

I am married with 2 children and 2 rather annoying rescue cats. I have worked in a variety of roles, from office administration to peer mediation in a local school.

I lived in Italy for a number of years and love all Italian food, especially when somebody else cooks it for me!

I love to read, especially crime novels. I am a regular theatre goer with a passion for musicals. I like to sing and dance (albeit badly!).

Activities at Leonard Lodge

Our activities team offer a wide range of social events, from the very popular Friday morning bingo, to gentle exercise sessions, skittles, regular animal visits and arts & crafts sessions. We are fortunate to have a team of volunteers who stop by weekly to provide additional support, allowing residents the opportunity for one-to-one sessions. These sessions could include anything, even something as simple as playing a game of Scrabble or just having a cup of tea and a chat. We believe that it is essential to support people in such a way that they are able to continue to live full and happy lives doing the things that they enjoy.

Life at our home

The Ladybirds Return

We were really happy to welcome Leonard Lodge favourites, The Ladybirds, into our home again. As always, the ladies put on a dazzling display of song and dance routines from the 1940s through to the 1980s. The residents loved singing along and everybody agreed it was a great performance.

Beach Party

Residents and their loved ones enjoyed a Hawaiian beach party to celebrate this year's long, hot summer. Everybody enjoyed the fruit platters and the mocktails, including Drivers Punch and Mango Coolers, and there was dancing and lots of singing along to entertainer, Dave Moore.

Bollywood Glamour

The residents enjoyed some Bollywood glamour when Vidya came and gave us a traditional Indian dance performance. We all loved the costumes and everyone joined in.

Get Growing

Our gardener, Tomas, has set up a vegetable patch in our courtyard garden. The residents have been watching everything growing and have been looking forward to eating the tasty fruit and veg. Unfortunately, the squirrels got to the strawberries before we did and now we have discovered a massive invasion of caterpillars, who are eating the cabbages. We have high hopes for the tomatoes and have agreed that we will leave the caterpillars to it, in the hope we will see dozens of beautiful butterflies.
