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 co-ordinator 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.

National Puzzle Day

On National Puzzle Day, we all got together to try and complete this fiendishly difficult puzzle. Despite our best efforts and the help of passing staff and visitors, we didn't manage to get it finished on the day, but we had fun trying!

A Christmas Surprise

Adam and Greenwood of Billericay sent Santa, his elf and their dogs to visit us. They brought presents for all the residents, but we all agreed that the best part was stroking Max and Lily, the lovely dogs, although young Santa was quite a hit as well. Many thanks to John and his son.

General Manager of the Year

Tibi Ionescu has been crowned 'General Manager of the Year' at the Barchester Care Awards 2017.

Tibi was appointed General Manager of Leonard Lodge after it had been given a 'Requires Improvement' rating by the CQC and, in a short space of time, has turned the home around, so much so, that, at it's last CQC inspection, it was given an overall 'Good' rating! He has earned the respect of his whole team and has shown he's willing to do all that it takes – even personally working nurse shifts!

Volunteers at Leonard Lodge

We were joined by volunteers from Ford Credit Europe for a day of Christmas tree decorating, mug painting and creating decorations. Residents had a great day; we have some excellent decorations and we think Ford's staff enjoyed it as well.

We've got a brand new look!

We celebrated the opening of our newly-refurbished Memory Lane community with a garden party. There was a falconry display by Eden Falconry, entertainment with Billy Blue Rondo and cheese and wine, but everybody agreed that the star was the newly-refurbished unit.

Hopefield Animal Sanctuary

Residents enjoyed a trip out to Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood. We were given a tour by volunteer Devon who was able to answer all our questions and showed great enthusiasm for her role. The residents particularly enjoyed stroking the Angora ferret. We finished the visit off with a well earned cup of tea.
