Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Amanda Sutherland

Hi, my name is Amanda and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Lethen Park.

I started work here as a Carer before moving to my Activities Coordinator role. Myself and my Activities Assistant work together to create a bespoke programme of daily activities with lots of special events.

I am part of the Dementia Friendly Portlethen initiative and have agreed to become their treasurer. We aim to include Lethen Park in local events and often hold them here in the home as well. 

Activities at our home

Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.

Life at our home

School Play

Fishermoss Primary School had an end of term play and invited some residents from Lethen Park. Their theme was the Victorian era and how lives had changed for children since then.

The Greatest Show on Earth

Lethen Park residents had a great day out at the circus in Stonehaven. They finished the day off with a tasty fish supper.

Garden Opening

To celebrate the opening of our newly-refurbished garden, Lethen Park held a garden party for the local community. The sun shone and everyone had a great day.

We hosted a sports day recently. Residents were split into teams and chose country names associated with the World Cup teams. Argentina were the winning team and individual winners were rewarded with medals.
