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.

Aberdeen Kiltwalk

On Sunday 3rd June, seven members of staff took part in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk to raise money for the resident' fund. Although the girls walked 26 miles and were very sore afterwards, they all want to do it again next year. Well done!

Beside the Seaside

As the weather has been glorious, we took a few residents to the beach for an ice cream – and they were delicious!

Senior Health & Fitness Day

On Senior Health & Fitness Day, the staff and residents went on a big walk. The pavements have been lowered in our area to make the area dementia-friendly for all.

Royal Wedding Celebrations

To commemorate the royal wedding, a local bakery ran a competition, where they would donate 5 wedding cakes to the local homes with the most votes on their Facebook page. Lethen Park were thrilled to come second over the whole of Aberdeenshire.

The activities ladies and two residents collected the cake from O’Caykx Bakery to say thank you for such a kind gesture.

We also hosted our own wedding the rival the royal couple. Staff and residents dressed up to mark the occasion with cake and party.
