Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Kelly Scott

Hello, my name is Kelly Scott, and I’ve been organising activities at Lindum House since 2015 and I really enjoy the pleasure I get from doing it. I previously worked on a Memory Lane community as a Carer in a different Barchester home for 4 years, supporting individuals living with dementia.

Activities at Lindum House

Our fantastic Activities Coordinators make sure that there is a full programme of social events to suit all interests and capabilities. They aim to not only to stimulate, but to ensure that everyone involved has lots of fun. We enjoy trips out visiting local places of interest or just to explore, which inevitably ends up with us having a lovely lunch somewhere.

There are regular concerts that we hold in the home that allows us to have a good old singalong, and our community links include the local churches, knit and natter groups and toddler groups coming in to see residents.

On a daily basis, everyone enjoys a variety of activities, including quizzes, bingo, arts and crafts, reminiscing and movement to music. We also host movie afternoons on the big screen which, of course, involves popcorn and ice cream at the interval!

Any residents who are unable to join us in the communal areas for activities have one-to-one time in their rooms, with us either reading to them, chatting or anything else they wish to do that’s within their capabilities.

Life at our home

Furry Friends

We always like to welcome pets into the home here at Lindum. Here is Emma the dog visiting her beloved family member; not only does it fill her owner with joy, but staff and other residents really love the visits as well.

Movie Time

A while back, residents suggested movies they would like to see again on the big screen, with one of them being Summer Holiday starring Cliff Richard. On hearing this, Margaret's family, pictured above, came in a few days later and kindly donated the film, along with others suggested. We were thrilled and would like to say a big thank you to Margaret and her wonderful family.

Spreading the Love

Here at Lindum House, we decorated our heart shaped cookies and had lots off messy fun. Our lovely lady, Dorothy, also suggested we spread our love and our appreciation to the wonderful staff by giving them a cookie iced with a kiss. All our staff were given a cookie to say a big thank you for all they do.
