Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sarah Taylor
Sarah joined the team in 2021 as the Activities Coordinator at Llys-Y-Tywysog. Sarah has a back ground in care and brings with her lots of new ideas for activities and events at Llys-Y-Tywysog. Sarah is looking forward to delivering a varied programme of activities to meet the resident needs and enhance wellbeing.
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.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies
Life at Llys-Y-Tywysog Care Home
Never too Old to Learn!
We are never too old to learn something new and Betty at 100 years young is proving this. It was Betty's first time making shortbread so Angela guided Betty through the bake. It is always so nice to see our residents interacting together, there are such firm friendships made at Llys-Y-Tywysog. The ladies are very fortunate David enjoys tidying up after (and of course eating the end results!)
Glorious Weather for Outside Entertainment
We couldn't have picked a better day for entertainment in the gardens, it was glorious, not a cloud in the sky. Llys-Y-Tywysog residents always love the opportunity to sing and dance and with Stephanie Evan's variety of tunes everyone joined in. Thank you Stephanie for entertaining us all.
Residents enjoyed a relaxing craft morning creating and painting flowers for the family trees. Craft activities are always popular at Llys-Y-Tywysog, there is a real sense of attention to detail for this project that means so much to everyone. "Life is beautiful. It's about giving. It's about family" Walt Disney.
Sensory Seed Kits
Thank you very much to Kate Webb from Home Instead, Swansea for dropping off their donation of Sensory Seed Kits. The Llys-Y-Tywysog's residents looking forward to sowing these seeds, tending them and watching them grow.
I Name That Tune in..........
It was fantastic to see so many residents at our music quiz. At our latest resident's meeting there were requests for more quizzes so the team have been working on some new ideas.
Family is always in all our hearts and Sarah been creating family trees for our residents. This thoughtful idea has been bought to reality by placing family members on the tree in resident rooms. It is a wonderful project, which has bought back memories and also is a great conversation opener for all. Next time for example a new nurse visits they could look at the tree and chat to the resident about their family. It will be exciting when we can add new arrivals as well.
