Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jessica Porter

My Longueville Court life started in 1996 when the home first opened. I'm proud to say that I was one of the first carers to work on our fantastic Skylark unit.

After leaving Longueville Court to care for my new family, I returned to work in 2013 and took on a new role of the Activities Coordinator, which is now known as the Head of Activities & Lifestyle.

I challenge myself every day to provide the residents I support with a varied and interesting programme that engages them fully in the process. My ongoing aim is to produce life enhancing experiences for all by offering a programme that includes one-to-one sessions, musical experiences and group activities that encourage interaction with other residents.

I am proud to be part of a team that produces a fun and enjoyable programme that caters for every individual's needs and enhances every resident's time at Longueville Court.

Our activities coordinators are committed to organising a variety of activities that reflect the interests and capabilities for everybody we support ensuring a person centred approach.

The team have a flexible approach to our programme and we are constantly reviewing and updating our programmes to ensure we cater for everyone's needs and varied abilities.

The activities programme includes regular trips utilising the homes minibus, these include a number of destinations of local interest. We are particularly proud of the relationship we have built with Peterborough Sailability. This registered charity offers the opportunities to those with restricted mobility to enjoy the thrill of sailing on the open water and the sense of independence that brings in specially adapted boats.

Involvement in the local community is something that the whole team are very passionate about and we provide regular visits to a number of different facilities including local schools and churches. These activities also extend too visits from "Pat dogs" and local entertainers to aid in our ongoing quest to give each individual as much support and stimulation as they require.

Valentine's Day

Longueville Court was filled with love, flowers and romance this Valentine’s Day.

Residents, Les and Doris, celebrated the day of love with a romantic meal of their favourite fish and chip dinner.

Doris and Les met in the summer of 1940 whilst holidaying with their parents in Scarborough when they were just 18 years old. They married in August 1944 and celebrated their 76th Valentine's Day together at the grand old age of 96 years. They have two children, six grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.

Staff at Longueville wanted to do something special for them and today has shown them that you are never too old for love. Doris and Les told staff that it has been a lovely day and brought back wonderful memories of them holidaying in Scarborough and having fish and chips in the car!

Santa's Grotto

Residents had a magical and festive day recently when they were visited by Santa and his reindeers. Staff, residents and loved ones got into the Christmas spirit when they were joined by local pre-school children who were thrilled to be invited to take part in the day.

The children enjoyed seeing Santa in his grotto and received an early Christmas present and also had their photo taken with the reindeer. It was lovely to see all residents interacting with the children and everyone was very happy that they could share their special day with them.
