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.

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.

Easter Celebrations

We were recently visited by some four-legged friends, much to the delight of residents, families, staff and members of our local community.

Easter lambs joined us as part of our festive activities programme and the local community were invited to be part of the fun. Residents were able to feed and pet the lambs and the adorable things relaxed on their laps. The Phoenix Children's Foundation, which provided the experience, works closely with us and help to provide a number of therapeutic activities for residents.

We are always looking for new and innovative ways to give those we support the best experiences and quality of life. The lambs had such a positive impact on all the residents and really did put a smile on their faces. Everyone who attended commented on what a wonderful experience it was for them.

School Visit

Longueville Court residents and staff had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon recently when they were invited to their local primary school, St Botolphs. Year 6 children invited Longueville Court to be a part of their special award presentation when they recently completed the Archbishop of York award. The award consists of 6 sessions and we were thrilled to be involved in the community action section of this award.

We are lucky to have such a close connection with the school and loved admiring their impressive model they made. We all enjoyed watching the children be presented with their certificates and are thrilled to be part of this very worthwhile celebration. The residents were extremely pleased to be able to top the day off by meeting Bishop Stephen from Ely.

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!
