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.

 

Activities 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.

St Patricks Day Performance

Longueville Court  resident Bridie had her St Patricks Day wish come true to see Irish dancers perform again when local dance company Solas School Of Irish Dancing paid the home a visit recently.

Solas helped celebrate St Patrick's day by performing a stunning set of traditional Irish dances. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment and a glass of Guinness finished off a great evening for the residents and their families.

A Kind Donation

Our memorable pets were kindly donated to us recently, and have been providing loving comfort to our residents. Pet Therapy can be used in many different ways, and our realistic looking cat and dog are used alongside our visiting P.A.T dog who visits the home fortnightly.

They all help promote self-esteem and helps build the pre-existing human-animal bond amongst our residents.

National Pizza Day

National Pizza Day was a real treat at Longueville Court, where residents, families and staff marked the occasion by getting out their aprons and kneading the dough to make pizzas for everyone to enjoy. There were lots of different types of toppings to choose from, and we were all spoilt for choice.

Boogie Beatz

We really enjoyed some choreographed chair-based dancing by Boogie Beatz; everyone joined in with classics from Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard and many more. Ribbon sticks and pom-poms made for some colourful accessories to add to the enjoyment, and we all agreed that is was a great way of getting some gentle exercise whilst having fun.
