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.

Residents at Longueville Court attended an enjoyable pre-school nativity service at Peterborough Cathedral recently. The nativity, performed by the children of St Thomas Moore Catholic Nursery, was filled with lots of singing and plenty of audience participation, which everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed.

Christmas Shopping

Residents had a thoroughly enjoyable day Christmas shopping, when we visited our local Van Hage Garden Centre.

They spent the day taking in all the Christmas displays and were delighted to be entertained by a life-sized reindeer singing Christmas songs! 

The day was finished off with a well-received slice of cake and a cup of tea.

Lean, Mean Bowling Machines

The residents of Longueville Court enjoyed a competitive afternoon at our local bowling alley, where they competed against each other for bragging rights. Everyone involved enjoyed the healthy competition and eagerly awaited to see who would be the first to get a strike. The afternoon was finished off with some very well-deserved refreshments.

Remembrance Day Service

Longueville Court has been working closely with the church over the last few months and residents have enjoyed knitting poppies, which were added to the church's wonderful display. Also added to the display were poppies we made out of plastic bottle ends that everyone enjoyed making in the messy arts and craft sessions.

Halloween

Halloween was a success here at Longueville Court; residents had the fun task of carving pumpkins and playing spooky games. The highlight was the afternoon tea, with Halloween cakes that residents had previously made. Everybody got dressed up and enjoyed other games like apple bobbing and wrapping up the volunteers as mummies!

For the Love of Music

We had a lovely afternoon singing and dancing when we were entertained by the very talented singer Zoe McClean. Zoe sang a selection of songs and evoked lots of memories for residents with hits from well-known musicals. We are looking forward to welcoming Zoe back at Christmas, when she will be singing a selection of carols for us.
