Jessica Porter

Head of Activities & Lifestyle

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.
