Meet our Activities Coordinator, Gitana Norvaisiene

Gitana Norvaisiene is our Activities Coordinator. She oversees and organises all social activities within the home. Although Gitana only recently took up the Coordinators role she was previously a carer at Lynde House. Within her first year she was honoured with being shortlisted at the National Barchester  Awards  in the category of Activities Coordinator of the year and also won with her team  of residents and local school pupils the Barchester In Bloom best Flower display

Activities at Lynde House

Our Activities Coordinators get a real buzz off their work here as enthusiasm is essential for the role. We decorate and celebrate for all the big annual events, Valentine's Day, Easter, Mothering Sunday and much more. There are also regular fixtures in our activities programme, including bingo, a sherry morning and quizzes, that are always well-attended. There's also an International Day that we hold to celebrate the wonderful ethnic diversity of our staff, where members of our team and their families give up their time to showcase their national costumes, dances and songs. Of course, we also have activities and services tailored to those residents who prefer the quiet life, such manicures or simply a friendly chat and a cup of tea. We always do our best to learn about residents' hobbies and interests and try to arrange our activities programme around their individual likes and dislikes.

Arts & Crafts

Some residents at Lynde House picked up a paintbrush for the first time recently during our recent art class. For others, it was like they'd never put one down. Either way, it was a great way to spend an afternoon!

Isabella Plantation

On Wednesday 5th July, residents from Lynde House enjoyed an afternoon at the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park. Although many of the world famous rhododendrons had already flowered, there was still a riot of colour and some fantastic bird spotting.

Open Day

What a joyous day at Lynde House on Saturday 9th June 2018, when we welcomed new visitors into our home, and some old friends as well.

The weather was kind to us and we enjoyed great entertainment, glorious food and a few refreshments by way of Pimm's and Prosecco.

A resident recently departed Lynde House after a long recovery from ill health and hosted a thank you party before leaving as a way of saying thank you to staff – how sweet!
