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.

Exercise & Entertainment

Lynde House residents enjoyed some entertainment and exercise when our Activities Coordinator, Terina, visited them in their rooms. She spent one-to-one time with many of them and everyone loved taking part in fun by physically stimulating exercise.
