Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lisa Bale

Hi there, my name is Lisa, and I am part of the activities team here at The Manor. I have worked with Barchester for over 10 years and have previously worked as a Unit Care Coordinator before taking on my current role.

I love coming in to work each day and the variety it brings. I particularly enjoy taking residents out for the day on the minibus; most recently, we have been to the seaside and ten-pin bowling. Having fun and making residents smile makes my job worthwhile and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My love of being with people extends into my personal life and I enjoy cooking for friends and family in between renovating my new house.

Activities at The Manor

Our activities staff are here 7 days a week and are constantly striving to mentally and physically stimulate those we care for in a group or individual basis. From trips to garden centres, the theatre, and flower shows to personal shopping and attending family events. We also love organising Christmas fairs, our famous classic car show, musicians, entertainment, and pizza and pint evenings. The team encourage families to visit and work closely with our volunteers to ensure that our residents social care is a priority, so that they have a fun filled and enriched stay whilst here at The Manor.

Dove House

Following a conversation between our maintenance team and a relative's husband regarding pigeons and doves, a resident's husband asked if he could make a dove house for us. We supplied the wood the finished product can be seen above.
