Meet our Activities Coordinator, Clare Burke

Hello, my name is Clare Burke, and I'm the Activities Coordinator here at Marple Dale. I have been doing this role since April 2018 and I absolutely love it.

Before I started as the Activities Coordinator, I worked as a Carer here and, previous to that, I worked in a nursery as a Nurse.

I love being creative and getting everyone involved in our activities. I have built a good relationship with the residents here and know them very well.

Activities at our home

Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.

Matlock Bath

We went on the cable cars at Matlock Bath to the heights of Abraham. Residents thought this was fantastic and said that they had never been so high up in the sky,

Stockport Hat Works

We went to the Stockport Hat Works to learn about the history of the town. We tried on many different hats and enjoyed a tour of the museum.

The Beatles Story

We took residents to The Beatles Story in Liverpool, 'the world's largest permanent exhibition purely devoted to the lives and times of The Beatles'. It really brought back good memories for residents, as The Beatles was a favourite band of many of them. We also enjoyed the Liverpool docks.
