Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

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.

Manchester Bees

Residents have been making there way around Manchester to find the bees, which were erected in memory of the Manchester bombing. We managed to find all 6, thankfully.

Southport Beach

Residents of Marple Dale had a lovely day out in Southport; we went on the pier and watched the train go by, then had some lovely ice cream. We also went for fish and chips and watched the carousel go round and round.
