Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Julie Rothwell

Julie started at Meadow Park in 2003 as a Care Assistant and immediately impressed her colleagues with her person-centered approach and dedication to her job role.

Julie has shown some exceptional devotion to all residents at Meadow Park; she goes that extra mile to ensure that activities in the home are fun and even spends her own free time taking residents on trips in the minibus. Always happy to offer assistance, whether it's help with personal care or serving meals, Julie is a very enthusiastic person who constantly inspires others with her outstanding work ethic.

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.

Al Fresco Fun

Bob and Mina made the most of the weather at Meadow Park by eating in the garden.

These small things mean a lot to residents. Bob said this reminded him of days travelling across Europe in his caravan with his wife and eating outside regularly, specifically in Switzerland, one of their favourite places. He enjoyed talking about it with Mina.

A Double Celebration

Senior Carer on nights, Vivienne Thomson, received a commemorative badge and £250 vouchers in recognition of her 10th year at Barchester, and was also nominated for and won our Employee of the Month award for November, receiving an extra £25 worth of vouchers.

Staff said that Vivienne is very supportive to her team and very caring towards residents. She will help out during the holidays and will come in earlier if needed, without complaint. Viv also received a larger bouquet of flowers and a certificate recognising both of her achievements.

Barchester's 25th Anniversary

On Friday 27th October, we celebrated Barchester's 25th anniversary by hosting a Halloween party. We had live entertainment for residents and guests, pumpkin carving in the afternoon, a creepy cakes competition and a raffle. In total, we managed to raise £160 for the residents' social fund. 

A number of staff members, loved ones and a couple of residents dressed up for the day, including the General Manager, who was the clown.
