Meet our Activities Coordinator, Tina Holmes

Hi, I’m Tina, and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Meadowbeck. 

I began working at the home as a Care Assistant in 1999. In 2014, I changed my role to Social Support Worker, which I enjoyed, as it involved supporting residents at Meadowbeck in their daily lifestyles. 

I then became the Activities Coordinator in May 2017. I love working with the elderly and getting to know them and their families, in addition to supporting them in their active lifestyles to make their time at Meadowbeck as enjoyable as possible.

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.

Time for a Cuppa

We had a tea party in aid of Dementia UK which was enjoyed by residents and their families and friends. Staff had fun dressing up in their vintage tea party dresses too.

Valentine's Day

Here at Meadowbeck, we celebrated Valentine’s day with a romantic meal. We then released balloons with messages attached, remembering our loved ones. This was followed by a piano performance from the talented Machala.

Burns Night

We celebrated Burns Night with a friend from the local community; she read us some Robert Burns poetry and told us all about the man's life. We then enjoyed a Burns supper with haggis and tatties, not forgetting a wee dram of whsikey.
