Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

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.

Visit to Langlands Garden Centre

Residents accompanied by some of our team members visited the Langlands Garden Centre picking blooms to add to our wonderful garden and home, and browsed through the music section, stopping to enjoy rock music through the latest Bose headphones.

Residents and families enjoyed a visit from this ladies choir; everyone was singing along beautifully. They loved them so much that we asked them to return shortly.
