Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Tina Holmes

Hi, I’m Tina. I am a Social Support Worker at Meadowbeck. I began working at Meadowbeck as a Care Assistant in 1999. I achieved my NVQ level 2 in Care. In 2014, I changed my role to Social Support Worker, which I enjoy, as it involves supporting residents at Meadowbeck in their daily lifestyles. 

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.

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.
