Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jackie Chillingworth
The activities calendar at Moreton Hill is devised to appeal to as many residents' interests as possible. Residents bring with them lifelong hobbies and passions, and Jackie does everything possible to support and encourage them to continue to pursue them. An important part of her work is also to engage local community groups and organisations to join in to enrich the activities at Moreton Hill whenever possible.
Activities at our home
Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!
