Meet our Lifestyle Enrichment Coordinator, Carli-Anne Yates

I really love making a difference to the residents' lives at Mortain Place. I enjoy making them smile and providing the best service for them.

Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.

Activities and Events Partnerships

As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

Whats on the tray??

We tested our residents memories today with a game of "Whats on the tray" whereby we put some randon items on a tray which the residents study for 60 seconds. The tray is then taken away and the residents have to jot down every item they can remember. We had a lot of fun with this and were impressed with how many of the items our residents managed to remember.

This is a team game so it is always interesting to see who remmebers what and it makes it a bit more fun to have a competitve element to the game.

Pre lunch brain teasers

There were many laughs shared during a crossword and word search session today before lunch. Our residents love getting involved in the many different activities we have each day but sometimes you can't beat a couple of good brain teasers.


World Religion Day

This week we celebrated World Religion Day. World Religion Day is celebrated every January on the third Sunday of the month. Its aim is to promote understanding and peace between all religions, encouraging people to learn about other faiths and their followers. The first such day was observed in 1950.

We had many discussions about what religion means to our residents, how is has affected their lives and how they have got involved in various religious activities throughout their lives which created a lot of very interesting stories.

We also tried diffferent foods that are synonymous with particular religions. In the pictures you can see residents tucking into Jewish favourite Halva which was made by our wonderful kitchen team.
