Meet our Activities Coordinator, Emily Calvert

My name is Emily and I have worked at Mount House for just under two years, I previously worked within Events Management in large pharmaceutical events and conventions across the country and then within the care sector. Both of which I feel have provided with me with a skill set which enables me to provide a broad ranging activity programme within Mount House for all of our residents. This is based primarily around the wants and needs of our residents but also by introducing a varied programme of musical entertainment, holistic therapies and social events within the home and out in the local community. 

I love my job, and enjoy interacting with people on a daily basis as well as building relationships with the individuals whom live at the home. And this prompts me to work very hard with my team to ensure that they receive the best care possible. 

Activities at Mount House and Severn View

Our Activities team is a dedicated group whom strive to ensure that the residents of Mount House have a broad range of meaningful activities daily which reflect the needs, wants and interests of all our residents. From our larger events including Garden Parties in our spectacular grounds to birthday celebrations with live musical entertainment we always have a broad range of events to suit all of our wonderful residents. We also go on a number of outings throughout the year in and around Shropshire, many of which are linked to community organisations whom cater specifically for interests of the people we support.

Something we have always been passionate about here at The Mount is Music therapy and we offer a diverse musical programme of live music and entertainers throughout the year to suit all tastes. Food theme days and tasting afternoons, as well as regular Cookery classes and chair yoga are on offer as well as beauty therapy and massage. 
We aim to consistently provide a high quality activities programme for all of our residents and ensure that regardless of limitations and circumstances each individual has the best possible experience within our home, through both a physical and mentally stimulating person-centred approach.
