Meet our Activities Coordinator, Rebecca Turner

I have previously enjoyed a position organising activities for a substance abuse charity, where I saw the valuable impact of having a full and active life, and what a drastic effect that can have on a person's health and progress. I studied Psychology at university and, following that, I studied Art in Plymouth.

I am an avid fan of theatre and all performing arts, from musicals to live orchestration, and I am actively involved in the tech crew of local theatre. I chose to take a post as Activities Coordinator to combine my love of working with people and my interest in activities and events.

I am always up for trying something new; my personal hobbies range from kickboxing to playing the oboe. I aim to give every resident access to whatever activities/facilities they desire, inside and outside the home.

Everyone working at Mount Tryon is dedicated to ensuring that those we support can live their lives too the fullest. For some, it is simply support with transport to a club they’ve been part of for years, and for others, it can be helping them experience new things – whatever it is, we’ll give it a go!

I am always looking for new ideas and activities for people to try, so if you have any thoughts, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

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!

Open Day

On April 21st, Mount Tryon welcomed the local community for an afternoon of musical entertainment, furry animals and a high tea. Country duo, the Carnaby Set, played and sang some classic country music, as well as a few of the old favourites in the lounge whilst guests and residents were served homemade cakes that had been prepared by the Head Chef.

Residents and guests were also visited by the animals of Animal HQ. Everyone enjoyed cuddling the rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and Chihuahuas, and a few were brave enough to hold the snakes and giant stick insects.

Spring Has Arrived

Spring has finally arrived here at Mount Tryon; it’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago we were surrounded by snow. Yesterday, we had a wonderful time sat out enjoying the sun. After relaxing in the fresh air, the sunny skies have left us eagerly awaiting the summer.

Easter Celebrations

To Celebrate Easter at Mount Tryon, residents and staff alike had fun dressing up with their Easter bonnets. We even repurposed some sombreros for the occasion.

We reminisced about decorations from the past and we also had an excellent time giving out chocolate eggs and got a bit competitive racing some wind-up, furry friends!

The Beast from the East

Like most of the country recently, Mount Tryon was visited by the winter weather. The garden looked beautiful in the snow and residents were inspired by the lovely views to have a creative art session whilst keeping warm inside.

Easter Preparations

We have been busy getting getting into the seasonal spirit. We also gave the Easter bunny a hand by filling eggs with chocolate, ready for the big day.

'60s Day

We hosted a '60s-themed day complete with some groovy music. In the morning, we were reminiscing about experiences during the decade whilst making some lovely flower headbands. Festivities really got going in the afternoon when our musical entertainment arrived; residents were up on their feet boogieing away!
