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!

Santa at Mount Tryon

We had a very special visit from Father Christmas! He was joined by one of his magical reindeer, and had a wonderful time touring the home and visiting all our residents. He was even kind enough to bring along his sack, which was full of some special Christmas surprises!

Christmas Party

The sounds of music and laughter filled the halls of Mount Tryon as we celebrated our Christmas party. We were full to the brim with guests, music and all who had come along to join us for the event. We heard some fantastic Christmas tunes from one of our favourite visitors – Mac! On behalf of all of us: a Merry Christmas to you all!

Decking the Halls

We’ve been very busy decking the halls here at Mount Tryon. We’ve been having a ball putting up decorations all throughout the home whilst listening to some of our favourite Christmas tunes. It’s been wonderful to see the home be transformed with all the glitter and magic of Christmas.
