Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Rebecca Clark

I have been working at Mount Vale since 2013; I absolutely love my job, especially meeting all residents and their families. We have lots of events, such as fetes art exhibitions and open days. We always endeavour to involve the local community, so schools and colleges will often visit the home. We have lots of external entertainers and enjoy regular pet therapy sessions, including a PAT dog, who will often stop by to spend some quality time with residents.

Activities at Mount Vale

Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from PAT dogs, entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.

Rosedene Nursery

We now work with Rosedene Nurseries and hold regular events with them. Our most recent session had residents and children reading together. As you can see from the photos, everyone thoroughly enjoyed this. Our home has just been refurbished and our new café lounge space is ideal for these sessions.

Fun Exercise

Marie enjoyed doing some chair exercise on Memory Line. Light exercise is a great way to keep residents active and, best of all, it's fun!
