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.

Life at our home

Out for Coffee

Jean, Bath, Helen and Kathleen all enjoyed a walk out to a local department store for a look about and a coffee. As you can see, everyone loved the decorations and the train-themed ornaments.

The Kids Are Back in Town!

We were joined by some nursery children, who enjoy our weekly reading corner. A resident decided to show one of them how to play piano – it was lovely to watch!

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.
