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.

Birthday Girl

This is Irene. She recently celebrated her birthday and, as you can see, she very much enjoyed the day. Irene loves ice cream and, after her birthday cake, devoured a unicorn ice lolly, which she found very amusing.

Sports in the Garden

We had an afternoon of sports in the garden. Lots of residents joined in and had lots of fun. Brian, pictured above, spend time watching and chatting with staff and other residents.

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!

Resident, Ken, celebrated his 91st birthday on Tuesday 3rd July. He has only been with us a short period of time, but was absolutely thrilled with the fuss we made.
