Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sue Hill & Tracey Illingworth

Sue joined Mulberry Court in 2000 as a Healthcare Assistant and became an Activities Coordinator in 2009. Tracey was appointed in March 2018, having previously worked as one of our domestic team members and, before that, as a Healthcare Assistant as well.   

Sue and Tracey are dedicated to coordinating social events, entertainment and excursions for those we support, with the broadest possible appeal. They have encouraged strong links with the community and both of them like to design the lifestyle programme with input from residents, identifying and meeting individual needs and preferences. 

Both are passionate about supporting residents to have the most fulfilling lives possible whilst living at Mulberry Court.

Activities at Mulberry Court

The team at Mulberry Court works hard to support and encourage residents to participate in both group and individual activities, based around their preferences and lifestyle choices. We take time to get to know each person, sitting with them and listening to them speak about their lives, interests, and aspirations. We have access to our own minibus so outings to nearby places of interest are available; for example local museums, art galleries, garden centres, and public houses. We also host themed evenings, such as 'Quiz and Meal-in-a-Basket', 'The Races (Greyhounds, Horses)', and 'Takeaway and Movie Night' that we also encourage relatives to come to. We believe lifestyle choices and activities are one of the most important aspects of a care home, and it is essential that we help residents to have fulfilling and enjoyable lives.
