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.

York Railway Museum

We took a few gents to the York Railway Museum and they all enjoyed it. Len, who had never been before said that that he would love to go back again. They got up close and personal with Japan's fastest bullet train and even met the dog that worked for a charity at the London railway.

Resident Relaxation

Sometimes residents just enjoy relaxing, whether that's by watching TV, reading the newspaper or reminiscing about past activities.

Royal Wedding Celebrations

Residents gathered in the lounge to watch the royal wedding on TV. Everyone had hats to wear and flags to wave and our Head Chef prepared a cold buffet for all to enjoy. Our Receptionist, Alex, made some delicious cakes, which the residents really enjoyed.

Darts Tournament

We hosted our first darts tournament recently, and our winner was Margaret, who finished with x3. Everyone really enjoyed playing, so we're going to make it a regular activity.

Open Day

On 21st April, we hosted an open day and were visited by Oreo & Friends. Residents and visitors really enjoyed the hands-on experience. These are just a few of the animals that we had a chance to meet; the silver fox was just amazing.
