Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jill Lynch

Hi, my name is Jill and I am the Senior Activities Coordinator.

This is my dream job; I love organising activities, crafts, outings, talking and basically being silly.

I believe residents will benefit from lots of stimulation, both mental and physical.

Activities at our home

Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

Elvis is in the Building

Elvis came in to sing to us recently, and had all of the ladies swooning. He gave everyone a kiss on the hand, which meant we had some very happy residents.

Shildon Steam Museum

We recently attended the Shildon Steam Museum. Residents really enjoyed look at the old train, and they had so many stories to tell! They had smiles on their faces all day and were still talking about the trip well into the following day.

Out & About

We enjoyed a day trip to South Park recently. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and loved looking at the ducks in the pond. Residents also loved talking to other people in the park.

Horsin' Around

Our Carer/Activities Coordinator has a horse called Caz. He is always telling the residents about him so, naturally, they wanted to meet him. Adam brought Caz in and residents enjoyed stroking him and feeding him mints.
