Meet our Activities Coordinator, Rachel Horne

Hello, my name is Rachel and I am the lead activity coordinator here at Overslade House!  I have experience of my own loved ones living in care homes and treat all the residents with the empathy and respect that I would want my own family to be treated with. I am here to help facilitate a rich and happy life, not just provide a service. I have an open-door policy, and I encourage is welcome to offer feedback and ideas.

Activities at Overslade House

Our activities team are dedicated to organise a variety of events and activities and adapt them to suit the abilities of all our residents. Our goal is to improve quality of life by providing activities which are tailored to their personal life history. At Overlade House we encourage local people and businesses to participate as well as our staff and relatives, in order to keep them involved as part of a wider community. We strive to enhance the quality of both mental and physical stimulation. From our weekly mini bus excisions, PAT dogs, quizzes, zumba classes, arm chair line dancing to musical entertainers, pamper sessions or simply having a meaningful conversation, we definitely have something for everyone.

Time for a cuppa event

Overslade House hosted their "time for a cuppa event" to support Dementia UK, it was a brilliant event that brought residents, relatives and the local community together to raise awareness for Dementia UK. After the event we hosted a Dementia workshop. Relatives said they found the workshop very informative and have gained a better understanding of the illness. We will be hosting monthly Dementia Cafés starting on 6th April, there will be support and advice for individuals and a variety of activities and talks to help individuals gain more information and understanding of Dementia.
