Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lisa Smith

I am responsible for developing and overseeing an active living programme for each resident, which supports mobility, social contact, independence and fun, so that each and every one of the residents can thrive and live to their full potential.

Activities at Paternoster House

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 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.

Singing for the Brain

Residents enjoyed a community bus outing to attend 'Singing for the Brain', which is a singing group for people living with dementia, their family and carers. It is a relaxed and supportive environment that is funded by the Alzheimer's Society. We really enjoy attending these sessions and watching the positive response and participation from everyone.

Christmas Carols

We had a lovely morning when some pupils from Upshire School Choir visited us and sang a range of Christmas songs for residents. It was a great atmosphere and was enjoyed by everyone. The children looked great in their festive jumpers.

Honouring the Fallen

This is a display that was created by residents, children from the local Sunshine Nursery and our regular volunteers to commemorate Remembrance Day. Each poppy was cut out individually and glued on to a dress, and this is the superb outcome.

Gardening Club

Residents have been growing tomatoes, leeks aubergines and cabbages. We have a regular Gardening Club on a Wednesday afternoon, where we water and weed and generally look after the garden. Due to its success, we have now been given another flower bed. We are currently working alongside a local school to create a memory garden for residents.

Pony Therapy

We were joined recently by the pet therapy ponies, Rosie & Bonnie, who are regular visitors to Paternoster House. The magical miniature ponies are 28 inches tall and very gentle. We are already looking forward to their next visit!
