Meet our Activities Coordinators, Lisa, Ashley and Sara

Hello, our names are Lisa, Ashley and Sara and we are the Activities and Lifestyle team at Paternoster House! We are 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.

Activities and Events Partnerships

As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

Puppy Therapy

Fluffy, cuddly, adorable puppies!

Once again Performing Pets bring joy and delight to the residents of Paternoster House. Today the wonderful Performing Pets team brought three gorgeous Alsatian puppies to meet the residents.

Residents and staff alike were queuing up to meet these lovely bundles of fur. Animal therapy is an essential part of our Activities Calendar and our partnership with Performing Pets has been hugely successful.

Putting Up The Tree

Residents and staff have all been involved in decorating our Christmas trees and our home. We have been handcrafting beautiful ornaments, ribbons and table displays all week.

Paternoster House looks fantastically Christmassy and the countdown to the big day is really underway.

Christmas Carol Concert

We had a fantastic time when one of our favourite singers visited to perform classic Christmas carols and get us into the festive spirit.

Residents and staff were singing along and enjoying the festive atmosphere.

Party Time Productions

We had a fabulous visit from Party Time Productions who performed their Christmas show: 'Let It Snow'. 

Their team brought a great energy to the home and the show was a lot of fun. We are looking forward to more live performances from a range of entertainers throughout the festive period.

Therapy Goat Visit

Paternoster House was once again pleased to play host to an unusual visitor on Monday when a goat called Honey came to visit the home!

Residents at Paternoster House were laughing away to see Honey the goat, accompanied by her friend and therapy dog Zeus, roaming the corridors and rooms as Performing Pets paid another visit. Paternoster House have teamed up with Performing Pets, who are one of the leading pet therapy providers in North London, to provide a rolling programme of therapy animal visits. The ongoing animal visits have so far included goats, puppies, budgies and rabbits, with owls, guinea pigs and miniature pigs planned for future visits! 

General Manager Maddie Ilie said: “Our residents love having Performing Pets visit. We keep every visit under wraps so that the residents don’t know which animals they will be bringing! The surprise makes the day even more fun.”

Resident Michael was very amused by the goat today: “You don’t see farm animals inside buildings very often so you have to laugh at people’s reactions! We’ve had allsorts visit now.”

Paternoster House care home is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which is committed to delivering personalised care across its care homes and hospitals. Paternoster House provides residential care, nursing care and dementia care for up to 90 residents from respite care to long term stays.

This type of therapy is a cornerstone of the activities here at Paternoster House.
