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.

Spring Time In-Door Gardening
This week has seen the residents at Paternoster House helping to get the garden pots and trays looking Spring-ready.
We have been designing flower trays, potting plants and reading up on our gardeners guides. The residents have been full of ideas and inspiration from the gardens they have tended over the years. We are aiming to have some fantastic looking gardens and window displays by the time Summer arrives.
Easter At Paternoster House
Residents and staff have enjoyed an eggcellent Easter at Paternoster House.
The Easter Bank Holiday Weekend was filled with chocolate, cake, faith and fun. Online services were available for residents from local churches, Chef made a fabulous cake and the Activities Team filled the weekend with fun.
Our hardworking gardening team has created a new space for residents to enjoy the sunshine over the coming months.
We are very fortunate with the size of our grounds at Paternoster House as we have large lawns, courtyards and flower gardens. One area of the gardens had been a little forgotten during the winter months, but has seen a dramatic transformation this week.
Once overgrown and unloved, this patio is now wonderfully bright and open. Our residents have been enjoying the sunshine over the Bank Holiday weekend. We are looking forward to holding our summer BBQs here now!
St Patrick's Day
St Patrick's Day was celebrated at Paternoster House with the obligatory green hats, Guinness, accents and Irish music.
A lot of fun was had by the residents with the music being enjoyed all day.
Drinking enough water each day is crucial for many reasons: to regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly. Being well-hydrated also improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood.
You should drink plenty of fluids such as water, diluted squash and fruit juice to stay hydrated. The key is to drink regularly throughout the day (at least 6-8 mugs).
