Meet our Activities Coordinator, Dawn Edwards

Dawn has been at Rhiwlas for many years and previously worked as a Carer at the home. She is very passionate, spontaneous and creative in her approach to activities. You only have to look at the standard of the activities programme that she has arranged and all the photographs that have been taken. She networks closely with the community and is a genuinely caring human being, as well as a Palliative Care Six Steps Champion. 

Activities at Rhiwlas

Our Activities Coordinators are well-equipped with the knowledge and skills required to meet the needs of those we support, and are instrumental in ensuring that Rhiwlas receives good press coverage, mostly due to our involvement with local schools and churches.

We often arrange parties, social group activities and networking within the community in order to enhance the social lives of residents. Needs are met by residents participating in activities of their choice, including pet therapy, arts and crafts, sensory and music therapy, live entertainment, trips out to theatres, shopping, lunches, football matches and visits to garden centres. We also have a monthly quiz that is run and organised by a resident, and we often have a competition between staff, relatives and residents.

We aim to encourage family and friend participation and support for those who live here on special occasions, such as Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, anniversaries, birthdays and Valentine’s Day.
