Meet our Activities Coordinator, Rita Matusevicieute

Hello, my name is Rita and I have worked in care for over ten years. I previously worked in London but decided to start a new adventure by moving to Norfolk. I am very passionate about what I do and love to spend time with the residents – bringing smiles and making them happy!

Activities at our home

Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

Come and join us at our Open Day

Meet our dedicated team on Saturday 6th April, who can answer any questions you may have about our home.
