Meet our Activities Coordinator, Beth Clark

We all know that keeping active is important. We have created a wonderful culture within the home and we work together to give residents the best possible experience. We are here to ensure that residents enjoy an environment that is both stimulating and socially active. We ensure the team knows each residents' preferences, so that we can deliver a person-centered program of events and activities. Essential to our homely feel is the strong relationships of trust we build with residents and their families and friends. The home also has its very own minibus for our numerous outings for coffee and shopping, which residents love.

Residents enjoy Skype calls

Here at Rivermead we are helping to tackle any feelings of isolation for our residents during this difficult period. Residents are encouraged to use the iPad & tablet to reach out to their friends, families, loved ones and community groups. This morning one of our ladies joined the Dementia Forward Singing Group and sang along with them virtually via Skype. It is important to enable our resident's to keep connected with the relationships and communities they were apart of before lockdown.

Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Today at Rivermead we jumped into wonderland. Our Alice in wonderland themed day has been organised by Colette Craven, Vixx Taylor & Layla Rainbow. Staff and residents stepped into character with their fancy dress and residents spent the morning making hats all ready for our mad hatter's tea party.

The amazing tea party foods and fancies were made possible by chefs Sarah Lightfoot, Graeme Bennison and their team of kitchen assistants. With the variety of foods on offer there was definitely something to please everyone's taste buds including the impressively, scrumptious profiterole tower.

Residents cheered and clapped as Lena Walker, our resident ambassador addressed the staff "I think I speak for everyone when I say what a fabulous party this has been, probably one of the best since I have been a resident here. The food was lovely and a credit to the kitchen team. Thank you very much for organising this."

Home remember Buddy Holly

Rivermead care home was transformed with a 50s themed day to mark Buddy Holly Day on 3rd February.

General Manager, Sarah Jackson said: “Lots of our residents are big Buddy Holly fans and still love his music.  We’ve had a fantastic day listening to all his hits, finding out about his life in 50s America and what influenced him. We watched a documentary about his life, he was such an incredible talent. It is amazing how many songs he recorded.  We all surprised ourselves by how many we remembered!”
