Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Angela Lawson

Angela is responsible for providing and delivering a varied activities programme on our elderly frail unit.

Activities at Rivermead

Our Activities Coordinators are constantly striving to mentally and physically stimulate those who live at Rivermead by organising group and individual activities for anyone to participate in. We have our own minibus and go out on trips at least once a week, families are also welcome to support their relative on a trip. We visit the coast, shopping centres, local areas of natural beauty, museums and always welcome new ideas for different venues. We hold events for national initiatives such as Macmillan Coffee Morning and Children in Need, where staff also join in the fun!

We hold a monthly church service at Rivermead, as well as fetes at Christmas and in the summer to welcome the local community into our home.

Wear it Pink

On 25th October we supported breast cancer awareness 'Wear It Pink' campaign. Residents and staff wore pink to our coffee morning, we had a pink cake stall, pink raffle and pink tombola. We raised in excess of £200, many thanks to all who supported this event. We will be doing a cheque presentation in the next few weeks, I'm sure they will be tickled pink with our efforts!
