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.

Alzheimer's Society

We held a coffee morning in reception for the Alzheimer's society, where residents enjoyed a quiz and a sing-a-long.  A good time was had by all and the staff all joined in by dressing up as Elves.

Malton School

We invited students from Malton School to come along and share activities which they'd planned for the residents. It was so clear to see how much everyone enjoyed it! We've made plans for this to continue in the future.
