Meet our Activities Coordinators, Jessica Larkin, Lovette Turner and Skigh Harrison.
We would like to welcome you to our activities team, Jessica Larkin, Lovette Turner and Skigh Harrison. Each coordinator started as carers in the home and they have worked together as an activities team for a number of years.
They are passionate about their role and providing the best for the Residents in the home, they enjoy finding new ways to of engaging and creating real and meaningful connections with the residents, through Resident centred 1-2-1 sessions, group activities, interesting outings and close links with our local communities.
Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience, and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
Life at Scarborough Hall Care Home
For residents in the home, today was the start of our long awaited reunion as one single named visitor is allowed to visit a resident in their bedroom.
It was great to see families reunited, a happy day for everyone. We have captured a few of these visits today. It was a wonderful moment accompanied with smiles and laughter.
St Patrick's Day
Happy St Patrick’s Day to all our Irish family and friends. We hope you all had a great day, we sure did at Scarborough Hall
Now it’s time for a pint of Guinness and relax. Let’s hope the luck of the Irish brings us some good news soon when we can return to normal
For residents at Scarborough Hall, the long awaited reunion with one family member has become a reality, as one single named visitor is now allowed to visit each resident in their bedroom.
There has been much anticipation of this moment by families and residents alike. Guidance was issued by the Government on March 4 and Barchester Healthcare, who run Scarborough Hall care home, is proceeding with a safe and cautious approach to visiting. Strict protocols are in place with all visitors required to have a negative Lateral Flow Device test result before being allowed into the home, and infection control measures and social distancing in place for every visit, with hand holding allowed but not recommended.
Despite the need for testing and social distancing, it was still welcome news for so many residents and their family members to be able to meet in the comfort of their bedroom. Residents and their relative enjoyed getting together and catching up face to face.
Mum's the word at Scarborough Hall

General Manager, Charlotte Nurse said: “We’ve all had a really lovely day. Although Mother’s Day has had to be a bit different this year, our mums have had video calls with family and we have made good use of our visiting suite to make sure lots of our residents had a visit with their loved ones.”
Sweet treats for Valentine's
Scarborough Hall was filled with flowers, cards and sweets in celebration of St Valentine’s Day.
Staff and residents celebrated the day of love by creating heart-shaped decorations to decorate the home and gifting each other home-made sweets, cakes and treats served by the homes life enrichment team.
General Manager, Charlotte Nurse said: “It’s been a very different Valentine’s Day but we’ve all had a lovely day nonetheless. Lots of our residents were able to see their loved ones either using our visiting suite or on a video call.
