Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Claire Gillan

Hello, I am Claire Gillan and I am the Activities Coordinator at Sherwood Court. I have worked with people with dementia since 2005, when my nana had Alzheimer’s. I like to try new ideas to see if they work, so that we can make their lives here more meaningful and comfortable. I am an outgoing person; I always try to have a smile on my face and hope that my interaction with your loved ones helps to make their lives a little more pleasant.

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!

World Food Day

The celebrations for World Food Day involved staff wearing traditional dress from different countries and embracing our multi-cultural team with food from Romania, China and India. The day was enjoyed by residents, relatives and staff, young and old. Residents enjoyed cooking pizzas and stir frys, reading ‘fun food facts’ about the home, and a collection was held for the local food bank.
