Meet our Activities Coordinators, Stacey Davies

I have worked at Southerndown since 2013. I enjoy providing many various activities for our residents, such as gardening groups, trips out in the mini bus, quiz days and art therapy, amongst the many things we enjoy to do.

I also hold a bi- monthly Memory Café, named G.E.M.M.S, with my colleague, Graeme McFetridge, which all family and friends are welcome to attend.

I look forward to meeting you all. 

Activities at Southerndown

Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.

Activities and Events Partnerships

As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

Life at Southerndown Care Home

Father's Day

Father’s day at Southerndown was such a lovely day. We discussed beforehand what we would like to do for the day and we decided upon visits from loved ones, a traditional Sunday Lunch and some real ale to round off the day. Such an amazing way to celebrate all the amazing fathers.

Fond Fairwell

Here at Southerndown we would like to wish Eva a very fond farewell, good luck and best wishes on her retirement. Eva has worked here at Southerndown for over 31 years! Eva started her Southerndown journey as a home trainer, then a team leader and then joined our admin team. Eva will be missed, but we all wish her the best for her new adventure.

Yoga

Southerndown have been holding weekly Yoga sessions with our very own carer Martin – who also happens to be a qualified Yoga instructor. The yoga sessions have been such a hit with staff and residents alike. We really are looking forward to every Wednesday.

Jubilee Celebrations

Jubilee celebrations fit for a queen. We celebrated in style with singing and dancing, delicious food and plenty of pimms. What a lovely way to celebrate such a momentous occasion.

Hadsham Farm

We were invited to Hadsham Farm to see the little baby lambs. It was so nice to spend time feeding the newborn lambs and holding the little chicks. It really was such a special day and bought back so many happy memories for our residents.

Choir

We are so pleased to be reading about our very own Southerndown Choir in the local news. We were recently approached and asked if we would mind being featured in April’s edition of Chipping Norton News as our choir practices every week. Residents were really pleased to read about themselves in their local news and it has been the talk of the home since.
