Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jill Harris
I am passionate about working with our residents and making their days fulfilled and happy. I have worked with the elderly in previous roles and love coming up with ideas for activities and events and enjoy every day I come to work. I love to hear singing, laughter and see the residents learning new skills and sharing their stories with me.
Activities at The Spires
Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.
Life at The Spires Care Home
Residents Water Feature
The resident's committee requested a water feature from their funds raised from events in 2019. It is situated in our courtyard garden for all to enjoy.
Gwen enjoyed her Birthday with her friends in the home, they enjoyed bucks fizz tipple and a delicious cake made by our chef. They followed this by chatting in the sunshine in the courtyard garden.
VE Day Heart
The team wanted to show their respect and thanks to all who served in the war and supported the war effort in so many ways. The gesture of the heart was a fitting tribute.
