Meet our Activity Coordinators, Lucy Humphries & Jill Harris

We are passionate about working with our residents and making their days fulfilled and happy.  Lucy was working as part of the care team at The Spires and was thrilled to join the activities team, Jill has worked with the elderly in previous roles.  We have so many ideas for  activities and events and enjoy every day we come to work, we love to hear singing, laughter and see the residents learning new skills and sharing their stories with us.

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.
