Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jill Harris

I previously managed a day centre for the elderly for 25 years. I love my role as Activities Coordinator; it is a job I very much enjoy, as every day is different. My aim is to organise a fun-packed range of activities for everyone to participate in. We have daily activities, trips on our minibus and monthly events, including cheese & wine, fish & chip suppers and pamper sessions. We have wonderful residents who make me smile & laugh every day.

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.

Volunteer Scrabble

Bill from St Chad’s Church has very kindly agreed to visit residents once a week, and he started his first day with a game of Scrabble with our Resident Ambassador.  

Bill will visit all residents and spend time chatting and going out on trips with us. After 1 day, he already feels like part of our family.

The Lichfield Bower Queen

Charlotte, our Lichfield Bower Queen, and her daughter, Lucy, visited The Spires and spent time with residents. The weather was dreary and raining, but their visit bought sunshine and laughter Lucy played Kerplunk and entertained us all for the whole time they were here.

Charlotte is planning to come again she will bring Lucy to visit the friends she has made, and will also come on her own to chat to residents and get to know them more and hear their stories.

Dementia Friends

We were joined by volunteers from the National Citizen Service, who did some work in our garden. Members of the local community, including a Lichfield police officer, joined us recently to see the results. General Manager, Fran Sharp, was delighted to receive a lovely bouquet of flowers from the young volunteers, as a way of saying thank you for inviting them into the home.

NCS Students' Garden Project

We were recently visited by a group of young people, who spent their summer in the grounds our home planting a community garden. The event, which took place throughout August, was part of NCS’ charity work, where a group of 15-17 year olds donated their time to create 3 floral beds in the home’s gardens as a gift for the residents at the home.

The group, paired off with green thumbed residents, chose the colours and plants together, helping to lay them all out before planting them in the private grounds of the home. The catering team at the home also provided a selection of healthy snacks for all during the project, including hand cut fruits and vegetables, as well as a spread of cakes and sweet treats for all to enjoy.
