Meet our Activities Coordinator, Izzy Lamb

I started at Springvale Court in 2010 as a Care Assistant and was then promoted to Activities Coordinator in 2016. I strive to ensure that each individual is supported with social contact, mobility and independence with an activities programme that is fun, so that residents can thrive and live to their full potential.

Activities at our home

Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.

Valentine's Day

Residents at Springvale Court had an amazing afternoon singing along to the most popular songs of the '50s, '60s and '70s . We all thoroughly enjoyed a 'Romantic Crooner' performance that was specially arranged for this day.

Drawing Workshop

What a lovely creative morning it was in Blaydon Library. Residents joined artist Paul Merrick for some inspirational and fun drawing activities. We created ‘blind’ and touch drawings using still life and portraiture as a starting point. We cannot wait to attend similar workshops in the near future.

Zoolab

Residents had a lovely morning with animals from Zoolab. The Animal Ranger, Rob, did a fantastic job introducing different species of reptiles and insects to residents. Everybody got a chance to hold and pat the animals and ask questions about their habitat. We hope to see Zoolab returning to our home soon.
