Meet our Activities Coordinator, Carly Chesney
Carly arranges various daily activities within the home and maintains links with local groups, such as Mind Active, Diamond Dolls and local churches. She fundraises regularly to keep the Resident Fund topped up so they can enjoy day trips out to local attractions, which include Alnwick Gardens, Beamish Museum and seaside resorts.
Activities at Station Court
Activities make up the most important part of all our days, and at Station Court we ensure there are a variety of social events that reflect the individual interests and capabilities of people we support. All group and individual activities are designed to not only mentally and physically stimulate the people we care for, but to enhance their life skills and feelings of purpose and self worth. All of our team are committed to supporting a full activities programme within the home.
Life at our home
Honouring the Fallen
Our 101 year old war veteran, Jim, was still able to attend the Remembrance Day parade and participate in the march through our local town to the memorial garden for the memorial service. It was our honour to be part of this with him.
Residents thoroughly enjoyed the Little Movers children joining us in the home-making magic moments, with their infectious energy and laughter, we are thrilled to have them every Thursday with us.
Feeling 25 Again
Four of our ladies thoroughly enjoyed the community tea dance, with lunch, quiz, raffle, live entertainment and of course a good dance!
101st Birthday Celebrations
A huge happy birthday to war veteran, Jim. We celebrated him turning 101! Singer, Michaela, put on a wonderful musical show just for the occasion.
This month residents put on their blue suede shoes and celebrated Joan’s 80th birthday! With Mike Memphis, number one Elvis impersonator, in the north east & his show girl! We danced, ate a birthday cake and lots of party food. Everyone toasted to the birthday lady with a glass of champagne.
