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 Station Court Care Home

Ladies afternoon

Residents of Station Court loved adding a touch of autumn to their doors during their recent arts and crafts session.  Residents came together to make autumn wreaths dressed with pine cones, leaves, berries, woodland animals and some chose to add their initial too.

Messages to loved ones

Keeping safe during the second wave our residents have taken it in their stride, communicating with families virtually over email, photos, skype and telephone. The home is currently waiting for their designated meeting suite to be ready for the return of their visitors when the government deem safe to do so and in the meantime will continue with their messages to their loved ones by all available options.

A day at the beach

Enjoying the last of the summer with a day at the beach – in our garden! With summer songs playing, the sounds of waves and children’s laughter through our speakers, beach games, reminiscing of holidays, ice-cream floats and of course fish chips and ice creams to finish!

Century celebrations for Resident

Celebrations have been in full swing at Station Court Care Home, as one of its residents reaches her centenary in style.

Resident, Bet Smith and friends at the home went back to the 50s with all staff members dressed for the occasion, as music played from her favourite era and dancing at a socially distanced garden party. Everyone was overjoyed as she read out her telegram from the Queen in recognition of her landmark birthday.

When asked what the secret to long life is, the birthday girl, said: ‘’a big family, laughter and a tipple of baileys each night!’’  The staff at the home organised much to their relief for her relatives to visit safely adhering to social distancing guidelines to the delight of all.
