Meet our Activities Coordinator, Paula Lourenco
Hi, my name is Paula and I'm from Portugal. I moved to UK in 2014, and I have been working in the care industry for the last 6 years. I have been working as an activities coordinator for the past 2-years in another care home.
I joined Tewkesbury Fields Care Home in July 2020, and I'm looking forward to getting to know the residents and meeting their wellbeing needs by promoting and organising person centred and meaningful activities.
I'm creative, ambitious, dedicated and passionate about my job. My goal is to help the residents in our home live life to full. We have a range of activities on offer, but if you ever have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch, we’d love to know your thoughts.
You can contact activities team by email TewkesburyFields.Activities@barchester.com
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.
Life at Tewkesbury Fields Care Home
Easter is only a few weeks away and we are planning some fun activities for Easter weekend along with our Easter picture competition. Residents have started with creating some egg decorations carefully placing string around a balloon to form a delicate egg decoration. Tewkesbury Fields offers a varied activities and events program as part of Barchester's Life Enrichment program.

Postcards of Kindness
Over the weekend, residents enjoyed reading and looking at the lovely postcards that we have received at Tewkesbury Fields. The postcards have bought back some wonderful memories of holidays and places they have visited bring many smiles.
