Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jonathan Stoddart

Jonathan originally joined Barchester as a care worker. He started at Thistle Hill in December 2017 and has some exciting plans for the activities programme. He is always looking forward to the challenge ahead.

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.
