Meet our Activities Coordinator, Marie McIntyre

Hi, my name is Marie, and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Tixover House. I am very passionate about ensuring that Tixover is a fun and interactive place for residents to live. My aim is to provide a stimulative and person-centred activities programme that reflects the interests and capabilities of everyone we support.

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.

Trip to Oakham Castle

Our residents enjoyed their trip out to Oakham Castle. They went to see the ceramic poppies that they had previously made during an activity day alongside Age UK. The residents love to take part in trips out in the mini bus and we make sure that everybody gets a chance to go somewhere fun at least twice per week.
