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.

Oakham Fire Station

We had a fantastic trip out to Oakham Fire Station. Everyone was in good spirits and we all enjoyed refreshments with the firemen and women.

Oakham Museum

On this beautiful day, we took a trip out with some of the residents to Oakham Museum. Everyone commented on how big it was inside and loved looking at all the exhibits. The museum staff were on hand to assist us and we had a few refreshments in the garden before heading back to Tixover.

Royal Wedding Celebrations

We celebrated the royal wedding with a good ol' British tea party and followed the TC coverage of the big day, where everyone agreed that the couple look fantastic.

Tixover's Got Talent

Singing and dancing was the name of the game, and staff and residents were in fine form (move over X Factor, here we come). There were lots of laughs and fun and games, like carpet skittles and even knitting.

International Nurses' Day

We celebrated International Nurses' Day to recognise all the wonderful work that our Nurses do here day and night. They were presented with a certificate and flowers, in addition to a special water bottle that reminds them to stay hydrated during their shifts.
