Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Celine Townsend

Celine has joined the team at Tyspane as our Activities Coordinator. She is an enthusiastic and energetic leader for the staff and residents alike. She has come to us with a wealth of experience working with young people and charitable organisations around the world, including the underprivileged in South Africa and helping to re-build Haiti after the earthquake.  

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.

Life at our home

Three Cheers for Anais

We celebrated the work of our youngest volunteer recently; at only 13 years of age, Anais Davies loves joining residents during events and helping out at the home on weekends. Inspired by the dedication of the staff at here, Anais has plans to become a physiotherapist when she gets older.

She recently helped us to make a massive cake in recognition of the Queen's birthday. To make this 28kg (4.5 stone) Victoria sponge cake, Anais baked 19 sponge cakes, used 57 eggs, 4lbs of butter, 4kg of fondant, 4kg of icing sugar and 1.5 kg of fresh strawberries. It took Anais and her volunteers 30 hours to design the crown, bake the sponge cakes and decorate it.

Seed Planting

With this beautiful weather we have been having, Tyspane has started a seed planting club. We are growing flowers and vegetables as well as herbs, which we will eventually use in our kitchen.

Residents enjoy talking about their gardens and exchanging tips whilst getting their hands dirty again. Seeing their plants growing every day is also very rewarding.
