Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sarah Jeacock

Hello, my name is Sarah, I am the Activities Coordinator at Vecta House. I have been working for Barchester Healthcare, both at Orchard House and now at Vecta House, since 2009.  I previously worked as a Care Assistant on nights and I am now really looking forward to my new role and introducing lots of new ideas and activities to 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.

Come and join us at our Open Day

Meet our dedicated team on Saturday 19th January, who can answer any questions you may have about our home.

Bird Box Painting

Two of our residents from our Memory Lane community enjoyed their art and craft therapy session recently, where they painted bird boxes.

Nevil personalized his bird box with his name and his beloved wife’s names, and Pat made a beautiful bird box. The art & craft session is helpful for dementia’s residents, to enable them to communicate and to open their mind through art.
