Meet our Activities Coordinator, Tammy Busby

Hello,  my name is Tammy Busby, and I am the Lifestyle Leader here at Vecta House. I have worked for Barchester for around 7 years, mainly as a senior care assistant, but now have taken on the position on the Lifestyle Leader. 

I am very passionate about my work and enjoy every aspect of my job, Bringing a smile to residents’ faces is my main priority, and I strive to always do my best for each and every person living in this home.

I feel proud to do this job and can go home knowing that I have made a difference to the lives of so many residents at Vecta House. I am also proud to be part of such a brilliant team!”

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.
