Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

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.

Flower Arranging

We host a flower arranging club every week, alongside the gardening club. Residents always have fun designing some beautiful creations that are often displayed around the home.

Donkey Afternoon

We were visited by Bella from the local donkey sanctuary in early August. Residents enjoyed making a fuss of Bella in the garden, and some of the less mobile residents were also visited in their rooms by her.

Summer Garden Party

At Vecta House, we held our annual Summer Garden Party on Friday 21st July, where family and friends came together to enjoy entertainment in the sunshine. We enjoyed entertainment from Crackers the clown, Unity Stompers (jazz band), illusionist, Aaron Isted, Isle of Wight Candy Carts and homemade pizza by Vaughan Collins. It was a great afternoon and we managed to raise £223.00.
