Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Eve Parsons

Eve is our Activities Coordinator who plans and provides the activities for the residents. We hold regular resident meetings and take on board all comments and suggestions. We will be planning some trips over the coming months and will keep you all up-to-date with our events.

Activities at Westwood House

As Activity Coordinator at Westwood House I am fully committed to organising activities for all of the residents. This includes activities within the home such as reminiscence sessions, and planning events such as the Summer and Christmas parties. We have also provided some very successful trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and have monthly visits from entertainers and musicians. We are always encouraging local schools to get involved and have recently managed to get a local charity 'Spare tyre' working with us very successfully.

It is important to me that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.
