Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Claire Oliver

Hi, my name is Claire and I am the Activities Coordinator. I have worked at the Wheatlands since February 2012 and started my career here as a Care Assistant, but when the opportunity arose to become an Activities Coordinator, I jumped at the chance. Since then, I have loved every moment and enjoy the interactions with residents.

I have a great job ensuring that residents are happy and have loads of fun in and out of the home. We have a varied weekly and monthly activities program, which includes tea parties in the Vintage Café, arts & crafts, baking, board games, quizzes, canal trips, soup lunches and visits from local entertainment, who provide live music for the residents to get up and dance to – even with some lovely wine or lager (whatever tickles your fancy!). We also have movie afternoons/evenings on our big screen TV.

Our aim at the Wheatlands is to ensure that residents are as happy as they can possibly be and enjoy living at the home.

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.

Summer Fête

The local belly dancers always help to liven up the place, and were one of the main attractions at our Summer Fête. They were thoroughly enjoyed by all residents and visitors appeared enthralled by them too. Lynn Day and Sarah Benammar can be seen enjoying the Pimm's bar at the Summer Fête.
