Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Tina Hughes

I have previously worked for Barchester at White Lodge in 2008 for over 6 years as part of the activities team, which I thoroughly enjoyed, so I have now decided to return to my role after missing it greatly.

I enjoy my job and it's lovely to see residents happy, laughing and enjoying themselves; it makes me feel like I’m really making a difference whilst being here.

Activities at White Lodge

Our Activities Coordinators here at White Lodge enjoy the fulfillment of helping residents feel important and a part of something. Meaningful moments are created through laughter and comfort. A varied activities programme is offered for the betterment of residents' bodies and minds, including music for health, 'Oomph' sessions and chair Zumba, in addition to coffee and cake groups that all inevitably lead to giggles and old fashioned singalongs. Also, we organise parties, trips out, walks in the country, bus outings and wonderful entertainers to visit our home. A sneaky tipple is always welcomed with cheese and crackers and, at the end of the day, it is important to go home knowing our activities have made a difference.

Run for Home

The White Lodge team recently did a fundraising event – Run for Home – dressed in 1950s-themed outfits. The team was dropped off 50 miles away from White Lodge, with the task of getting back without the aid of technology or money.

All money raised will go towards a Tovertafel Magic Table – an interactive light table that will greatly help those living with dementia here at White Lodge.
