Meet our Activities Coordinator, Alphy George

I originally started working with Barchester from 2018.  My favorite part of the job is getting to know the specific interests of the individual residents living here and helping them continue them whilst living at Wilsmere House.

I get to learn something new and the resident gets to continue doing something they really love. It's a great feeling to know you can make such a difference to someone's day.

Activities at Wilsmere House

Most days, you will find our Activities Coordinators doing a range of different activities with residents, whether that be in a group setting or on a one-to-one basis. It is important that our activities team are passionate about the social events that we provide, and are dedicated to delivering an activities programme that reflect the interests and capabilities of those we support, so that life at Wilsmere House is full of fun.

Independence Day

Staff and residents at Wilsmere House got the flags out and celebrated American Independence Day in style by hosting a ranch inspired party with line dancing and cowboy hats on the 4th July. Many residents have visited America and some have family living there so American Independence Day was a great excuse to reminisce about previous trips and go on virtual tours to favourite places such as New York, the Grand Canyon and San Francisco. Residents enjoyed movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood as well as dancing to playlists including American greats such as Buddy Holly, Judy Garland and Frank Sinatra.
