Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Sam Lake

Sam leads our activities team at Woodside House. She has been at Woodside for 16 years, working in care and activities, and is now responsible for ensuring that there is always something for residents to do. Sam is very passionate about her work and loves putting smiles on the residents' faces.

Activities at Woodside House

Our activities team deliver a wide variety of mentally and physically stimulating activities and events for those we support, including coffee afternoons, which we hold every month for the local community, regular outings in our minibus, and visits from entertainers and musicians. Monthly resident meetings help us to ensure that those living here are getting the most out of our activities programme, and that our social events reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible. From growing our own vegetables to making giant paper-mâché animals, there is always something fun going on at Woodside House.

Flower Arranging
