Meet our Activities Coordinator, Fernanda Gomes
Hello, my name is Fernanda Gomes and I’m the Activities Coordinator here at Worplesdon View.
Since 2016, I have been part of this wonderful team, starting as a Hostess before moving on to Care Assistant, and finally to Activities Coordinator.
I have always been fond of talking and engaging with residents, knowing more about them and trying to understand them, as well as their loved ones. It gives me great pleasure knowing that I have put a smile on each of their faces.
There has never never a dull moment from the first day I started, which makes this job even more exciting, not knowing what to expect.
Activities at Worplesdon View
The activities team at Worplesdon View organise and run activities and events for large groups, small groups and individual residents. We include relatives, volunteers and the remaining staff whenever possible and encourage choice and participation from everyone we support. Our programme is planned in advance and is is designed provide tailored, meaningful activities for residents to participate in that will stimulate all senses, whist encouraging mental and physical well-being. We have an activity plan for all residents, and of course, this changes with the needs of each person to keep it up-to-date and useful. Worplesdon View is a fun and dynamic place to live and work, and the secret to this is that everyone is encouraged to see activities as part of their role in the home so that residents are happy and always have something to do.
Life at our home
We had a recent visit from a pet therapy dog, which made the residents very happy. The dog always finds its way to the ones who need it the most.
