STAFF who organise activities at a Hamworthy care home were celebrated during a special week.
Upton Bay care home, run by Barchester Healthcare, marked National Activity Providers & Professionals Week, which ran from January 22 to 26, to thank those who arrange activities, trips and more.
National Activity Providers & Professionals Week is an annual event to support activity professionals and thank them for all the many different varied activities they provide to residents and patients.
Residents made a card and gave it to the activities coordinators, with a small gift of thanks for all that they do, as the home also enjoyed a small celebration.
Mevin Sohorye, general manager, said: “It is so wonderful to be able to celebrate National Activities Providers & Professionals Week and thank our fantastic activities teams for all their hard work by organising something for them for a change.”
Joyce, a resident at Upton Bay, added: “We’ve all had such a lovely time today, it really is a joy to be able to thank our wonderful activities coordinators for all that they do.
“They really make such a difference each and every day.”
