As an Activities Coordinator, you will organise a varied programme of social, cultural and recreational activities, tailored to meet individual needs, promoting independence, and making each day of residents’ lives as fulfilling as possible.
- Offering meaningful activities to residents as a means of continuous growth in the quality of life, providing a sense of purpose for residents, according to their needs and as agreed in their individual care plans
- Offer stimulation of body and mind, both planned and spontaneous, to encourage the residents to live the life they choose within the local community, using the social model of disability
- Work with staff, families and volunteers within the home and local community in order to enhance the care and support of residents
- Examples of activities that would be beneficial: Music and movement (gentle exercises) to encourage movement of feet and hands; games and quizzes; ball games, such as skittles; sewing groups; painting groups; reminiscence therapy including old newspapers and discussing life experiences; gardening; external activities in the surrounding community including swimming and shopping; organising outings on a regular basis and entertainment in the home
