Chris Dixon, Activities Co-ordinator
I have worked with Gracewell of Frome since 2014. I love my job as I get to know the residents personally and see them enjoy themselves which is hugely rewarding. We organise a variety of activities, entertainment and trips out which allow the residents to pick and choose what they wish to be involved in. This encourages person centred choices and enables residents to be involved in activities that truly interest them. Seeing the residents enjoy themselves is the best feeling and making this happen is what my job is all about.
Becki Macey, Activities Co-ordinator
I joined Gracewell of Frome in 2013 when the home first opened coming previously from a background in the care profession. I work closely with my colleague, Chris, to create a full and varied mix of events, outings and activities for our residents to enjoy. With such talented residents within our home it is wonderful to be able to showcase their many talents, including art classes, baking, quizzes, photography club and many more. The most enjoyable part of my role is to see the residents smile, laugh and get involved and take advantage of everything that is on offer to enhance their lives.
